Did You Know?

Trivia:
In the scene where Brennan and Dale are in their room showing each other their night vision goggles and autographed sword, the camera pans around while the characters are walking, and you can see a Hugalo's Pizza car light on top of the chest of drawers in the room. Will Ferrell worked for Hugalo's Pizza in "Talladega Nights" (which starred both Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly) after he lost his job as a race car driver.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During the Catalina Wine Mixer, the band Uptown Girl responds to a drunken party-goer's request that "We Didn't Start the Fire" be performed by saying that they play strictly '80s Joel Music. "We Didn't Start the Fire" came out in 1989 and was a No. 1 hit in the U.S. so it should be in their play list.See more »

a satisfying film that deserves a break, 30 December 2008
Author: Scott-101 from arlington, va

There's a difference between Step Brothers and Baby Mama. Step Brothers is not up to par with the best work of the Will Ferrell-Adam McKay writing team, but it is not like Baby Mama in the sense that it has made me lost faith in the brand. Many critics seem to not know the difference. Bob Hope and Bing Crosby made 7 films together. Would critics have given this film a bigger pass if Will Ferrell and John C Reiley's film were called Talladega Nights II? What I'm getting it is I thought this film was plenty funny and certainly inventive enough. In fact, I stayed in the theater and watched it twice. The big stars of the film are not John C Reilly and Will Ferrell but Mary Steenburgen and Richard Jenkins for holding down straight faces and being convincing as a loving dad and a loving mom of such silly characters. You could insert the characters played by Jenkins and Steenburgen into something like Cheaper by the Dozen or Gilmore Girls and it would still pretty much work.
