Please don't waste your money if you're looking to laugh. My fianc and I both love Paul Rudd, but this was not his best character. We left 45 minutes into the movie. Very slow, and we didn't laugh at all. Not sure if this was supposed to be a comedy or a drama.. But I was disappointed.

Our Idiot Brother review

I had very little desire to watch this based on the previews but I think Paul Rudd is super cute so I gave it a chance. I went to pass some time one afternoon and found it to be really heart felt. Good message, nothing too brain bending or genre busting but a pleasant one to watch. If it came on tv, I would watch it again.

Sweet dumb guy screws up his life, messes up his sisters' lives, and comes out OK.

I don't go to the movies often, but the premise of this one intrigued me: a latter-day hippie credulous enough to sell marijuana to a uniformed police officer is paroled from prison after this dopey move and has nowhere to go after his hippie girlfriend (Kathryn Hahn) refuses to take him back on her organic farm. So he bounces between the house of his mother (veteran actress Shirley Knight) and the homes of his three sisters: an unhappily married woman with two young kids and a philandering documentary-making husband, a scheming and ambitious young magazine journalist, and a bisexual who is cheating on her ******* girlfriend (Emily Mortimer, Elizabeth Banks, and Zooey Deschanel, respectively, with Rashida Jones as Deschanel's girlfriend and Steve Coogan as the creep husband). Being sweet and invariably honest, he manages to throw his own and all three sisters' lives into chaos. All works out well in the end, however. Highlight: T.J. Miller as a sweet and even dopier hippie.
