When their dying father (Lee Majors) wishes to meet his first grandchild before he meets his maker, the Solomon brothers (Will Arnett and Will Forte) find it's easier said than done. Raised in the female-free Arctic wilderness, the lads have no idea how to even talk to a woman, let alone convince her to have a baby. Realizing the future of their family lies in their hands, the clueless duo set out to "make a baby for Dad." Kristen Wiig co-stars in this wild and crazy comedy about two guys who'll do whatever it takes to give their father an heir.

Critics Consensus: Squandering its impressive cast with poorly-directed gags, The Brothers Solomon is a one-joke film stretched well beyond its limits.

The story makes no sense, and the two lead characters are repulsive, but I must confess I laughed...

Common Sense Says
Goofy lowbrow comedy is too crude for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that teens may well be interested in this lowbrow comedy -- despite (or, more likely, because of) its frequent jokes about bodily functions and sex, crude innuendo, and strong language (particularly variations on "f--k"). There's some mild slapstick violence (falls, wrestling, minor car collisions), as well as some awkward sight gags (a bloodless dart in the nose), and brief references to drugs (morphine) and drinking. Two dating jokes might be considered mean: Dean calls a girl "fat," and a sight-gag flashback shows the brothers with their prom dates, two older Eskimo women. An African-American character verbally challenges stereotypes but ends up physically fulfilling them, in language and menacing demeanor (he's a walking stereotype).
