Our Idiot Brother

R| 1 hr. 36 min.

Plot Summary
Easygoing, dimwitted slacker Ned Rochlin (Paul Rudd) makes the biggest mistake of his so-far uninspired life when he sells some pot to a cop. Homeless and jobless upon his release from jail, Ned must prevail upon his three sisters (Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer) for help. Though Ned himself is utterly without a shred of ambition or guile, it's a different story with his sisters, who find their carefully ordered lives thrown into chaos whenever he's around.

  • Our Idiot Brother comes off as a blueprint for a smart script no one really made. Now that's what I call dumb. show more

  • Goofily funny, and silly, and in many ways follows the currents of contemporary comedy into the gulf stream of inanity. And yet Ned turns out to be a strangely moving figure, a comic foil worthy of affection, perhaps even respect. show more

  • While this hugely likable cast is, indeed, hugely likable, no one's sweating things at all. The comedy's relaxed, moony rhythms imbue it with a certain charm, but can result in a certain stop-and-start awkwardness, too. show more

    I wish I could have given this one a half a star. Horiible movie, I like some chic flicks but this one oozed with estrogen. Yuck.

    I would say this IS something you could take your kids to (13+) and that is why I didn\'t like it. I was expecting more of a raunchy Paul Rudd flick and this is not that. This reminds me more of the movie \'Grown Ups\' or \"The Dilemma\&************ more of a feel-good dramedy with a cast of actors I like from other movies, but I felt none of their roles were all that believable in this film. I saw this film with two other people and I probably liked it the most compared to what my friends thought. I sat through the whole thing, so I give this movie 2 stars.
