White: There was easily a four-hour cut.

McKay: We shot a million and a half feet of film.

White: Kodak sent over champagne. There was still a week or so of filming to go.

A.O. Scott: I was in therapy some years ago. When the movie had come out, I said, “I don’t know if you’ve seen this movie Step Brothers.” And there was this hush, and then the voice from behind me kind of said, “Well, it’s a masterpiece.”

McKay: We just finished this Dick Cheney movie with Christian Bale. Christian Bale is jaw-droppingly good in it. There were several moments when we were filming where you get goose bumps. And there are some other really good actors in the movie, too, like Amy Adams. When they finish their scenes, you’re like, “Holy crap.” Someone asked me, “What are some times on set where a scene happens and just spontaneously, everyone knows it’s great?”

The big one I remember was the first take Kathryn Hahn did where she comes at Dale in that doorway and is like, “I want to roll you into a little ball and shove you up my vagina.” The first take she did of that, when I said “cut,” the whole crew spontaneously applauded. I remember Mary Steenburgen came over and gave her a hug and said congratulations.

McKay: I’ve never seen anything like it. It was such an electric, special performance. Forget that it was comedy. It really was one of the great performance moments I’ve ever seen.

There was one run we had where Dale and Brennan’s dysfunction got to such a point. … It was in the middle of the night and somehow it’s mentioned that Dr. [Robert] Doback [Dale’s physician father, played by Richard Jenkins] keeps a pistol in his safe. Dale and Brennan are in bed, and Dale is scaring Brennan. And he was doing that thing where you get all wound up at night, listening to sounds, and Dale is scaring him. And then Dale starts to get scared, and they both get really freaked out and they convince themselves that there’s an intruder downstairs. And they shake Richard Jenkins and Mary Steenburgen awake, like, “There’s an intruder in the house, and he’s armed.” And so Dr. Doback goes for the gun in the safe and Dale and Brennan light off Roman candles in the house and Dr. Doback fires a round off in the chaos. Then the police are there and they say, “There’s no one here. There’s nothing going on.” And then Dr. Doback says, “This is so fucked up. This is so unhealthy. You guys have to get out of here.” And then basically Dale and Brennan are like, “Can’t we just go to SeaWorld?”

That’s somehow the answer: “Can we not be so angry? Why is everyone so angry? Why can’t we just go and have a nice time at SeaWorld?” And Mary kind of acquiesces. And then it’s this giant trip to SeaWorld. It’s the greatest day ever. The parents both just buy into the dysfunction and have this amazing time at SeaWorld—except that Mary’s purse gets snatched. It’s all a montage, and then they’re driving home with giant grins on their faces. And then all of a sudden, Dr. Doback hits the brakes on the car and he’s just like, “What the fuck are we doing?”
