This movie is NOT a comedy. There are a few funny scenes and a couple of jokes...but it is, by and large, a family drama about relationships. Don't expect to be laughing at this movie.

Nowadays, a fair assortment of films are unfairly but understandably billed as something other than what they portray in advertisements, often times due to limited temporal restraints, companies or advertisers purposefully front-loading the product, and/or a questionable choice of editing cuts and mixes for a movie trailer. From the trailer(s) I previewed, Our Idiot Brother was slated to be, above all else, a laugh riot of a comedy. This is not the case. What this film does portray is an optimistic swelling of the heart goodness driven by a very talented cast led by a particularly charming Paul Rudd. The film does a sensational job focusing on the character-driven plot and the resulting situations that Ned (Rudd) and his three sisters (Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer) find themselves in after he is thrust back into their lives. The only major drawback to this production is a minor one; the film momentarily loses its believability a couple sequences before the ending and would otherwise risk its cohesion if it weren't for the bighearted, if not overly sudden and slightly unjustified, fondness radiating the characters in those scenes. Ultimately, the positives far outweigh the negatives in this movie, even if the actual comedy was set to mild. The cliche of cliches "feel-good movie of the year" comes to mind when describing this film and I wish I could say otherwise artistically - if only it wasn't due to my grinning like an idiot from beginning to end and coming away with a fresh sense of infectious optimism.
