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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Dumb & Dumber revamped for Modern days.
19 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually don't write reviews for comedies, because they usually don't deserve one. These days, we know our actors and can say, "Yea, it's going to contain this sort of comedy, if I liked what he (or they) did last year, I will love this," and that isn't to put down comedies at all, they are made that way and they're hilarious (as most comedians usually write or co-write and produce their films these days). This film, which I never even heard whimpered or scoffed of anywhere, deserves a review, because I don't think many people paid it any mind.

The film was written by Forte (Dean Solomon), a recent SNL personality (I never watch it personally). I never knew his comedy style, but the two brothers, (John Solomon played by Arnett) both have symmetrical characters who play off each other as pretty much two men who were raised in a sheltered home and pretty much see everything in a very positive light.

Their own characters weren't even that annoying, as one might think, and I am easily annoyed by characters. They were straight forward guys who would ball-bust people with a smile on their face. The comedy is situational to them pretty much completing scenes with their personalities (playful 'burning' of each other with wise cracks or situations that happened to them and getting by spotty and racy situations by their pure ignorance to their offenses).

Simply put, if you like comedy, you will like this movie. It has a very good modern plot with a twist and two characters who are hilarious. If you liked Dumb and Dumber you should be reminded of the quaint quirky humor back in the 90's, with this new fresh look at situational comedy.

The plot also keeps moving, unlike some comedies that catch a snag. This movie is continuously in motion with pretty much trial and error scenes that are all a laugh.
