'Step Brothers' Trailer Brings Back the Idiot-Man-Child Genre

February 28, 2008


The trailer to Step Brothers has arrived, with Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly effectively reinventing the strange partnership of two semi-retarded man-children that keeps you half-watching Dumb and Dumber when it's on cable (assuming that replacing fart jokes with shirtless jokes counts as reinvention). Surprisingly, and despite Ferrell again hamming it up with the usual shtick--this time marrying the childish naiveté of Elf and the assholeishness of Anchorman--it looks reasonably amusing. Probably worth watching once it replaces Dumb and Dumber on cable. Thanks for the tip, Kyle.
