To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Often, you see a preview that looks great and based on the preview you watch it. But often, the preview shows the only great scenes in the movie and afterward you regret watching it. I am happy to say that the incredibly funny R rated preview of Step Brothers show only a glimpse of this great movie. If you liked Wedding Crashers, you will love this movie. I don't give away plots in my review but I will say this has unique, in your face shockingly funny scenes that roll 1 after another. It has Will Ferrell at his idiot best, at least as good as he was in
Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (Unrated Widescreen Edition)
. And surprisingly, Reilly holds his own. I will put it this way, if you like movies such as
Good Luck Chuck (Unrated) [Blu-ray
Wedding Crashers [Blu-ray
Old School (Unrated Edition) [Blu-ray
Me, Myself & Irene [Blu-ray
Road Trip (Unrated Edition)
, you will enjoy Step Brothers. If raunchy humor appeals to you only sometimes, you may want to rent it first.
I first saw this movie when I was in the 6th grade and it was so funny because of the things they said and did. The reason I bought it on blu-ray now is because I just graduated from high school and now I'm looking for a job now and this movie relates to all of it. It relates to getting a job, living on your own and taking care of yourself and other people and that's why I love this movie because it relates to life things people have to go through and it makes fun of all of that which brings a smile onto my face. The movie is a 10/10
I bought this movie because of the commentary done by Will Ferell and John C. Reilly. The commentary is also a musical. It is 1 of 2 Blu-rays that I will ever own the other is tropic thunder the commentary is done in character by Robert Downey Jr. Also excellent.
Step Brothers takes the most hysterical route possible. I never really care for Will Ferrell before this, but he instantly became the funniest guy on earth while watching the first 10 minutes of this film. I still haven't seen the duo's previous film, but man are they a match made in heaven! Just when all of us youths thought comedies were predictable and unimpressive, Step Brothers comes out and changes the game completely. I'll compare it to other recent hilarious films like Judd Apatow's and company, but this by far is the most fun out of all of them. A perfectly pitched comedy, that literally couldn't be funnier.
Now since I displayed my passion for the movie, I'll que you in on the special features of the blu-ray. Top-notch my friend. Sony makes great blu-rays unlike Universal, and loads them up with significant segments and tolerable menus. Out of all the comedy blu-rays I own, this one had one of the best blu-ray set-ups. Other notable Blu-ray comedies that utilize blu-ray well would include The Hangover, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and Pineapple Express. We want to see unique menus with accessable special features. Distributors should take notice of this blu-ray and develop their own movies similarily to the way this one was made.
There are a lot of movies I like but few I am in love with. I am in love with Step Brothers, and I could watch it over and over and over again. It's my favorite comedy, and I'm confident it will be yours. It impresses you with amazing improvisation and it knows excatly what you want as the audience, something that few comedies can really achieve. Step Brothers is surely a cult movie that will last throughout years and years. Notice it as the funniest movie of its decade.
Love this film and the Blu-Ray has a great mix of versions and special features. I normally don't explore most of the features on DVDs and Blu-Rays anymore, but I did enjoy the various features, including the video about the composer Jon Brion (who's terrific by the way).
