In “Our Idiot Brother,” Paul Rudd plays Ned Rochlin, an idealistic man who intrudes and wreaks havoc on the lives of his three sisters: Liz (Emily Mortimer), Miranda (Elizabeth Banks) and Natalie (Zooey Deschanel).
The film includes such a great cast and I can only imagine the dynamics that they all had while filming.
Paul Rudd and Zooey Deschanel are personal favorites of mine, and I love seeing Rudd as a principal character.
Below, we have four clips from the film.
In this first clip, we see Ned get arrested for “selling” marijuana to an officer, which is the beginning of all his problems.
After getting out of jail for good behavior, Ned has nowhere to go and no one to turn to other than his family. In this clip, we see Ned caught in an argument between his sister Miranda and her “boyfriend” Jeremy (Adam Scott), because each had confided in him their thoughts on their relationship and each other.
Rashida Jones is Cindy, the partner of Ned’s sister Natalie (Deschanel). In this clip, Ned seeks Cindy’s legal advice on the best way to get his dog, Willie Nelson, back from his ex-girlfriend. This clip is entertaining, because we see Ned with a hint of low self esteem and Cindy has to remind him that “he’s the man.” Rather than going through the legal system, though, Cindy advises him that they steal the dog back together when the time arises.
Miranda and Natalie try to console their sister Liz who is crying about her husband, Dylan (Steve Coogan), and tell her that he is the jerk in the situation. Perhaps they don’t go about it in the best possible way to make her feel better, though.
“Our Idiot Brother” is now out in theaters. Be ready for some good laughs from this wonderful cast.
