Film: Our Idiot Brother

Year: 2011

Cast: Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Nick Sullivan, Zooey Deschanel, Francesca Papalia, Emily Mortimer, Bob Stephenson, Peter Hermann, Adam Scott, Kelly Briter, Rashida Jones, Steve Coogan, Kathryn Hahn, T.J. Miller, Shirley Knight.

Plot: Ned [Paul Rudd] lived a happy life growing organic vegetables on a farm with his hippie girlfriend and his dog named Willie Nelson, but an unadvised incident with marijuana at a farmer’s market lands him in jail. When he gets out of jail, he is off to live with his sisters. While Ned is still happy, his sisters are much less so after he manages to screw up one marriage, one job opportunity, one budding relationship and one domestic partnership. He sees those problems as breakdowns in communication, but his sisters see him as an idiot

Review: This is a real feel good film, the irony is in the title as it’s not Ned who is the idiot but the people around him. In places it feels like a bit of a chick flick, but then its not it’s just a rambling feel good movie that is hilarious. I knew nothing about this film at all so didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised, Ned [Rudd] seems to bumble through his life making one mistake after another but its only when you get halfway through the film that you realise its everyone else that’s messing up and he’s just saying it as it is.

This film had me laughing from the off, however there is one very disturbing part and I think it may scarred me for life………

It was seeing Steve Coogan’s Testicles dangling between his legs when he bends over!!!!!! Watch it and? Well just watch it and you’ll see

9/10 real good, feel good film

Year: 2010

Cast:  Richard Dreyfuss, Ving Rhames, Elsabeth Shue, Christopher Lloyd, Eli Rith, Jerry O’Connell, Steven R. McQueen, Jessica Szohr, Keely Brook, Riley Steele, Adam Scott, Ricardo Chavira, Dina Meyer, Paul Scheer, Brooklynn Proulx

Plot: After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents.

Review: So was I supposed to like this film? No probably not, but I did kind of. It set in the sun during summer break and the world of topless and scantily clad women, including the luvly Kelly Brook. The acting is 3rd or maybe even 4th rate but that adds to its appeal, this is a funny film with action pretty much most of the way through, fun cameo’s from Richard Dreyfuss and Christopher Lloyd [playing his usual mad professor role!]

There are a couple of Jumpy bits and a few funny ones, look out for the floating silicone implants after a piranha attack and the floating cock!

The main Jumpy bit is when the scientist asks where the parent Piranha’s are, had me laughing like a drain.

So was it worth watching, yes of course it is, its trashy its not even a z list movie but well worth a watch, better than some of the big box office films [Battle for los Angeles!!!!!!!!]

8/10 Give it a watch, better than watching paint dry. [ be warned there is plenty of fake blood and floating limbs, FAF]
