Storyline

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>

So funny that I watched it twice in a row
20 January 2009 | by stratsz28See all my reviews

I had rather low expectations for this movie based on the IMDb rating. I was more than pleasantly surprised. This movie was extremely funny but does require an outside-the-box sense of humor.

I rarely watch a movie twice in a row (I think Finding Nemo or O Brother Where Art Thou was the last time), but I could not help seeing this one a second time. In fact, I'm getting so excited as I write this review that I may go watch it again.

Before you decide to watch this movie, realize that your enjoyment of The Brothers Solomon will hinder on these qualifications: 1. You probably should already appreciate the work of Will Arnett and Will Forte. 2. You don't care at all about the quality of the plot. 3. You are willing to tolerate the fact that many components of the plot are very unrealistic.
