Product Description

When their dying father (Lee Majors) wishes to meet his first grandchild before he meets his maker, the Solomon brothers (Will Arnett and Will Forte) find it's easier said than done. Raised in the female-free Arctic wilderness, the lads have no idea how to even talk to a woman, let alone convince her to have a baby. Realizing the future of their family lies in their hands, the clueless duo set out to "make a baby for Dad." Kristen Wiig co-stars in this wild and crazy comedy about two guys who'll do whatever it takes to give their father an heir.

Will Arnett--whose performance on the late, lamented TV show Arrested Development was sheer genius--seeks a movie vehicle that will similarly serve his unique comic flavor. His latest effort is The Brothers Solomon, a freewheeling festival of absurdity about two brothers--John (Arnett) and Dean Solomon (Will Forte, Saturday Night Live)--who were raised by their father (Lee Majors, The Six Million Dollar Man) in polar isolation. As a result, their social skills are questionable, but they make up for it with their relentlessly positive outlook. When their father falls into a coma, they decide to honor his wish to have a grandchild and set out to find mates. The escapades that follow have the shape of humor, but are not, for the most part, exactly funny, though they are often oddly compelling--or at least make you curious as to what could possibly come next. Kristen Wiig, hysterically funny in a bit part in Knocked Up, is largely wasted in a straight role as the surrogate mother the brothers end up hiring. Malin Akerman (The Heartbreak Kid) plays a helpful yet snooty neighbor; her scene in a bikini will be essential viewing for her more lust-ridden fans. Directed by Bob Odenkirk of Mr. Show fame, who directed the similarly peculiar Let's Go to Prison. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars You had me at "Odenkirk" January 3, 2008
By Janvil
Ok so like, I was a huge fan of the Ben Stiller Show and Mr. Show and SNL was never as funny as when Odenkirk was active there. So of course now I have "Let's Go to Prison" and now "The Brothers Solomon" in my collection. Ironically, for both movies I wasn't too impressed with the first time I watched each. But there's something about Odenkirk's movies that when you watch them the second time that you realize just how hilarious they are! What's up with that? Or is it just me?

Once I realized that this movie REALLY IS Dumb & Dumber part 3 the movie had me in stitches almost non-stop. Coen and Farelly brothers beware, Odenkirk is on the prowl! Rawr! :D McBride almost steals every scene hes' in in Odenkirk's flicks. From eskimo kisses to a sobbing janitor I think McBride's roles are essential for the success of both films. So far the combo of Odenkirk, Arenett and McBride has worked. I wonder what awaits next from Odenkirk? If nothing then I'm fine with that, these movies are keepers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I thought it would be. February 21, 2009
By Amber
Normally, I hate these types of comedies, finding them to be too stupid to sit through. I happened across this movie by chance earlier tonight, and something made me stop and watch it. There were a couple of times when I turned away, but I found myself turning back to it, and actually starting to care about what happened. I even found myself smiling at the end, which was unexpected! For a stupid, run-of-the-mill modern comedy, this was pretty good. It's not ever going to be on my list of favorites, but I would not be adverse to watching it again. Good for those times when I don't really want to think too hard about what I am watching, but I still want to feel good at the end of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Probably Not What You're Expecting.... December 26, 2007
Give this movie a shot. It isn't over-the-top, you won't laugh until you fart and then spill popcorn in your lap. The humor is mostly subtle, dry, honest, but at times, edgy.

At the core of this movie are two innocent, loveable and awkward brothers who would do anything to make their dying father happy. Not to mention, it doesn't hurt to have two of the funniest actors currently working in the industry as the main characters.

So while it isn't entirely "Dumb & Dumber", it is almost as enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Brothers Solomon Movie Review December 23, 2007
The unequivocal epitome of absurdity, The Brothers Solomon is equal parts stunning hilarity and eyebrow-raising ridiculousness. With a mind-bogglingly offbeat sense of "Dumb and Dumber" humor, this film introduces such sustained socially-inept insanity by its unpredictably bizarre lead characters that it is constantly difficult to predict where it's all going. Despite the berserk brothers' insensibilities, this madcap farce manages to be entertaining and different from the recent slew of R-rated comedies.

When their father lapses into a coma and Dean (Will Forte) and John (Will Arnett) Solomon learn that his only regret was not seeing a grandchild, the two brothers determine to acquire one no matter what the cost. After the romantically (and socially) inept twosome fail at wooing a mate to bear their child, they turn to other means of conception...

Initially The Brothers Solomon appears to be an even wackier and more ludicrous version of "Dumb and Dumber", with a goofy duo of misfits who lack all cognitive thought processes. Early on, the film even steals a joke from the Farrelly Brothers' comedy, which is a huge mistake considering how widely recognized Harry and Lloyd's dialogue has become. But after the initial letdown, The Brother Solomon redeems itself with a nonstop barrage of hilariously awkward slapstick and unpredictable kookiness.

Like Steve and Doug Butabi from "A Night at the Roxbury", the Solomons never let their spirits down, as if they're completely oblivious to their unwieldy social shortcomings. Their chipper attitude remains constant, even when they disagree, and it casts a bizarre sense of satisfaction straight through to the moronic conclusion.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a Tag Team! May 13, 2010
By J-Train
The great thing about this movie is that Will Forte manages to upstage Will Arnett. I really got a kick out of these characters, but especially Will Forte's character. I am a big Will Arnett fan and I was shocked that Will Forte was even funnier than he was in this movie. Watch his reactions. Listen to his lines. Just look at his expressions and there is no way you can't laugh at him. If you hate this movie, take another look. Will Forte accomplishes one of the greatest low-key comedic performances I have ever seen. This movie is not perfect. I especially didn't care the long scene with the airplane advertising which was a waste of time, but there is enough good stuff in this movie to make it a classic in my book. Again, I can't say enough good things about Will Forte in this movie. His performance alone makes this movie a winner. Will Arnett is funny too, but that's just a bonus. Will Forte steals this show.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXTREMELY FUNNY!!! September 7, 2008
This is without a doubt, one of the funniest movies I've EVER seen! I literally laughed at everything. I started to laugh 'til I cried. I almost got to a point where my face hurt from laughing so much! John and Dean Solomon are dim-witted brothers who are not so good with the ladies. When they find out that their dad might be dying, they find out that their dad wants a grandson. They try to find a woman who will have their baby. Janine will have their baby, but she will be a surrogate mom. She tells them to learn how to be good dads, so they buy a doll and pretend it's a baby. It's hilarious the way they use it! John tries to hook up with Tara, but she always turns him down. Janine has an ex-boyfriend named James who is always around, but wants to help. James is extremely funny too! Later, it seems like Janine enjoys being around John and Dean. I loved how they try to find Janine when she runs away. I love when they are at the sperm bank. I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS MOVIE! If you love comedy, I highly suggest THE BROTHERS SOLOMON!!!
