Step Brothers: 6.5 out of 10.
Roger Ebert, your job is safe. This movie reviewing thing is hard. I recently watched a Coen Brothers film I had high hopes for, thought it was okay and punished it with a 6.5 out of 10 rating. Then, I watched this Adam McKay movie I thought would suck hard, and I was pleasantly surprised. The end result? Both Step Brothers and Burn After Reading ended up with the same grade.
I know, it doesn't make sense, does it? Maybe it's because the genres are so different? Maybe it's because of my sky high hopes for one and my gutter low hopes for the other? Like I said, this isn't easy.
Maybe it was my awesome mood, or maybe it was the cheap drugs, but I laughed loud and often during Step Brothers and if you have a problem with that, join the club. I no longer trust my own judgement.
