The Brothers Solomon is a comedy film released on September 7, 2007, starring Will Arnett and Will Forte.
Dean (Will Forte) and John Solomon (Will Arnett) have always been sheltered by their father, who has done his best to nurture them and cater to their every whim following their mother’s early death. They’re good boys, but since they’ve been isolated from the general population, they’ve never developed the necessary social skills that are required to exist in a civilization. With their father (Lee Majors) on his deathbed, the two learn that his dying wish is to have a grandchild. Neither one is equipped with the necessary knowledge and ability to even talk to a girl for more than a few minutes, much less to have a child with her (involuntary celibacy). Still, both are going to go out into the world and attempt to make their father’s final wish come true by finding someone that will be willing to have a baby with one of them.
