Brother's Justice (2011)
In an attempt to shake up his career, actor Dax Shepard makes the decision to abandon comedy in pursuit of his true dream: to become an internationally-renown martial arts star. Without any formal martial arts training, or any real funding for his 'blockbuster' action movie script, Dax enlists the help of his buddies including producer Nate Tuck and actor Tom Arnold. Together, they work towards Dax's true passion while facing rejection at every turn. With maniacal conviction, Dax journeys on a bizarre path that becomes increasingly nonsensical and destructive, all at the expense and exploitation of his personal and professional relationships. BROTHER'S JUSTICE marks Dax Shepard's directorial debut, co-directed by David Palmer. The Hollywood satire also features performances by Bradley Cooper and David Koechner (ANCHORMAN), among others. -- (C) Tribeca … More

Critic Reviews for Brother's Justice
A vanity project about a vanity project, Dax Shepard's shambling mockumentary is more likable than its description suggests.
Reeks of a throwaway joke that should have been left to die; even at a mere 80 minutes, this halfhearted Tinseltown satire still feels padded.
It's an easy watch that nonetheless consistently feels like a grazing blow rather than a knockout.
Like an overlong episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm with none of the wit and twice the irritation.
Better to revisit such memorable Hollywood satires as "The Big Picture" or "For Your Consideration" before indulging Shepard's uninspired whimsy.
Has considerable heart, pluck and amiable, ambling chemistry, but no well-defined angle driving it, so all the satirical underpinnings feel flat and undercooked, unattached to a more grounded reality.
as any film school student will tell you, usually in hindsight, you need a script.
