Three Preview Clips From Our Idiot Brother
Posted 08.05.11 by Ryan
So far this summer, the biggest surprise has been the success of nearly every R-Rated comedy that has been released. The Hangover Part II kicked things off in May, earning $527 million worldwide, while Bridesmaids, Bad Teacher and Horrible Bosses have all gone on to earn (so far) $168 million, $247 million and $114 million, respectively, worldwide. That gives a wide berth of hope for The Weinstein Company's upcoming Our Idiot Brother.
Starring Paul Rudd as a hippie farmer so naive that he sells marijuana to an uniformed police officer, Our Idiot Brother's story takes off after Rudd moves back in with his family. A second trailer for the movie debuted in June that showed some of the movie's heart, while the three, recently released preview clips are trying to show off the movie's humor.
Yahoo! released the first preview clip late last week, and shows the scene where Rudd gets busted selling marijuana to a police officer.
The second preview clip comes from Movieweb and shows Rudd's sister Liz (Emily Mortimer) being consoled by his two other sisters (Elizabeth Banks and Zooey Deschanel) about her marital issues which may have stemmed from her too-casual attitude with her appearance.
In the third preview clip, Rudd gets a pep talk from Cindy (Rashida Jones).
Opening August 26, Our Idiot Brother was directed by Jesse Peretz (The Ex) and written by Evegenia Peretz and David Schisgall. Steve Coogan and Hugh Dancy co-star.
