Will Step Brothers bring down The Dark Knight?

This weekend starts the true warming trend of the summer - blockbuster comedies. This summer they seem to be everywhere, but Step Brothers, the new comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly seems to stand out from all the others because it is aimed at adults and the only action going on is these two hysterical bone heads boxing in a garage. While the movie is getting luke warm reviews all around, there is no way a comedy starring these two funny guys, directed by the ace in a hole Adam McKay and produced by my favorite Judd Apatow can not be funny or really well. But the real question is will it take down the reigning champ from last weekend. You know the one that set all those records, what was it called again, or right The Dark Knight! Step Brothers begins the transition from action to funny, but with the remainder of expected comedy hits this summer, like "Pineapple Express" and "Tropic Thunder", comedic flicks laced with action, is Step Brothers the only one with enough balls to rely on the funny? Check out the trailer below and we shall see on Monday!
