I related some of my initial thoughts as follows:
The movie had several hilarious moments. I'm laughing just thinking about some of them right now, but I decided I shouldn't share them, because I don't want to take away the humorous jokes. On the other hand, I felt the plot wasn't that strong, especially because I had a hard time believing the scenario of the first half of the movie. In any case, I'm not upset, since I have lower expectations when watching a comedy movie when it comes to plot. Also, the interaction between Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly creates the comedy, not why they're interacting. I guess at some point I treated the movie as a bunch of related comedy skits.

It's getting late, so I'll finish up by saying that I like Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) better. I make the comparison there, because that movie also starred John C. Reilly and the plot was somewhat similar. Only the plot in Talladega Nights was more coherent than the plot in Step Brothers.

Credits:
A little after some credits roll, it cuts to them beating up the school kids. Then credits resume. Then at the end of the credits, they're shown getting up from bed and sleepwalking.
