Our Idiot Brother Trailer: Paul Rudd Is Dumb and Impressively Bearded


Most of the chatter about Our Idiot Brother so far has centered around the movie's buzz, and successful pickup, at Sundance, and the big bushy beard Paul Rudd — who plays a preternaturally laid-back organic farmer with four uptight sisters (Emily Mortimer, Elizabeth Banks, Rashida Jones, and Zooey Deschanel) — reluctantly had to grow for the role. And, with the trailer for the flick now out, that's still basically where we're at on the information front: commendably, the footage shown here sets up the scenario — Rudd living with his mom and pissing off his sisters after being busted for selling weed to a uniformed police officer — without then running through the entire (presumed) redemption/newfound-acceptance arc. The cast is great, Rudd's charming as always, and at one point a small child is lightly physically injured in a comical fashion. Count us in!
