Our Idiot Brother Trailer

"I can't just kick him out, he's family!" Unexpectedly this Easter Sunday, the first seemingly official trailer for Our Idiot Brother has popped up on YouTube via Vlicious. Formerly known as My Idiot Brother when it premiere at Sundance earlier this year, it's an indie comedy starring Paul Rudd as a brother who returns home to live with his three sisters, played by Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Emily Mortimer. This seems more like a teaser trailer, but it looks fun, I'm sad I missed seeing it, but our own Ethan seemed to enjoy it. The cast also includes Steve Coogan, Hugh Dancy and Rashida Jones. Catch it below right away!

Watch the first official trailer for Jesse Peretz's Our Idiot Brother, embedded via YouTube:

A comedy centered on an idealist (Rudd) who barges into the lives of his three sisters when he gets busted.

Our Idiot Brother was directed by filmmaker Jesse Peretz, former member of The Lemonheads and director of a few films previously like First Love Last Rites, The Château, and The Ex, as well as work on "Important Things with Demetri Martin". The screenplay was written by newcomers David Schisgall & Evgenia Peretz. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and was acquired by The Weinstein Company. They're bringing Our Idiot Brother to theaters starting August 26th this summer. Looks good, doesn't it?

I think she's playing a lesbian in this, fingers crossed that she and Deschanel have a...moment.

Xerxexx on Apr 24, 2011


It's not just the sheer volume of comments you make on here, but ones like these really make me feel sorry for you, Xerxexx. OMG I HOPE THEY TOUCH BOOBIES.

ninjaplease on Apr 25, 2011


wow, way to be a dick for little to no reason. Jones and Deschanel are both very beautiful women and I have big fans of both ladies for a long time, I'm more excited that the two are in a film together, and if they kiss then guess what, the dude in me will be smiling. Also what's is the problem with me posting on FS? Do you own the site? Are you the moderator? I fed the troll, and I feel dirty for doing it. Also in regards to me hoping they kiss, well I'll just say this: Deschanel and Jones making out!?!? HELL YEAH!

I know this is a movie website, but anyone see Justified? It's the best show on TV. Visit

ben chu on Apr 25, 2011


Yeah, it must be really cool of the show to pay you all that money to post stuff like that on entertainment message boards.

Pulled video dot com... bummer

Youtube is knackered nearly as bad as everyone else these days, seen they'll probably start charging to view trailers and music then it'll just be like normal tv. I think that is maybe one of the signs of the apocalypse possibly.

You said it..

I'm still puzzled by Majors pulling their trailers off external sites such as YT. Unless there are embargos for marketing purposes, why on Earth should they remove ADS for their own movies? Bah.
