It's still no Anchorman or Old School, but this next Will Ferrell project Step Brothers looks like it might be at least better than Semi-Pro. For one thing, it's directed and co-written by Adam McKay who wrote Anchorman and who, of course, collaborated with his daughter Pearl to make the viral video "The Landlord." For another thing, it seems like it will be based on these two big kids, Brennan (Ferrell) and Dale (Reilly), and their competitive/loving relationship, as opposed to something a little more gimmicky, like race-car driving or the 1970s in general.
In other news, this is the movie for which Will Ferrell auctioned off a role to support his friend's charity, Cancer for College. The role ultimately went to a 10-year-old boy from Dallas for just over $47,000.
Step Brothers opens July 25. The trailer made me laugh out loud in a few spots, so to check it out and tell me what you think,
