Our Idiot Brother
Q: What’s the movie about?
A: A man (Paul Rudd) is so sweet and naive in his belief in the good in people that he gets himself and his three sisters into a lot of trouble. But it's also because he has a big mouth.
Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, Steve Coogan, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn, T.J. Miller, Shirley Knight, Matthew Mindler, Sterling Brown, Hugh Dancy, Janet Montgomery, Lydia Haug
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Stop! This is a very sweet character and a perfectly sweet movie, but there's nothing engaging about any of it.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: It is marketed as a broad comedy and it's not. There are still some good clever laughs, but the humor is much more subdued than you might think. It's almost British, in fact.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: Still not engaging.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: Best Movie I've Ever Told You Not to See... It's going to be more enjoyable on the small screen anyway. Wait for that.
Q: How is the Acting?
A: There are a lot of stand out performances. Paul Rudd is perfectly dumb. Elizabeth Banks is a perfectly uptight bitch, not dissimilarly to Kathryn Hahn's perfectly hippie bitch.While T.J. Miller is perfect at seeming like he's understudying for the role of the idiot brother.
Q: How is the Directing?
A: There is an energy missing from the film that keeps it from being as fun as it should be, and it seems to have something to do with the directing.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: It just doesn't feel original in any way... and you really want it to.
Q: Where can I see the trailer?
A: Our Idiot Brother Trailer
