...benefits from the inclusion of several genuinely funny whacked-out bits of comedy...
| Original Score: 2.5/4
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.
Relentlessly bad taste.
| Original Score: 3/5
The film as a whole encounters some bumps in the road, but it is also better than most will be expecting.
A better film would have matched Arnett's seemingly effortless intensity throughout. This okay film does merely okay by it.
| Original Score: B-
Odenkirk keeps the absurdity both contained and free-flowing.
The Brothers Solomon isn't for all tastes, but if you like your comedy a little twisted, it's a satisfying, if imperfect, swig of silliness.
The movie doesn't have much visual style or atmosphere, but it does have a kinder, gentler spirit than many gross-out comedies, and that makes it a likable time killer.
It works, and has the makings of a cult comedy to-be.
| Original Score: B
It won't work for everyone, but it will work for some people. I was one of those people. You might not be. What else can I tell you?
| Original Score: 1/5
Though not without its screwball charm, The Brothers Solomon suffers from a lack of comic inspiration long before the film reaches the third trimester.
| Original Score: 2/4
Disappointing comedy that takes a single joke and attempts to stretch it over an entire movie, with predictably poor results.
| Original Score: 2/5
Odd-couple comedy that tries much too hard and, in other ways, not hard enough.
A dismal gross-out comedy.
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.
