Our Idiot Brother Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: 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.

Review: Paul Rudd really shines in one of the few films that has given him the opportunity to be a lead character.  I mean, this guy had an early role on FRIENDS, went on do to other great films like Knocked Up, the 40 Year Old Virgin and Forgetting Sarah Marshall...and yet I still feel like he's super underrated.  Our Idiot Brother has an amazing cast with the likes of Elizabeth Banks and Zooey Deschanel (who is hotter than ever with her "The New Girl" show on Fox).  The girls are hilarious and Rudd is charmingly sweet.  This comedy is a bit predictable and cliche at moments, but the chemistry of the actors makes it all worth while.
