Here is the first trailer for a great new comedy coming out called Our Idiot Brother which has a amazing cast of actors that includes Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, Steve Coogan and a few others.
I had a chance to see this movie up at the Sundance Film Festival this year where it was shown under the title My Idot Brother. I loved this movie and thought it was absolutely hilarious. It actually ended up being one of my favorite films at the festival. I just remember laughing a whole hell of a lot while watching it, Rudd was freakin' awesome in it.
Rudd plays Ned, whose character is set up extremely well in the first scene of the movie, which is in the trailer below. This opening scene set up the whole tone of the film. It shows you the type of person that Ned is; a very trusting individual that wants to see the best intentions of people. After being in Jail for eight months Ned is released into the world again to find that his girlfriend of three years dumped him for another dude. So without a place to go he ends up spending a lot of time with his sisters and actually lives with each of them throughout the movie. As the story is told, his good natured naive honesty ends up highlighting his sisters personal faults and problems, and they end up hating him for it; blaming him for all the problems that now plague their lives. Of course through a series of hilarious events and experiences, his family realizes he’s actually helped them become better people and overcome their issues. Turns out he’s not such a bad guy after all. To read my full review of the film Click Here.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Despite looking for the good in every situation and the best in every person, Ned always seems to find himself holding the short end of the stick—being conned into selling pot to a uniformed cop, being dumped by his girlfriend, and worse yet, losing custody of his beloved dog, Willie Nelson. When he turns to family, he is passed from sister to sister while he gets back on his feet. Ned’s best intentions produce hilariously disastrous results, bringing the family to the cusp of chaos and ultimately the brink of clarity.
The movie is set to be released on November 25th 2011, and I suggest you watch it when it comes out. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
