The Brothers Solomon

Theatrical Release: September 7, 2007
The Brothers Solomon


THE BROTHERS SOLOMON tells the hilarious story of Dean and John Solomon (Forte and Arnett), two good-hearted but romantically-challenged brothers. When they find out their dying father’s last wish is for a grandchild, the brothers set out to find someone to have a baby with. But after spending their formative years being home-schooled by their father in a remote arctic location, their social skills prove to be somewhat lacking and their attempts at fatherhood go hysterically and disastrously wrong.

The film also stars Chi McBride (Roll Bounce, I, Robot, The Terminal), Malin Akerman (Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle) and Kristen Wiig (“Saturday Night Live”).

Dove Review

“The Brothers Solomon” is a film about two brothers trying desperately to fulfill the dying wish of their father: to give him a grandchild. Will Forte, who also wrote this film, sparkles as Dean, the younger brother. Both brothers are on the annoying side but Forte plays Dean so that you can’t help but feel something for him in the cockles of your heart.

This film is not awarded our Dove Seal. There is language in the film and then there is the subject matter. While the brothers do not try to have a child with a woman outside of marriage through intercourse, there is extensive discussion of the in-vitro fertilization process and jokes about the reproductive cycle. Sexual innuendos are also rampant throughout this film.
