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.

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.

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.

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?

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

mostly unfunny

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

November 2, 2007
Odd-couple comedy that tries much too hard and, in other ways, not hard enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

A dismal gross-out comedy.
Neil Smith

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

Paul Arendt

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

November 2, 2007
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.
