Storyline

Cathcart retires from the fire department and wants to live alone with his wife, which means he has to get his two sons, Quinn and Elliot, who are approaching 30, to move. They are unemployed slackers; their mom does everything for them. Cathcart takes her camping while leaving the boys a house without food, money, or electricity. Will the lads get the message, find jobs, and move out, or will they cling to life at mom and pop's at all costs? They take in boarders, who may be their salvation. Meanwhile, mom wants to come home and continue babying her sons. Can the house survive? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Pretty Funny
22 March 2011 | by rbapSee all my reviews

I had zero expectation when I started watching this movie about two slacker brothers who won't leave their parents' house. Oddly enough, it was as good as any other juvenile type comedy, and probably even better in some respects. For one, it's not just slapstick stupidity that tends to characterize Will Ferrell's movies, for example. There is a lot of underhanded humour that the two leads pull off very well throughout the course of the film.

I believe that comedy is the hardest genre because it's really hard to genuinely be funny and make people laugh. While I wasn't on the floor, it WAS funny and it entertained. I recommend it you're bored and looking for a few laughs.
