Frantic confrontational comedy in which two middle-age but immature stay-at-home sons – one a would-be singer (Will Ferrell), the other an aspiring drummer (John C. Reilly) – become unwilling roommates and violent rivals after their respective single parents (Mary Steenburgen and Richard Jenkins) wed, later bonding as friends based on their common hatred of the former's smarmily successful younger brother (Adam Scott). Affirmations of familial loyalty and enduring idealism lose out in director and co-writer Adam McKay's film, to all manner of distasteful excess. Nongraphic premarital and adulterous sexual activity, frontal male nudity, pervasive sexual and scatological humor, drug and pornography references, pervasive rough and crude language, and some profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O – morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R – restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
