Opening on July 25th is the new Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly comedy “Step Brothers.” If you haven’t heard of the film yet, it’s about two 40 year old men that still live at home. Here’s the synopsis:
Will plays Brennan Huff, a sporadically employed thirty-nine-year-old who lives with his mother, Nancy (Mary Steenburgen). John plays Dale Doback, 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.
While the synopsis sounds like gold to me, I’m even more excited as “Step Brothers” reteams Will with writer/director Adam McKay. Perhaps you saw their last two films… “
Again, “Step Brothers” arrives in theaters July 25th.
