Storyline Heading
Two good-hearted but romantically-challenged brothers. When they find out their dying father’s last wish is for a grandchild, the brothers set out to find someone to have a baby with. But after spending their formative years being home-schooled by their father in a remote arctic location, their social skills prove to be somewhat lacking and their attempts at fatherhood go hysterically and disastrously wrong.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a silly, sometimes raunchy, comedy aimed at the young adult male audience, particularly those who like Saturday Night Live-like comedy. Despite the silly PG-13 appearances, this is indeed rated R and for a reason: raunchy references and constant rough language.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The Brothers Solomon follows the hapless quest of brothers John (Will Arnett) and Dean Solomon (Will Forte) to find a woman — any woman — willing to bear their child and fulfill the wish of their dying father (Lee Majors). After a few dating disasters, it looks as if the brothers may beat the odds and find what they're looking for when Dean meets a woman eager to have his baby. Unfortunately, she is flattened by a passing bus right before his eyes.

Undeterred, the single-minded brothers change tactics, ditching conventional dating to try their luck with, in short succession, a street hooker, an adoption agency and finally, the Craigslist website. Their online ad quickly attracts a response from Janine (Kristen Wiig), who agrees to be a surrogate mother for their child — for a hefty fee. Janine's pining ex, James (Chi McBride), is none too thrilled about her decision, but a trip to the fertility clinic ensues and before long Janine is with child.

As the pregnancy progresses and the brothers embark on an ill-advised self-study course in parenting, Janine finally begins to warm to the brothers' earnest enthusiasm. Even James, with whom she is now reunited, can't help but laugh at their antics. Perhaps they will make decent dads after all.

But as the birth date looms, Janine gets cold feet and vanishes. For the first time, the brothers' tireless optimism flags and it occurs to them that – despite the double Ph.D.s they each earned during their home schooling days in the North Pole – they might be losers after all. But rather than give up, the tenacious siblings decide to do everything within their power to find Janine and fulfill their father's wish.
