An average but enjoyable light-hearted comedy, with a great cast. Rudd as always is excellent.

Review: Well I went into watching this with noidea what it was about and I only heard little things about it but at therequest of a group member I rented it and I'm glad I did. The movie is funny serious and it drew me in I was planning on not really watching it but once it started I forgot what I was doing. Paul Rudd is the brother/Uncle that anyone could want or may have already I kind of feel like I'm the idiot brother In my family. But yeah you will definitely feel a connection to this movie and you wouldn't feel like it's a waste of time.
Rating: 8/10
Recommendation: Rent it Definite Rent. If you collect movies like I do it's a buy. I could see myself watching it once a year at least.

Audiences won't really like this because it isn't stupid humor or very exciting, but Rudd and his sisters are all solid in portraying a family and their many problems.

Surprisingly funny and profound, my favorite Paul Rudd performance!

Paul Rudd makes the movie worth it. Without him it's really just a very bad movie. The performances from everyone else and the directing is competent, but it just lacks anything to hold our interest outside of Ned.

Inadequately strained.

It's a fun film and all their performances are enjoyable but it's just missing some kind of impact.

O Paul Rudd está bem demais pra ser ignorado. Com boas doses de um humor peculiar, que não chega a ser uma novidade, "Maluco Beleza" vale ser visto.

Our Idiot Brother explains how the "real" world actually is and with a charming and lovable performance from Paul Rudd, it is outstanding in more ways than one.

At times it was almost if this film didn't even have a plot. Personally, it only provided me a couple laughs. There was a few clever scenes. But all and all theres not much to speak of here, and I would not recommend giving this film a watch. Unless you're going to be smoking a lot of "Willie Nelson" first.

Ned Rochlin looks for the good in every situation and in everyone, which often puts him at odds with the world around him -- especially his family. Upon being released from jail for a stupid mistake, Ned is kicked off of the organic farm he lives and works on by his ex-girlfriend Janet who also insists on keeping his beloved dog, Willie Nelson. Having nowhere else to go, he turns to his family, three ambitious sisters and an overbearing mother. Ned crashes at each of their homes, in succession, and brings honesty, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives. In other words, he wreaks havoc.

The film has a few laughs, great cast, and Paul Rudd giving a good likable performance. Sadly the plot is formulaic and it never reaches its true potential.

I could so relate to this movie on SO many levels.

It's a sweet, mildly amusing film about a happy, go-lucky guy whose kindness and honesty wreak havoc on his family and friends and how they learn to coexist.

Paul Rudd plays a charming role. But this movie got me bored and checking the time.

Our Idiot Brother is a good family film with an A-List cast being lead by none other than Paul Rudd in which he plays the lead role perfectly. Although his character Ned was lovable, full of joy, and funny at times, he was not as funny as Paul Rudd can be, and Ned should have been. With a few more comedic set pieces and one liners, this movie would have really excelled. By that I don't mean give us the Paul Rudd from Wet Hot American Summer, I actually loved the small bits of humor particular to this character such as trusting a stranger with a stack of cash, or selling a police man weed. These moments hit the mark which is why all I wish is for a few more of them.

it's more of a dramedy but it's worth watching
