Step Brothers (2008)

Sony Pictures Releasing

Ferrell and Anchorman director Adam McKay team up again and enlist John C. Reilly for the story of two very immature grown men, still living at home, who are forced to bunk together when their respective single parents (Mary Steenburgen and Richard Jenkins) fall in love.

It’s full of great set pieces, including a “Sweet Child O’ Mine” family singalong led by Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn, but our favorite moment in the whole thing might be Jenkins’ simple plea for silence as his son Dale (Reilly) monologues about the old bull and the young calf.

It’s one of the funniest comedies because it never tries too hard.
