“Our Idiot Brother” Movie Review

Paul Rudd (as Ned) is really not an idiot.  He is an innocent child-like man who puts his faith in other people, hoping that the best in them will come out if given the chance.  He is honest to a fault…and he loves Willie Nelson.

Trusting a local cop who asks to buy some pot, at first Rudd does the right thing telling him to, essentially, take a hike.  But the cop puts on a sad face, and the next thing you know Rudd is walking out of jail 8 months later.  His girlfriend has a new boyfriend, and she refuses to give Willie Nelson back to him.

Ned’s life is a mess, so he relies on family…his mom (who is just like him) and his three sisters, one of whom is Zooey Deschanel.

But his honesty messes up their lives, at least for a while.

This is rated R and the f-words fly, there are some boobs, and a very uncomfortable threesome.  Not for kids.

Rudd is terrific (as is Zooey) and I loved the Willie Nelson music!

Go see it!  I liked it a lot, and will buy it on blu-ray when it comes out…it is that good.
