Though not without its screwball charm, The Brothers Solomon suffers from a lack of comic inspiration long before the film reaches the third trimester.

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.

Disappointing comedy that takes a single joke and attempts to stretch it over an entire movie, with predictably poor results.

Odd-couple comedy that tries much too hard and, in other ways, not hard enough.

Oh, brother! Firing blanks in every direction, this tedious vehicle for two hard-to-like comedians is stillborn from the off.

Direction is undistinguished, and the editing leaves far too much room for laughs that never arrive.

A series of musty gross-out gags ranging in sophistication from sperm bank hijinks to sloppy man-on-man kissing, Bob Odenkirk's cringemaker-with-a-heart is a ragged Xerox of Dumb And Dumber that seems incredibly creaky after the summer of Superbad.

The only amusement here comes from counting the imaginary tumbleweeds that so frequently roll across the screen.

Audiences will need an epidural to endure the excruciating pain of watching this geek-and-jerk combo stumble through three trimesters.

What feels like a three-hour descent into boredom is only a 90-minute test of might -- pitting you against unlikable characters, horribly written dialogue, and direction that's as painful as a root canal.
