It's really not my kind of comedy - gross-out humor, gratuitous filthy language and sketch comedy characterization - and the script is definitely lazy (the two leads play the exact same character, for example, and most scenes were arrived at through improv). Will Farrell and John C. Reilly play 40-year-old slackers still living with their single parent when those parents fall in love and get married, forcing them to share a room. They're almost impossibly childish though they do grow through the movie. It's pretty dumb, but I did wind up enjoying some of the secondary characters and the "fix everything" magical ending, and through it all, there are enough likable actors in it that it's never unwatchable.
i respect the movie, funny on occasion but something is missing. The missing thing is creativity.
