Step Brothers was funny enough when I saw it in theaters, but I'd more or less recommended it was the kind of movie best watched when it came out on DVD, since it was neither painfully awful nor so life-changing as to warrant the $10.75 ticket price (and few things are these days). I still believe this to be true, because the movie, while certainly not the finest example of this genre of comedy, is still a goofy good time for the most part. The bonus features, however, are pretty worthless with one exception.
You'll forgive me if I didn't feel like watching the entire movie with the Audio Commentary on. I'm sure it is marginally funny, but you'll have to risk it yourself. On to the meat of the feat -- wait for it -- ures:
Considering the entire movie seems like an extended series of improvised skits, the Extended/Alternate Scenes don't really add much. After thirty seconds of watching the heart-to-heart Brennan (Will Ferrell) and Dale (John C. Reilly) have while wearing night-vision goggles, you kinda get the idea. Extending any of these scenes is an exercise in overkill.
Line-O-Rama exploits the above-mentioned improvisational bits to perfect effect, showing multiple takes of the same line and displaying just how uproariously funny Ferrell and Reilly are with on-the-fly comedy. Seriously, the Ku Klux Klan/Hitler scene had me ROTFL-ing. But the true revelation is Adam Scott, who delivers some of the most outrageous shiz ever. He was great in the movie, but this features allows us to really see him at work, and the results ("I had my nipples removed because I am not a girl") will have you laughing 'til you cry.
Ever heard of the Beastie Boys? And Youtube? Then Boats and Hoes, the video featuring Brennan and Dale's fictional music group will not impress you.
I never really got the thinking behind the Making Of features for movies like these. I'd understand if it had hell of stunts or crazy special effects, but aside from explaining that the driving force behind creating this movie was mostly just how much fun Ferrell and Reilly had together making Talladega Nights, it's sort of a shrug. This feature feels like more of a teaser for before the movie came out than a must-watch component of the DVD if you've already watched the movie. I know I'm coming off like a hater, but too bad. Deal.
