Paul Rudd is a doofus in the new trailer for Our Idiot Brother

May. 20, 2011by: George Merchan

The new comedy OUR IDIOT BROTHER (formerly MY IDIOT BROTHER), starring the always awesome Paul Rudd as the titular dimwit, premiered at the Sundance film festival earlier this year to some pretty positive word of mouth.

Now a new trailer has fallen into our midst, showcasing Rudd in that loveable schmuck mode he plays so well. Joining him is a great supporting cast that includes Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, T.J. Miller, Hugh Dancy, Adam Scott, and Steve Coogan. Does this look like something that'll sate your heart-warming comedy hunger for the summer?

OUR IDIOT BROTHER opens August 26th.

Thanks to 'Patrick' for the heads up!

Synopsis: 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 stickbeing 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. Neds best intentions produce hilariously disastrous results, bringing the family to the cusp of chaos and ultimately the brink of clarity.

The trailer was funny and Rudd looks fantastic in this.

Having Deschanel, Jones, and Banks is also the perfect trifecta.

Forgettable

Something tells me even Paul Rudd can't save this one.

And I'll never stop saying that Zooey Deschanel is one of the least talented actresses in Hollywood. If she was more "slutty hot," like Jessica Alba or Megan Fox, people would rip her abilities to no end, but since she has that "hipster indie darling," appeal people think she's good. proceed with your minuses, she sucks.

I think there will be a lot of people agreeing with you when her show "The New Girl" starts airing in the fall. She is cute, but when she plays up her cuteness, she get get quite annoying. The clips from her new show seem to demonstrate how she tends to overact quirky, relying too much on her charm. At least she can sing and write songs, as She & Him might be a better career choice.

That being stated, her sister is a far better actress than her. Emily is very good on "Bones".
