Lite’s Review Room – Weekend Movies: ‘Our Idiot Brother’ & ‘Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark’
It’s time again to jump into Lite’s Review Room see what will be hitting the theaters this weekend and what is worth buying $6 Whoppers for. This week we take a look at an off-beat comedy with Paul Rudd and a thrilling, very frightening horror film starring Katie Holmes.
Our Idiot Brother
First up one of our favorite actors, who’s just been blowing comedies out of the water for years as a secondary character but finally started getting starring roles in the last four or five years, Paul Rudd stars in “Our Idiot Brother” with Zooey Deschanel, Rashida Jones and Elizabeth Banks.
Ned (Rudd) is the free living off beat brother of Miranda (Banks) Natalie (Deschanel) & Liz (Emily Mortimer). Ned just got out of jail and is staying with his sisters to help get back on his feet. His free living, honest, laid back attitude seems to screw everything up for him and those he loves around him.
We all have one in our family, the black sheep, the one who just never gets it right, and this movie is about those relationships between siblings. Don’t bring think this is a good movie to bring the kids to, so they can learn to love each other though, it’s rated ‘R’ and hits on some topics that aren’t great for the young ones. But as a date night movie or a friends night out we think it is near the top of the list this week.
