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.

A better film would have matched Arnett's seemingly effortless intensity throughout. This okay film does merely okay by it.

It's a moderately funny premise in search of some real laughs.

September 7, 2007
Neither Odenkirk's limp direction nor SNL alumnus Will Forte's script -- not nearly clever enough to get away with its questionable gags about matters sexual and racial -- provides much by way of actual plot or comedy.

Odenkirk keeps the absurdity both contained and free-flowing.

It's hard to hate a movie that tries so valiantly to resurrect the career of Lee Majors. But even that noble task ultimately fails.

Better suited to 10 minutes of television than 90 minutes of cinema.

The upbeat brothers are full of sweetness and love, but the script is made of taffy, and if you can chew and laugh at the same time, you're welcome to it.

September 7, 2007
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.
September 7, 2007
The film is another example of how talented TV performers often lose their way in movies.

It works, and has the makings of a cult comedy to-be.

September 7, 2007
The trick to a comedy like this is to make an audience care about these goofballs, but we're just like everyone else the brothers come into contact with. We simply wish they would go away.

Early on you realize these dorks aren't going to get any funnier, and it's a sinking feeling. Oh, no! Oh, no! Oh, noooo!

This new goof might have been funnier still if the premise weren't so derivative, so just been there, done that.

It isn't funny.

September 6, 2007
Aforced split-the-baby comedy that proves unwise from its very conception.
September 6, 2007
These sibs make the dim bulbs of such Farrelly Brothers' comedies as Dumb and Dumber and Me Myself and Irene seem like Mensa Club members.

Feels like a cheapo, soft-R retread of the dimwits' progress from Dumb and Dumber
