Another year, another personal list. These are my favorites, ranked and sorted.
They grow up so fast.
Brennan Huff and Dale Doback might be grown men. But that doesn't stop them from living at home and turning into jealous, competitive stepbrothers when their single parents marry. Brennan's constant competition with Dale strains his mom's marriage to Dale's dad, leaving everyone to wonder whether they'll ever see eye to eye.
"Holy Santa Claus shit!"
Quite possibly my favorite comedy of all time. The Adam McKay and Will Ferrell duo struck cult gold with Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, but the absurdity was raised even further with this surreal masterpiece. Step Brothers is an absolute hilarity from beginning to end, conjuring a level of insanity within such immaculate casting and performances that you can't help but be in total awe of its creation.
The film never stops, jumping from mountain peak to mountain peak of utter foolishness in a way that only heightens its strange logic. Step Brothers doesn't take the easy way out and craft some action climax to conclude its character arcs; Instead, it takes a complete nosedive…
Regardless of the massive amount of times I've seen this, Step Brothers never loses its hilarity or charm.
A completely laid-back and honest comedy, it's original in its plot and witty in its dialogue.
It's incredible crudeness is balanced out by its cuteness and quirky soundtrack.
I just think its absolutely brilliant. I have for 5 years, and no doubt will continue to for many more to come.
It's not worth 5 stars. But for all the evenings it's helped me laugh through, I couldn't possibly give it any less.

This is one of my favorite comedies so I have no idea why it's been so long since the last time I watched it (and by 'so long', I mean probably a year or so). Step Brothers is ridiculous and can (obviously, with the talent involved) be so immature in it's humor - but that's exactly why I love every moment of it. Like Anchorman, there are so many quotable lines (many of which I actually reference pretty often in my life - and if you don't get certain references from either movie, then you're probably not as cool a friend/family member as I originally thought).
I give it the full five-star rating because it's a personal favorite and one of those comedies that I can continuously rewatch for the rest of my life and never get sick of it. One of Will Ferrell's best, in my opinion.
it may be dumb but it still gets me laughing...
and the t shirts that both of them wear throughout the movie are freaking awesome!

When Andrea and I first started seeing each other, she quickly became accustomed to my funny bone being nursed by Will Ferrell in 'Anchorman'. Shortly afterwards, 'Step Brothers' was released, and dually became a house favourite. Starring Ferrell and Reilly in the eponymous roles, the juvenile ridiculousness that ensues, is not only mind numbingly stupid, but hilarious. It is the kind of film, that doesn't come along often, with a moronic, slapstick approach that not only captivates, but entertains to a degree few others can muster.
Nothing about Step Brothers is particularly intelligent, it is almost base level comedy, the likes I loved from supremo's such as Mike Myers and Leslie Nielson in times gone by. Yet, the film also…
I laugh every single time I watch it.
It's nearly aged really well -- the two leads obviously have good chemistry but it's Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn steal every scene they're in. Some of the narrative stuff drags out a lot, but it's still super fun and pretty consistent on delivering laughs.
Pretty much as advertised, but that's not totally a bad thing. The characters are funny and, even though the joke is simple and kinda one-note, it does work. It's stupid, and loud, and a circus, and SO enamored with the magic, laugh-giving powers of F-bombs. But what else did you expect? John C. Reilly's great, burying someone alive is hilarious, and I'd definitely watch again. Without hesitation.
Hilarious from beginning to end thanks to its commitment to its stupidity.
That was needed today.
After recently not being able to get through the first 45 min of Taladega Nights, it was refreshing to see that this movie still holds up.
mildly amusing in spots
Hated this movie the first few times I saw it, now I see that it's brilliant. One of my favorite films now.

Everyone else is doing it. No order because that's tricky.
