Family horror in The Brothers Solomon

A comedy ought, surely, to be entertaining, contain a couple of chuckles, keep us amused?

The Brothers Solomon

Director: Bob Odenkirk

Cast: Will Arnett, Will Forte, Lee Majors, Kristen Wiig

Cert: 15

A comedy ought, surely, to be entertaining, contain a couple of chuckles, keep us amused?

Seems not, judging from this dismal affair in which losers Forte and Arnett play a couple of brothers who have promised pop (Majors) that he’ll have a grandchild before he pops off. Thing is, the boys aren’t exactly babe magnets which means they have to resort to paying Wiig to become a surrogate mum.

But it’s all a waste of time – one is pushed to include talent – in a film with little merit.

Star Rating: 1/5
