Review:
Ned (Paul Rudd) is a sweet guy but entirely too trusting. He sells pot to an on-duty uniformed cop, but gets out of jail early on good behavior, looking for a place to live. He comes home to his girlfriend, who has already moved on and is keeping his best friend, Willie Nelson, the dog. Ned is forced to go back home and live with his three sisters: Liz (Emily Mortimer), Miranda (Elizabeth Banks), and Nat (Zooey Deschanel). Ned is not the only person in the family who has problems, because Liz’ marriage is in danger, Miranda is on the cusp of having a breakthrough article for Vanity Fair, and Nat is beginning to feel estranged from her girlfriend Cindy (Rashida Jones). Ned bounces from sister to sister, Jesse Peretz directs Ned’s misadventures as one eruption after another.
My Idiot Brother is a light film, there isn’t really that much of a plot as much as it’s seeing how Ned behaves and invariably messes things up in various situations.
