A second new trailer has been released for the new Paul Rudd comedy Our Idiot Brother, which has a pretty awesome cast of actors that include Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, and Steve Coogan.
I saw the movie up at the Sundance Film Festival this year, and I thought it was a great heartfelt hilarious film. I honestly think this is one of the best role that Rudd has ever had.
Rudd plays Ned, who after being in Jail for eight months for selling pot to a police officer is released into the world again to find that his girlfriend of three years dumped him for another guy. So without a place to go he ends up spending a lot of time at with his three sisters, living with each one of them throughout the course of the film. As the story is told, his good natured naive honesty ends up highlighting his sisters personality faults and problems, of course they end up hating him for it; blaming him for all the problems that now plague their lives. Of course through a series of funny events and experiences, his family finally realizes that 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 Sundance review of the film Click Here.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Every family has one: the sibling who is always just a little bit behind the curve when it comes to getting his life together. For sisters Liz, Miranda and Natalie, that person is their perennially upbeat brother Ned, an erstwhile organic farmer whose willingness to rely on the honesty of mankind is a less-than-optimum strategy for a tidy, trouble-free existence. Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother and so, after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters once again come to his rescue. As Liz, Miranda 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 as each of their lives begins to unravel, Ned's family comes to realize that maybe, in believing and trusting the people around him; Ned isn't such an idiot after all.
The movie is set to be released on November 25th 2011, and I suggest you check it out. Watch the new trailer and tell us what you think!
