John and Dean Solomon may have Ph.D.s, but they're socially inept after their widowed father home-schooled them in Antarctica. When their beloved dad falls into a coma, they hatch a plan to revive him using a positive emotional shock - giving him a grandchild. They find a surrogate mom through Craig's list - she's Janine, a penniless local musician, with a large, intimidating boyfriend, James. The pregnancy gives the Solomons nine months to learn to be parents. In a side story, John pursues Tara, a neighbor who takes care of their dad when John and Dean are out; but she has no interest in John. Can the boys keep Janine and James happy, keep dad alive, and learn to be dads? Written by
Will Forte had a piece of boiled okra in his mouth to create the drool during the kissing scene. See more »
The scene where the microwave trips the electricity, where they decide that Dean will revive the father while John gets the circuit breakers. Dean runs to the circuit breakers while John runs to the father. After the lights come back, Dean is at the father while John is at the circuit breakers. See more »
I hate everyone who was critical of this movie!!!!!!!
The ratings I have seen on this movie have cemented the fact that people on IMDb take movies way to seriously. After laughing my a** off for the second time in a row, I read the reviews for Brothers Solomon on IMDb and was pi**ed at what I saw. Besides the fact that it was ranked 5.0 out of 10.0 when it was one of the funniest movies I have seen in the last five years assures me that either I have a bizarre sense of humor, or that people who are on IMDb take themselves way to f***ing seriously. I've decided both are true.
First off, if you like Wet Hot American Summer, stop reading now and watch brothers Solomon. It's hilarious.
Easily the funniest opening credit sequence I have ever seen. And simple too.
I read people saying that this movie wasn't developed properly, or it was random. What THE F***!!!! That's what's funny about this movie. It's Crazy Absurd!!!!!!!!! It's the two most absurd male characters since Lloyd and Harry from Dumb and Dumber. This movie is not Schindler's List. I'm sorry for whoever thought it would be.
If you want silly ridiculous comedy, watch this movie. I am now sitting in a room with 6 people who are laughing their asses off at random parts of the movie. Honestly, its good. I don't know why it didn't do better.
Will Forte and Will Arentt both RULE!
