Mini Review - Our Idiot Brother

Our Idiot Brother (out Nov 3) features an odd assortment of characters that aren't all that funny. It's about a guy (Paul Rudd) who lives his life as somewhat of a "bum", much to the disappointment of his extended family. There are a few nice moments late in the film but it takes a long time to get going. I can understand why it's only getting a limited cinematic release. Grade: B-.
