Our Idiot Brother

BluRay Authority
26 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I first remember seeing a very young Paul Rudd in “Clueless”, the mid-90′s Alicia Silverstone vehicle which was supposed to make her a superstar. I won’t devote any more of this review to Alicia Silverstone, but will rather focus on Paul Rudd. Rudd’s career has been somewhat steady since the days of “Clueless”, he’s been somewhat of a background character with some minor roles in films like “Wet Hot American Summer” and even a stint on TV’s “Friends.

Our Idiot Brother (Blu-ray)

14 December 2011
  • Summary: Our Idiot Brother simply was mis-promoted. It is not a quirky, laugh-out-loud comedy as we’ve come to expect from most Paul Rudd movies. However, it is an effective dramedy. You will find yourself smiling and sometimes even moved by the family dynamics and Rudd’s layered performance. Keep in mind, this is no Being There . Overall Our Idiot Brother is just a light, sweet film that draws you in while it’s on, but you will likely forget about as soon as it ends.

Our Idiot Brother (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
7 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Over the last few years, Paul Rudd has gone from being a supporting character actor to one of cinema's funniest comedians, featured in a slew of Judd Apatow flicks ( Knocked Up , The 40-Year-Old Virgin ) and even headlining his own movies ( Role Models , I Love You, Man ). Rudd is a welcome presence, with movie star good looks and a fine sense of comedic timing, which is the only thing that makes Our Idiot Brother mildly bearable.

  • Conclusion: Though it didn't do much to assert his star power, Our Idiot Brother does reinforce the talents of Paul Rudd and with more dramatic credibility than many of his recent mainstream films. This appealing redemption tale will be too crass for some and not broad enough for others, but everyone else should find it occupying a comfortable region of smart, thoughtful comedy. The Blu-ray is a fairly basic affair, sufficient but not exceptional both technically and supplementally.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: 'Our Idiot Brother' is a sweet, funny, and surprisingly insightful comedy that offers a refreshingly optimistic outlook. Though some elements are a bit predictable and generic, the talented ensemble, led by a charming performance from Paul Rudd, more than make up for any small narrative shortcomings. Video and audio quality are both good, bolstering the modest and upbeat tone. Supplements are a bit slim but offer some decent production trivia.

Our Idiot Brother Review

DoBlu
26 November 2011
  • Excerpt: You can’t blame someone for calling this one My Idiot Brother . It creates a mindset and a tone to put people in the seats, but it’s clearly misguided. That brother is Ned (Paul Rudd), a Jesus-looking type with a heart of gold and the trust of a 10-year old. Sure, selling pot to a fully uniformed cop may seem idiotic, but it’s the intent that creates the character.

Our Idiot Brother Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
17 November 2011
  • Summary: He's family . Well, the title really doesn't pull any punches, does it? Our Idiot Brother . It really is that simple, most of the time, but it's not often that mean-spirited. Director Jesse Peretz's Our Idiot Brother is indeed a pretty simple story about a quasi-hippie dude who makes life a living hell for his three sisters -- though through no malicious intent on his part -- but of course the movie isn't content to sit on its laurels and simply watch the mayhem unfold...

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: Paul Rudd's character Ned in Our Idiot Brother is the kind of guileless, selfless soul we all imagine we could be in our better moments, happy to help others and live as peacefully as possible. His sisters, on the other hand, are the selves we know we actually are-- selfish, misguided, intolerant and often downright mean.
