Last week, I had free passes to see Step Brothers. The night of the screening we had dramatic thunder storms, traffic into the city was a mess, early reviews on the film were poor, I decided to stay home. All week I've been wondering, "could it really be that bad?" Also, Richard Jenkins is one of my favorite actors, I was anxious to see his performance. After a long week, today was one of those days I didn't want to talk to anyone, so I scheduled a triple play at the movies. Step Brothers was everything I expected. Silly story, poor execution, but Jenkins' performance made it worth my movie dollar. I kind of felt sorry for the guy who tried to engage me in conversation, on the way out, by saying, "that was freakin' hilarious!" Not so much for me.
