Trailer for Paul Rudd’s Our Idiot Brother

Trailer for Paul Rudd’s Our Idiot Brother
Clint

My God, how far has Paul Rudd come!? Feels like yesterday he was showing off his goatee and trying to bed semi-sister Alicia Silverstone in “Clueless”, doesn’t it? (For the record, Josh and Cher in “Clueless” weren’t blood-related but still…. ick!) I even remember those TV spots for “Halloween : The Curse of Michael Myers” and that doesn’t feel that long ago either! remember those!? (Yes, the “Halloween” that looked shite). And then there was “Romeo & Juliet”, in which he played… the guy that didn’t end up with Juliet. But somewhere between “Clueless”, “Romeo & Juliet” and that little-seen comedy gem “Overnight Delivery” (If you haven’t seen it, check it out! You Larry Drake fans will be in heaven!), Rudd transformed into an out-and-out comedy superstar… never to battle Michael Myers again. Probably. And I guess if he’s to send a thankyou card to anyone it’s Judd Apatow; Apatow cast Rudd in “Anchorman : The Legend of Ron Burgundy” and then “The 40 Year-Old Virgin” and those two films really got the ball running for ‘Funnyman’ Rudd. Since then of course he’s starred in numerous other flicks but it’s his Apatowian efforts – like “Role Models” and “Knocked Up” – that Rudd’s become best known for.

“Our Idiot Brother” looks like it could be the latest golden delicious to fall from the Apatow tree – particuarly since a couple of Apatow regulars, like Elizabeth Banks, feature in it too – only it’s not. This is actually Jesse Peretz ‘dramedy’ – and one that garnered some sizzling reviews when it premiered at Sundance earlier in the year. The film stars Rudd as a dimish but friendly young man who, after getting in trouble with the law, is passed around to each of his sisters (Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Emily Mortimer) while on a plight to fix himself. It looks quite good…. as you’ll see from the trailer :
