STEP BROTHERS (2008) GO! 9.30PM, MA15+, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Will Fer­rell’s char­ac­ter in this bois­ter­ous com­edy is a man who acts like an over­grown child – but this time, that’s the plot. Fer­rell (above) re­unites with his Tal­ladega Nights off­sider John C. Reilly for this tale about two adult ado­les­cents who never moved out of home. Push­ing their pre­vi­ous com­edy en­ve­lope only in terms of swear­ing, Fer­rell and Reilly star as the pair forced to live to­gether when their sin­gle par­ents Nancy and Robert (Mary Steen­bur­gen and Richard Jenk­ins) tie the knot. Fer­rell ev­i­dently be­lieves that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – but for all its crass hu­mour and silly di­a­logue,

Step­Broth­ers has plenty of

heart. ★★★
