Step Brothers (2008)

Step Brothers (2008)

The Siblings: Brennan (Will Ferrell) and Derek Huff (Adam Scott)

What puts them at odds? Brennan and Derek are polar opposites, the younger brother (Derek) an unstoppable striver while his older brother languishes in the parental nest.

The stepbrothers of the title, Brennan Huff and Dale Doback (John C. Reilly), actually get along very well once they realise how much they have in common. The real rivalry here is between Brennan and his over-achieving little brother Derek, who has married, produced two beautiful children and taught his brood to sing obnoxiously in close harmony. The slovenly Brennan can’t compete on preppiness or grooming, but finally manages to connect with his brothers thanks to a moving rendition of ‘Por Ti Volare’ at the Catalina Wine Mixer. Music really does make the people come together. Just like Madonna said.

Which sibling is your favourite?
