If you go to this film
expecting the worst you’ve ever seen, you won’t be disappointed. If it
looks idiotic in the trailer, it’s worse in person. The ridiculous story
is that Nancy Huff (Mary Steenburgen) and Robert Doback (Richard
Jenkins) fall in love and get married. They bring into the marriage
their 40-year-old sons, Brennan Huff (Ferrell, who also co-wrote the
script with director Adam McKay) and Dale Doback (John C. Reilly). They
have adolescent mentalities, enabled by their clueless, doting parents,
and don’t get along. Then they get along. Then they fight with their
Perhaps the most damning
part of the story is that both Ferrell and Reilly have “story by”
credits. If that’s not enough to keep you from this film, the producer
is Judd Apatow.
These guys are on the
Hollywood establishment lunatic left, so, not surprisingly, they open
the film with one of President Bush’s mangled quotes. It has nothing to
do with the movie, but, hey, they want to appeal to critics, most of
whom hate President Bush. Predictably, at my screening, which was
all-media, the quote got the biggest laugh of the film.
Totally bereft of humor, an
insult to the intelligence of anyone over the age of reason,
reprehensibly crude, this is worse than stupid. It uses vulgar language
to try to make jokes based mostly on excrement and genitalia, subjects
which abound in Apatow-Ferrell films.
