Step Brothers (2008)

The movie had several hilarious moments. I'm laughing just thinking about some of them right now. On the other hand, I felt the plot wasn't that strong, because I had a hard time believing the scenario of the first half of the movie. However, I'm not upset, because I have lower expectations for plot when watching comedy movies. Also, the interaction between Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly creates the comedy, not the reason why they're interacting. I guess at some point I treated the movie as a bunch of related comedy skits.

Dale Doback (John C. Reilly) and Brennan Huff (Will Ferrell)

It's getting late, so I'll finish up by saying that I like Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) better than Step Brothers, which also starred both Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. Between the two plots, the plot for Talladega Nights was more coherent than the plot for Step Brothers.

Watching the movie today, I didn't have any complaints about it. In particular, I didn't have any complaints about the plot. Overall, I enjoyed it.

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.
