A comedy about that one family member who is always just a little bit behind the curve. For sisters Liz, Miranda, and Natalie, that person is their upbeat brother Ned, an organic farmer whose willingness to rely on the honesty and trust of humankind allows for a trouble-free existence. Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother and after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters once again come to his rescue.

What would you do for Willie Nelson? A solidly entertaining flick about the black sheep of the family, OUR IDIOT BROTHER uplifts and makes you reexamine how you evaluate true worth in this world. Three sisters, with vastly different personalities, welcome back their brother into their life when he returns home from a short prison stay. It's not a flawless film, but it's a decent watch. I'd definitely recommend OUR IDIOT BROTHER.

This was a surprisingly good movie. Paul Rudd actually keeps it together and doesn’t go over the top with being vulgar (actually no vulgarity). Good cast and script, with some good laughs make it a worthwhile movie.

I love the message of this movie and hate that paul rudd character is described as retarded for his honesty. This coming from a person thats a terrible liar and painfully honest (I pray everyday to be more tactful) the chaos he caused in his sisters lives was due to their own narcissistic, blindly deceitful life styles. He didnt rock the boat he just took their blinders off so they could see themselves for who they really are. And a couple of laughs thrown in for good measure werent half bad.

The writing(ie:the laughs) were ok, but 2 of the stars go to Paul Rudd.

Became tired of the sexual innuendo. After awhile the jokes weren't funny, didn't keep my attention.

A wonderful cast uplift this super light take on a black sheep family member. I wasn't quite sure what this movie was trying to say. In the end it's painless and often enjoyable.

To my surprise, this movie actually had some funny moments. Ironically, these moments had little to do with the interaction between brother and sisters.

This movie tries really hard and it fails in execution in that the “try” is really obvious. There’s no subtlety or effortlessness in this production. Everything is clunky and overbearing. I liked bits of the movie. Oddly, I like most of the actors in their own right, but I loathed most of them in this movie. Kathryn Hahn was the sole outstanding talent in this production. That woman can play any part convincingly. She was as great in this tiny part as she was in her hilarious role on Parks and Rec.
