Excerpt: Now, I have a feeling that a lot of people are expecting a laugh our loud comedy, when this is more in the vein of Little Miss Sunshine and other indies. All the actors perform well, and it never gets dull. I appreciated the seriousness of the subject matter, and the direction is quite memorable. The specs on the bluray are very above average video, alright audio, and a slim supplemental package. A nice bluray for my collection.
Excerpt: When I first saw the trailer for Our Idiot Brother Advertised, I was semi interested due to the cast. Honestly, the cast is great. Everyone has a very solid character and performance. I could not really relate too much to any of the characters because the stupidity was so over the top. There were no surprises and many situations were very cliché. However when it comes to story, Our Idiot Brother is very lacking and just plain dumb.
Summary: Paul Rudd is at his comic best. Ned's a likeable guy who just loves life and humanity. His honesty and naivety takes the family on a journey through it's darkest secrets. And through the journey all get a better understanding of themselves. The humour at times can be subtle and deadpan so the movie won't score well typically on American ratings sites. This is an immensely funny movie and worth seeing with friends, family and whoever else you can find for a great night.
