Jacques Audiard‘s The Sisters Brothers is an utterly strange, utterly lovely postmodern Western about two outlaw brothers and the two men they’re hunting. Dreamy, surreal and balancing darkness and light in equal measure, it’s a wholly unique, somewhat perplexing experience.

Next month, you can see John C. Reilly alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the western thriller The Sisters Brothers. But there’s a different pair of brothers that fans would like to see back on the big screen.
Step Brothers, starring John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell as forty-something step brothers still living at home with their recently married parents, became a comedy hit back in 2008 with just over $100 million at the box office, but it’s found even greater life in the years since. You can’t go anywhere without hearing quotes from the movie, whether it’s “Did we just become best friends?” or “It’s the fuckin’ Catalina Wine Mixer.” And because of that, fans have wanted a sequel.
John C. Reilly isn’t quite as enthusiastic as viewers when it comes to sequels in general, but he still hopes that he doesn’t age out of the chance to make it happen with his buddy Will Ferrell and the increasingly eclectic director Adam McKay. Read More »
Laurel and Hardy, is that you? The classic Hollywood comedy duo were icons of slapstick comedy from 1927 to 1950, and it seemed like no one could replicate the magic of the legendary pair. But Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly come pretty close — at least in appearance.
Coogan and Reilly star as Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, respectively, in the upcoming biopic Stan & Ollie. And in the Stan & Ollie first look, the actors look like near-carbon copies of Laurel and Hardy, right down to Hardy’s little fringe.

If there’s one director who takes audio commentaries to a whole other level, it’s Adam McKay. The Academy Award-nominated director has a commentary that’s a musical scored by Jon Brion (Punch-Drunk Love), one set in the year 2031, and another with a series of arguments and feuds that end with Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate feeling slighted. Few directors bring this degree of imagination to their bonus features.
I can’t recommend enough doing what the director believes only .01% of the population does: listen to these tracks. At times they’re about as funny as the movies themselves, which often go almost completely undiscussed by everybody participating. Next to nothing is revealed, but you do get a crystal clear idea of the sensibility and mind behind the work. The nonstop jokes are as strange and inventive as the gags in Anchorman, The Other Guys, and the rest of the filmmaker’s work.
All four of the Adam McKay audio commentaries recommended below can’t be spoken of highly enough.
