Film Review: Step Brothers
9:39 PM — Will Ferrell's place as one of Hollywood's favourite comedians is, these days, pretty much secure. He may well have made a fair few duds – Bewitched and Kicking and Screaming (both 2005) spring to mind – but he's also the man responsible for one of the funniest movies of recent years, 2004's Anchorman. He has been so prolifically hard-working that he's cropped up in everything from the first two Austin Powers movies to a Woody Allen film, the animated kids' movie Curious George to the film version of the stage version of The Producers. Thanks to his “Frat Pack” credentials he's also had cameos in the likes of Zoolander, Wedding Crashers and Starsky & Hutch to boot – not to mention the entertaining short skits he's been producing for the internet.
