Step Brothers 2008 (R)

Ferrell, Reilly, and director McKay re-team (after 2006's “Talladega Nights”) for what we hope is a yuk fest. Middle-aged Brennan Huff (Ferrell) is still living with his mother, Nancy (Steenburgen). Equally useless Dale Doback (Reilly) lives with dad, Robert (Jenkins). After Nancy and Robert marry, they inform the competitive step-siblings that they must get jobs and move out, causing the immature duo to form an unlikely bond. Not yet reviewed. ?m/C Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Mary Steenburgen, Richard Jenkins, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn; D: Adam McKay; W: Will Ferrell, Adam McKay; C: Oliver Wood.
