Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a silly, often crude comedy aimed at the young adult male market. Those offended by crude humor, constant rough language, and broad physical gags would best to steer clear. Fans of the two stars will have plenty to savor here.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Few films are worse to sit through than comedies that don't work. Step Brothers is one of those.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average I'm sure I've seen movies with more extreme language than 'Step Brothers,' but here it seems to serve no purpose other than simply to exist. In its own tiny way, it lowers the civility of our civilization.

USA Today Full Review
Average Like a few other comedies in recent memory, this feels it should have been a Saturday Night Live skit rather than a full-length film.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 111 moviegoers:
TEENS:As expected, THE GUYS LOVED "STEP BROTHERS." The female reviews were good, but not great. Just over half truly enjoyed it with most of the rest rating it "Good/Average." Just a few actually hated it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:About three-quarters of the guys loved it, but most of the remaining quarter rated it fairly low. The females rated "Step Brothers" somewhat lower. Only about half truly enjoyed it. About half of the remaining reviews are in the average to below average range, which is prety low. Quite a large percentage rated it "Poor." Overall, recommended for the guys but the ladies should proceed with caution.
ADULTS:Just over half of the male and female reviews are "Very Good," or higher. This indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. The remaining reviews are very mixed. They range from average to terrible. This means that you have about a 50/50 chance of truly enjoying "Step Brothers."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Brennan Huff (Will Ferrell) is a sporadically employed thirty-nine-year-old who lives with his mother, Nancy (Mary Steenburgen). Dale Doback (John C. Reilly) is a terminally unemployed forty-year-old who lives with his father, Robert (Richard Jenkins). When Robert and Nancy marry and move in together, Brennan and Dale are forced to live with each other as step brothers. As their narcissism and downright aggressive laziness threaten to tear the family apart, these two middle-aged, immature, overgrown boys will orchestrate an insane, elaborate plan to bring their parents back together. To pull it off, they must form an unlikely bond that maybe, just maybe, will finally get them out of the house.
