Movie Review - Step Brothers & Wanted

This week we watched two new(er) movies. Step Brothers & Wanted. I have to say overall both were VERY good choices!

Step Brothers was Hilarious! Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly together are just brilliant. I want to hang out with them. And the absolutely gorgeous Mary Steenburgen, I mean come on she looks better at 55 then most of us look in our 30’s! It was a really good movie! Seeing these two men act like 5-year-old kids is just funny. I mean, there is a predictable plot, the characters are over done, and some of it makes no sense….but THAT is why it is so funny. And you shouldn’t expect more then good laughs and fart jokes. Favorite quote is when Dale (John) hears Brennan (Will) sing for the first time and says, “You have the voice of an angel. I mean, it's like a cross between Fergie and Jesus. I can’t even look at you right now.” HAHA! This is a movie you will just want to keep quoting.

As for Wanted, I have to say I really liked it, though I could say this movie isn’t for everyone. The movie is based off a comic and features James McAvoy (um, yummy), Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jolie and a few others you would easily recognize. This is one of those movies that is just cool. The movie isn’t always logical, a bit predictable at times, and there are some gaps and moments where you are like…what. But overall it has enough actions and cool special effects to keep you watching and I really don’t think this movie is trying to be anything other then a cool-ass action movie…….the kind of movie that has a lot of fighting, a lot of big guns, and a lot of chasing. The movie moves fast so you don’t ever really get bored watching, which is great. Oh, and did I mention James McAvoy is HOT! Overall, it was good….I would watch it again and I would probably buy it. K. even said, which I TOTALLY agree with: “If it wasn’t for the morality, I would want to be an assassin.” It does that, just makes it look cool to kick some ass!

And the BEST thing about both these movies is that they both featured the song, “Time to Say Goodbye” by Andrea Bocell! How weird is that! They were in two completely different movies and settings. (p.s. that is one of my favorite songs)


  1. Mmmmmm... James McAvoy. Good for the soul!

  2. I enjoyed Step Brothers, too. However, I have to say - I did not enjoy the Dewey Cox story. Have you seen it? Blech. Ew. Terrible.

    I just don't think that John C. Reilly can carry a COMEDY on his own.

    (Don't get me wrong, I think he's GREAT...)

  3. I agree that Step Bros is funny, but totally a fart movie and dumb jokes galore(the voice of an angel part made me laugh too).

    I have heard James McAvoy is hot in action, I will have to check it out. I bet I would like Wanted, sounds right up my alley (I like superhero, action, comic, assassin movies).

  4. Nothing like seeing somebody teabag a drum set!

  5. Dude, I mean seriously! That was awesome!

  6. I haven't seen any upcoming movies with Will Farrel, I guess he is laying low.
