The cupcake movie review for the weekend is Step Brothers, starring Will Farrell and John C. Reilly. We saw it with the kids last night. This movie was pretty much what I expected - with few more... visuals... than I expected. Put it this way: Loopy was sitting right beside me, I covered her head twice. But that's okay.
It was a little infantile. That's okay, too... we were in the mood for it. Veto and Buddy laughed all the way through. I admit, I split my side open a few times too. The premise - two grown men who live at home become stepbrothers when their parents marry - is too good to resist. There are some obvious laughs and sight gags. I do mean sight gags - you might want to pack a blindfold. Will Farrell is as charming as ever (think Elf) and John C. Reilly plays a pitch-perfect 40-year-old slacker with rage issues.
Check this one out if you don't mind fart jokes. Three and a half cupcakes.
