While John C. Reilly bombed at the movie box office in Judd Apatow’s he is back in Apatow’s latest production, “Step Brothers.”
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, who last teamed in the box-office smash now star in “Step Brothers,” directed by Adam McKay ().
In “Step Brothers,” produced by Judd Apatow, Ferrell plays Brennan Huff, a sporadically employed thirty-nine-year-old who lives with his mother, Nancy (Mary Steenburgen). Reilly plays Dale Doback, a terminally unemployed forty-year-old who lives with his father, Robert (Richard Jenkins). When Robert and Nancy marry and move in together, Brennan and Dale are forced to live with each other as step brothers. As their narcissism and downright aggressive laziness threaten to tear the family apart, these two middle-aged, immature, overgrown boys will orchestrate an insane, elaborate plan to bring their parents back together. To pull it off, they must form an unlikely bond that maybe, just maybe, will finally get them out of the house.
