Review: Our Idiot Brother

In Our Idiot Brother, Zooey Deschanel (Elf), Elizabeth Banks (W.), and Emily Mortimer (Scream 3) star as a close-knit family of sisters whose lives are suddenly thrown into tumult by the arrival of, you guessed it, their idiot brother, played by Paul Rudd (Clueless). Of course, calamity ensues.

Here’s my review:

Predictable Family Dramedy made slightly more fun
by Paul Rudd.

And, if I could add one more thing: TJ Miller (Stainer from She’s Out Of My League) plays a fairly significant role, and is easily the funniest thing about this movie. He cracks me up. There’s a dialogue sequence between him and Paul Rudd near the end of the movie that had me rollin’.

So yeah…it was ok. Not too terribly funny…more of a heart-warming family story with a moral center than Role Models or I Love You, Man.
