They'd Disown "Our Idiot Brother", So Win Him on Blu-ray


There are some actors that are almost impossible not to like and Paul Rudd is one of them. Even when he was something of an overly sarcastic, uptight ass in Role Models, you were rooting for him to get Elizabeth Banks to fall back in love with him. In Wet Hot American Summer you hated him for being a jerk, but loved it when he tossed campers who asked too many questions out of his car (after letting their buddy drown as he made out with Elizabeth Banks). Or how about when he was "slappin' da bass" in I Love You, Man or singing "Oh the weather outside is weather" as Kunu, the Keanu-ish surf instructor in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Is it possible to hate Paul Rudd?

Yes, but you have to be Elizabeth Banks (she's fickle) or Zooey Deschanel in Our Idiot Brother. And even then you're really only annoyed or exasperated from time to time.They want to kick him out of their home, so we'll let you take him in, on Blu-ray. To find out how, just keep reading.

For sisters Miranda (Elizabeth Banks), Natalie (Zooey Deschanel) and Liz (Emily Mortimer), that person is their upbeat brother Ned, an organic farmer, whose willingness to trust humankind allows for an oddly trouble-free existence.  Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother, and after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters must once again come to his rescue.  As Miranda, Natalie and Liz each take turns at housing Ned, their brother's unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines.  But after seeing life through Ned’s optimistic perspective, his family comes to realize that maybe Ned isn't such an idiot after all.

He's a TV junkie with a penchant for watching the same movie six times in one sitting. If you really want to understand him you need to have grown up on Sgt. Bilko, Alien, Jurassic Park and Five Easy Pieces playing in an infinite loop. Recommend something to him - he'll watch it.
