'Our Idiot Brother' poster: Paul Rudd's got flower power


My brother was an economics major at University of Chicago who is currently getting his Ph.D in mathematics, so I only have one thing to say to the poster for Our Idiot Brother: You lie! Yet, it’s still impossible to resist the image of a bearded, long-haired Paul Rudd in Crocs. The cozy/ugly shoes = immediate comedy.

This poster for the film — which follows a pothead (Rudd) who returns home and causes mischief in the lives of his sisters (played by Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, and Emily Mortimer) — very adeptly tows the line between rowdy comedy and heart-warming tale, much like the trailers for the film. But regardless of which genre the movie fits into, I’m in. See a bigger version of the poster embedded after the jump. Is there anything better than an enlarged Rudd?

    I’d trade my idiot brother for Paul Rudd any day.

    • Agree

      As long as we aren’t related by blood, it’s ok, right?

  • Anthony

    Ha! Could he be any more non-threatening?

    I love Paul Rudd! It’s funny that Elizabeth Banks is his sister in this movie, but his girlfriend in Role Models.

      Yes, the quasi-incestuous pairings of today’s comedy mainstays is funny. He was Rashida Jones’s boyfriend in I LOVE YOU, MAN, and she’s in here as well.

    And his make-out buddy in Wet Hot American Summer

    Come for the Rudd, stay for the Banks-Jones-Deschanel-Mortimer harem of hilarious adorableness. Works for me.

    Definitely waitin on this one..Paul Rudd is the man..

      Yeah, I’m glad his career has taken off. He deserves success. He was good in CLUELESS and other things and then he sort of trailed off for a while. It’s hard to believe that around the late ’90s and early ’00s, save for the occasional film like WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER and Saturday afternoon celebrity poker, he seemed headed for obscurity.
