Will Ferrell plays Brennan, a 39-year-old perpetual child who still lives at home with his mother for reasons that are only mildly explored. Brennan’s mom meets a man, Dr. Doback, with his own 40-year-old son at home, Dale. The two single parents decide to get married and, of course, chaos ensues when the two households are combined. it would be difficult to summarize just how far over-the-top Ferrell goes with STEP BROTHERS without giving away too many of the film’s best scenes, but suffice it to say that STEP BROTHERS contains everything from musical interludes to scrotal drumming to “Benchwarmers” style kid on adult violence to a music video that you will likely completely hate but be completely unable to erase from your memory. In other words, it’s typical Ferrell. (Richard Propes)
