Well it's a toss-up for me as to which was the best comedy of '08. Both films have a lot of replay value. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly playing forty-year-olds who are somewhat mentally challenged and emotionally handicapped? Or, Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott playing big brother mentors to one rambunctious kid and McLovin if he were from Middle Earth?
For me, Step Brothers was a very welcome change of pace for Ferrell. His most recent movies, aside from a great turn in Stranger Than Fiction, rather lazily employed the same premise: put Will in a somewhat odd profession and roll camera--Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Blades of Glory, Semi Pro, etc.
On the other hand, Rudd and Scott have never been better than in Role Models.
You can't go wrong with either. And if you're going to ask me to pick one over the other, I won't. They're both great comedies.
What say you?
Another great review for The Unearthed just came out!
Trevas of eBookGuru (www.ebookguru.org) had this to say: "This was one of those books that I couldn’t put down (I stayed up till 3am to finish it), and I am highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys a good thriller."
