Editorial Reviews

Paul Rudd stars in this witty and highly relatable comedy about that one family member who is always just a little bit behind the curve. For sisters Miranda (Elizabeth Banks), Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), and Liz (Emily Mortimer) that person is their upbeat brother Ned, an organic farmer whose willingness to rely on honesty and trusting of humankind allows for a trouble-free existence. Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother and after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters once again come to his rescue. As Liz, Emily and Natalie each take a turn at housing Ned, their brother's unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines. But after seeing life through Ned’s optimistic perspective, his family comes to realize that maybe, Ned isn't such an idiot after all.

Customer Reviews

What you will take away from this movie is: the "idiot" brother is not really an idiot.
BettyBoop
This is the Feel really good movie of the year, Very smart written and great cast will have you laughing and caring about the family in this indie comedy.
Kippoe
The characters all felt one dimensional, maybe there were just too many people to focus on anyone in particular.

With its cast of comedy heavyweights, its rather silly title, and a marketing campaign geared in the wrong direction--"Our Idiot Brother" is a film that may certainly fail to meet the expectations of an audience looking for a rude and ribald laugh riot. And others that would be more likely to appreciate its simpler charms might be wary to sample it due to these preconceived notions. But I have to say--for my money, "Our Idiot Brother" is a refreshingly sweet family dramedy. It has such a big heart and an underlying goodness and faith in humanity that is rare to see. The movie doesn't have lofty goals or aspire to be an important viewing experience, and its lack of pretensions are appreciated. This is simply an entertaining film with a cast sharing great chemistry and gentle humor.

Paul Rudd plays the titular lead, the so-called idiot brother. Rudd, always a strong comedic presence, doesn't get enough credit for being a genuinely terrific actor with unexpected range. Here, his character is so guileless and so genuine that he opts to see only the very best in people. His honesty, innocence, and willingness to really connect with others sometimes gets him into hot water. He seems unwilling or unable to plug into the negative energy stream, and just wants to live free and love. So silly, so sweet, and so surprisingly smart--there are quite a few layers at work here. I think it's a great performance. Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, and Emily Mortimer are Rudd's trio of sisters. Each is navigating a complicated personal crisis and Rudd's return home from prison wreaks havoc on their carefully constructed lives. But is he really the problem? Or might there be a method to his madness?

Part of why I enjoyed "Our Idiot Brother" so much was that it had the potential to be a disaster.

This comedy/Drama was a delightful surprise. I thought, I might be in for either one of those over the top potty-mouth films or a slap-sticky comedy. It was neither. It was a charming look at a guy who is a bit short of common sense but with a heart of gold. He causes all kinds of calamity for his sisters but at the end of the day everyone is better off. There are laughs and tears. This is a good movie, well written and well acted.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Paul Rudd's very sweet and endearing comedy about a stoner who just likes living a happy life in our cynical and often cruel world is a welcome comedy in this recent era of gross-out blockbusters (many of which you can find Rudd in, courtest of Apatow).

Ned (Rudd) is an organic farmer who is just too nice. So nice that he readily sells marijuana to someone he KNOWS is a cop. Of course, he only accepted money from the officer because said policeman INSISTED on paying for it... Ned was just going to give it away.

That tells you the kind of person Ned is... nice to the point of stupidity.

Once he gets out of jail and on probation, he pretty much plays a game of round robin, living alternately with his three sisters who each have their own issues that Ned can't help but complicate. Miranda (Elizabeth Banks) is trying to track down a story that she could source Ned on... if only he would lie (which he won't). Natalie (Zooey Deschanel) is pregnant, normally something to celebrate if she weren't in a committed relationship with another woman (Rashida Jones), a fact which Ned can't keep to himself. And, finally, Liz (Emily Mortimer) is married to a frustrating git of a pseudo-artiste husband (played here brilliantly by Steve Coogan as the guy you love to hate) whom Ned finds out is cheating on her.

Jesse Peretz has put together a great cast that gels well in all of their roles and the movie only suffers here and there in terms of delivery, pacing and overall plotting.

I loved Katy Hahn and TJ Miller as Ned's ex and her new boyfriend respectively. It especially worked in the denouement when we finally find out Ned's fate in terms of life and love.

I went into this movie with low expectations, the title turned me off because of the plot line it implied. I was pleasantly surprised. The plot is fairly complex, the characters have good depth, its funny in a low key way, there is some drama and suspense, but best of all is how good this movie makes you feel. I don't like chick flicks or mushy movies, and this was neither of those. But the movie makes you feel warm inside and makes you want to be as good and honest to the people in your life as Paul Rudd was with the cast members. Its not only enjoyable while you are watching it, but I found myself thinking about it and smiling for days afterwards. If you're looking for something to put you in a good mood, see this movie.

I'm a huge fan of Paul Rudd but didn't really know anything about this movie before I popped it in (I like to be surprised so often times I will avoid previews and refuse to read the back description).

The movie wasn't laugh-out loud hilarious for the most part, but I found it thoroughly engrossing. I was entertained the entire movie. Paul Rudd amazes me with how incredibly adorable and loveable he manages to be in EVERY movie in completely different characters. His childishly irresponsible, carefree hippie attitude could EASILY have been frustratingly annoying but managed to be sweet and quirky instead. Some of the funniest scenes were between Paul Rudd and his hippie ex-girlfriend; "Stop the violence, man! You're making me raise my voice!"

The characters were superb, from Elizabeth Banks as the driven, high-maintenance, bossy sister, to Emily Mortimer as the sweet, mousey, loving mommy-sister, to Zooey Deschanel as the wild, carefree, experimental sister with growing up to do. All of the characters (including Paul Rudd's) manage to grow throughout the movie. The only character who was a bit vague was Paul Rudd's mother played by Shirley Knight, an actress I love and therefore wanted to see more of.

This was definitely intended as a sweet, quirky, feel-good comedy and pulled it off quite well. I would definitely recommend this movie. The movie could probably have been PG-13 in my opinion. There is probably the one 3-some scene that pushed it into R but that was definitely one of the funniest scenes of the movie and nothing "bad." The movie allows you see through Ned's (Paul Rudd) eyes; a person who deeply believes in the best in people. Because of this, almost every character is loveable and has redeeming qualities. Both men and women will enjoy this entertaining comedy!
