Story


Despite looking for the good in every situation and the best in every person, Ned always seems to find himself holding the short end of the stick-being conned into selling pot to a uniformed cop, being dumped by his girlfriend, and worse yet, losing custody of his beloved dog, Willie Nelson. When he turns to family, he is passed from sister to sister while he gets back on his feet. Ned's best intentions produce hilariously disastrous results, bringing the family to the cusp of chaos and ultimately the brink of clarity.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..while too overtly modest to be a comedy game-changer, "Our Idiot Brother" is almost sufficiently feisty and entertaining to render the term "a Sundance movie" something less than dread-inspiring..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..the rest of the cast is fine, actually, but Rudd spares nothing in making Ned a lovable loser, with the emphasis on "loser"..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..what was once specific and sparkling is now more blandly glossy and sweet..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
