By Nicholas Barber It's not too soon to get nostalgic for the floppy-haired decade, according to this tender indie comedy and its lovable star Film 2 The Wackness Jonathan Levine 105 MINS, 15 Step Brothers Adam McKay 97 MINS, 15 Babylon AD Mathieu Kassovitz 90 MINS, 12 Angel Francois Ozon 105 MINS, 15 Well, it's happening already. Just when I'd got used to the idea of films looking back fondly at the Eighties, here comes The Wackness, which views 1994 as ancient, floppy-haired history....

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 Micheal Compton, The Daily News, Bowling Green, Ky. Jul. 31--fter the disappointing "Semi-Pro," Will Ferrell fans can rejoice with his follow-up, "Step Brothers." This vulgar (and let's be honest, pointless) comedy reteaming Ferrell with "Talladega Nights" director Adam McKay and co-star John C. Reilly isn't going to change the cinematic world -- but it does provide audiences with plenty of laughs, something sorely missing from Ferrell's previous project. Ferrell and Reilly play...

MORE IN DEMAND than crude oil these days are crude movies. Take "Step Brothers." It is a comedy about two 40-something guys who are still living with their respective parents until one's mother marries the other's father and they have to move in together. They don't like each other. They don't like the marriage. They flagrantly express their dislikes. Judd Apatow, the reigning guru of commercial movie comedies, is one of the producers, and everyone knows his not-very-secret formula for...

By Michael Smith, Tulsa World, Okla. Jul. 25--Playing lunk-headed chauvinists such as Ron Burgundy and over-competitive doofuses such as Ricky Bobby, Will Ferrell has long succeeded in the comedy of male stupidity on film. Building on his "Saturday Night Live" persona, the star grooved with his audience and built up a degree of goodwill. His newest effort, "Step Brothers," is bad Will. "Anchorman" and "Talladega Nights" were funny movies that pushed the envelope of good taste and their...
