Will Ferrell and Adam McKay collaborated on the script for this 2008 comedy film, which was directed by McKay and stars Ferrell, McKay, and John C. Reilly. They’re compelled to live together as brothers after their still-single parents, Brennan (Ferrell) and Dale (Reilly), marry each other after they’ve grown up and left home. The cast also includes Richard Jenkins, Mary Steenburgen, Adam Scott, and Kathryn Hahn.
Step Brothers Plot
Brennan Huff and Dale Doback, both 40, are still living with their parents. Brennan lives with his divorced mother, Nancy, and Dale resides with his father, Robert, who has recently been widowed. As a result of Robert and Nancy’s courtship and subsequent marriage, both Brennan and Dale now have to deal with life as stepbrothers.
Brennan and Dale are enmities for interfering with each other’s personal lives, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s not the first time Brennan has been warned not to touch Dale’s drum equipment, and it’s certainly not the last. In the midst of an argument, Dale confronts him and the two engage in a brutal brawl. There is no television for a week, and they must find work within a month, or they will be kicked out of the house.
