By GATES, Charlie Step Brothers (R16) Directed by Adam McKay * * Reviewed by Charlie Gates . Step Brothers has no lack of comic talent, but a major shortage of charisma and laughs. I wanted to like this film and had high hopes, but was disappointed. On paper it should work. You have the obvious comic talents of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, the director of Anchorman, and the backing of Judd Apatow, the creative powerhouse behind a string of comedy hits such as The 40-year-old...

Will Ferrell's man-child comedy routine is beginning to wear so thin it's becoming hard to remember why we ever found him funny. Step Brothers again sees him played a middle-aged man who behaves like a spoilt pre-adolescent and unless you find jokes about flatulence and beating up 10-year-old boys funny, then this really is to be avoided. The feeling of deja vu is further enhanced by the reuniting of Ferrell with his Talladega Nights co-star John C Reilly. They play stay-at-home...

By Kate Dawson WHEN it comes to showing the funny side of serious situations, you can always rely on Hollywood's Frat Pack - the band of comic brothers led by the likes of Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell. From Ben's pathetic stalker in There's Something About Mary, to Steve Carrell's 40-Year-Old Virgin and last year's Knocked Up - a tale of accidental pregnancy written, directed and produced by new golden boy Judd Apatow - the pack, who love to pop up in each other's films, have poked fun...

By GRANT LAUCHLAN ANOTHER week and another comedy from Hollywood golden boy Judd Apatow. If he were making pop music, he'd be the movie equivalent of Stock, Aitken and Waterman. Since last summer's smash hit Knocked Up, he's released six movies, with another, Pineapple Express, due for release next month. But with quantity are we getting quality? Well if Step Brothers is anything to go by, then yes, and no. Apatow's movies are irreverent and absurd, but oddly, considering how gross...

By TARA CAIN STEP BROTHERS (15) STARS: Will Ferrel, John C Reily, Mary Steenburgen. DIRECTOR: Adam McKay. THE biggest laugh in Adam McKay's comedy of escalating sibling rivalry comes before the opening credits roll. We are treated to one of George W Bush's infamous turns of phrase, taken from a campaign speech in 2000, when he proudly declared, "Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream." This unintentional verbal faux pas surpasses anything in McKay and Will...

By JAMES MOTTRAM Film STEP BROTHERS ACROSS THE UK John C Reilly is ranting. The 43-year-old actor is furious about some of the less-than-complimentary reviews of his new film, Step Brothers, a brash comedy about two overgrown adolescents still living at home. "We were in some way commenting on real things in this movie. Things like family relationships and this phenomenon of the man-child. We were trying to talk about what it's like to be in America right now and how spoilt we are." The...
