"The Brothers Solomon" (2007)

Two brothers who were home schooled in Alaska by their father try to grant their father's dying wish to have a grandchild.

Will Arnet played a totally unlikeable character in 'Arrested Development'. I kept waiting for him to be a jerk in this movie but he never is. The two brothers are genuinely nice and well intentioned if incredibly naive and childlike. At first I was going to say "I know people like this" these guys are total geeks with geek social skills. They say exactly what they mean and go about the world totally up front and honest. And they have no idea that other people don't do that. Unfortunately I don't just know people like that I am like that too.

Other reviewer compared it to "Night at the Roxbury" and "Dumb and Dumber". I didn't watch either of those movies because I found the ads too painful. For some reason this movie just seems nicer, not as cruel, as those movies.
