sibling rivalry [sib-ling-rahy-buhl-ree]
1. A type of competition or animosity between children, whether related by blood or not. Such competition is particularly intense between brothers and brothers, sisters and sisters, children of the same or near the same age, and between children with talents. It is an expression of the frustrations between children to compete for attention and to define themselves as being apart from their rival.
EX. In the 2008 film Step Brothers, two middle-aged men compete for control of the household like children when their parents get married. Their sibling rivalry, a rivalry built on man-child stupidity, is the amusing crux of the film and the two principle actors, Will Ferrel and John C. Reily, pull off the ridiculous film with their physical comedy, crafted delivery, and legendary chemistry.
