Movie Meme Day 10 - A movie you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving

For the most part, I wouldn't say I'm a fan of Will Ferrell's movies.  I don't go out of my way to see them.  Often I'll catch them on TV or someone will have it on DVD at some point.  So when an old boyfriend wanted to see Step Brothers in the theater, I indulged him.  He didn't last, but I still LOVE this movie.  Ferrell and John. C Reilly play the adult sons of newly married Mary Steenburgen and Richard Jenkins.  They are both inept enough at life on their own that they can barely hold jobs and of course hate each other when their parents get married.  However, they find out they're much more similar than they originally thought, and start behaving like seven-year-olds, hanging out and doing all kinds of things like "bunking" their queen sized beds.  When the beds collapse and John C. Reilly runs around thinking he killed Ferrell, it's hysterical.  When they put on their Chewbacca masks and hang out in the tree house looking at porn it's side-splitting.  I honestly didn't think I would enjoy this at all, and I love it, every single time. 

PS - They're wearing tuxedos in this photo because they were told to dress up for job interviews.

Step Brother is hilarious, so re-watchable and quotable. Love the movie as well :)

Castor - EXCELLENT. I wasn't sure there were other who loved it like I do.
