The Brothers Solomon (2007)
Critic Consensus: Squandering its impressive cast with poorly-directed gags, The Brothers Solomon is a one-joke film stretched well beyond its limits.
Mr. Show alumnus Bob Odenkirk directed -- and SNL vet Will Forte scripted -- this gleefully raunchy tale of two socially backward but kind-hearted adult brothers, Dean and John Solomon (Forte and Will Arnett), who had the misfortune to be home-schooled by their father at a remote Arctic outpost. Destined to be perpetually single, their moronic, klutzy attempts at meeting new women (such as popping the question on a first date in a crowded restaurant) always blow up in their face. Then, one day, the Solomons receive the distressing news that their father is on his deathbed -- and to complicate matters, he indicates that his dying wish involves having a grandchild. John and Dean are happy to oblige -- but where in the world will they find a mother for this infant? Suddenly, the bachelors' romantic desperation doubles, and each brother embarks on a nutty, madcap quest to find the girl of his dreams and the mother of his future children. Malin Akerman, Kristen Wiig, Jenna Fischer, and Chi McBride co-star. … More

Critic Reviews for The Brothers Solomon
The story makes no sense, and the two lead characters are repulsive, but I must confess I laughed immoderately at this clever piece of junk.
Three gags miss for every one that hits.
I was so angry at everybody involved in the making of this film. It's just astonishing.
Though not without its screwball charm, The Brothers Solomon suffers from a lack of comic inspiration long before the film reaches the third trimester.
Audience Reviews for The Brothers Solomon
This is one of the stupidest movies I have ever seen. I sat through the entire film but there was never a time when I like it. The ending was the only relief of charm in the film. The dialogue is terrible, the comedy sucks, Will Arnett and Will Forte should think twice before doing anything like this again, and this entire movie fails miserably. I expected this movie to be bad, but not this bad. Wow, the Brothers Solomon is just plain awful. It makes you feel good at the end, but the rest of the movie not salvageable in any way. The idea was absolutely pointless from the start!
Stupid, but cute, all at the same time. I might watch again, but more than likely won't.
For as stupid as it was, I did laugh out loud a few times. Probably because I miss Job from Arrested Development. Nothing says love like a diaper full of popcorn and dead duckling.
