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…
“Brennan, that is the voice of an angel. Brennan I can’t even make eye contact with you right now. Your voice is like a combination of Fergie and Jesus.”
Regardless of the massive amount of times I've seen this, Step Brothers never loses its hilarity or charm.
I just think its absolutely brilliant. I have for years, and I can't see this ever being demoted from being one of the funniest films I've ever seen.
In terms of production it's probably not worth 5 stars. But for all the evenings it's made 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…
Step Brothers is easily one of the funniest movies ever made. Will Ferrell is the greatest comedian ever. His and John C. Reilly's chemistry is spot on and each of them are hilarious. The moments where I was in tears laughing are to many to count. Anything Will Ferrell does is comedic brilliance even if he is just standing there making a silly face. The finale of Will Ferrell singing Opera to save the day is the hilarious. If I were to half to choose a favorite part it would be a the job interview scene. I highly recommend this film.
I don't know; it was okay, I guess? Adam Scott & Kathryn Hahn gave me the most laughs. This is one of the few comedies that pops up on 'best of' lists so I tried to give it a fair shake, but I think I am possibly too humorless for Will Farrell sometimes. I would have liked it had it committed wholly to being awful to the leads or made them more sympathetic -- I mostly rooted for them to fail, even at the end.
"I'm so not a raper!"
you better not touch my fucking drumset
Richard Jenkins can do ANYTHING.
The fuckin Catalina WINE MIXER.
I feel wrong for liking this so much.
The apex of the "bro" comedy. A fucking riot.
Don't touch me, "Your voice is like a mix between Fergie and Jesus" is the best compliment ever, don't even try.
Not one laugh. 1 star for making me think Catalina Wine Mixers are a thing.
one of the great 21st century comedies
i always forget just how warm hearted this ends up being
