3 stars (out of 4)
As a former journalist I mustn’t bury the lede (as twee journos say), so here goes: Step Brothers features the funniest fart in the history of cinema. They say acting is all in the eyes, and John C. Reilly (as Dale Doback) proves it while passing the gas that cracked me up like a loon for a good 15 minutes, and still gets random giggles a day later. I will see this movie again just for the fart. If you find that incredibly sad, you have something in common with my wife.
As a whole, Step Brothers is better than Blades of Glory, not nearly as good as Old School. But the fart is a moment of sweet virtuosity.
