Paul Rudd is great as the straight man, and he’s got pretty killer comic timing, too. His latest is “Our Idiot Brother”, where Rudd plays the idiot brother in question, who isn’t really an idiot, he’s just too earnest for his own good. Or maybe he is an idiot. I dunno, the mildly amusing (but not laugh-out-loud funny) trailer doesn’t really answer that question, but I suspect he’ll end up being pretty endearing in the end. Trailer and a whole stack of pics for the film below.
An idealist crashes at the homes of his three ambitious sisters, wreaking havoc while spreading truth and happiness.
Starring Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, Janet Montgomery and directed by Jesse Peretz, who last directed by Jason Bateman-Zach Braff comedy “The Ex”.
