Check Out The Trailer For 'Our Idiot Brother', Idiot

So much idiot in less than two minutes. Like indie comedy trailers? Well then Happy Easter to you, good buddy! Here's the first trailer for Our Idiot Brother, which used to be called My Idiot Brother. They must have decided using the plural pronoun played better in Peoria or something. The movie has Paul Rudd as the titular character, along with Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer and Rashida Jones as the "Our." It's pretty funny too, particularly the opening scene between Rudd and a police officer. Here's the official plot synopsis, which I found inside a chocolate egg:
"Ned Rochlin (Rudd) looks for the good in every situation and in everyone, which often puts him at odds with the world around him – especially his family.  Upon being released from jail for a stupid mistake, Ned is kicked off of the organic farm he lives and works on by his ex-girlfriend Janet who also insists on keeping his beloved dog, Willie Nelson.  Having nowhere else to go, he turns to his family, three ambitious sisters (Banks, Deschanel, Mortimer) and an overbearing mother.  Ned crashes at each of their homes, in succession, and brings honesty, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives.  In other words, he wreaks havoc."
Can't wait until Willie Nelson gets his own CGI spin-off starring James Marsden. It can be called Our Idiot Willie Nelson Dog and it'll be great.

New ‘Our Idiot Brother’ Trailer Crawling With Hot Sisters

You'd have to be an idiot not to notice. [post-album postid="9564" item="1"]The new trailer for Our Idiot Brother is crawling with hot ladies. Rashida Jones wears glasses (therefore hot), Elizabeth Banks plays a bitch (therefore hot), and Zooey Deschanel plays a slut (therefore hot). Emily Mortimer and Janet Montgomery ain't no slouches either. In addition to Rudd's attractive sisters, you can also oogle more of his idiotic antics. Like taking money out of his pocket on the subway or making sure his parole officer knows he's high. And, I can't be certain, but I think he fed a dog chocolate. That dog is going to get chocolate-wasted. Literally.


Bill Murray, Zooey Deschanel, And Bruce Willis Get Together To 'Rock The Kasbah'

Whatever the hell that means. It's hard to tell what kind of film Rock the Kasbah is going to be from its trailer. But that probably won't stop you from seeing the likes of Bill Murray sing Deep Purple to a group of Afghan residents. Wouldn't you agree? The premise of the film revolves around a manager (Murray) taking his singer (Deschanel) to do a USO show in Afghanistan, when she leaves him without a wallet or passport. He wanders around Afghanistan, as US music managers so often due, until he finds a girl that needs to get to Kabul to sing. It's wacky, it's probably heartfelt, and it even has Danny McBride.

To be clear, we have nothing but respect for our readers, but we all know there are a few idiots among them. In case you're not caught up, and for some reason don't want to (like if you don't have thirty-five or so hours to dedicate to zombie television), you are in luck. We're here to do the heavy lifting and run through what you've missed so that you're primed and ready to go by Sunday's season four premiere on AMC. And in case you really meet the definition of "idiot," and not just in the casual iTunes for Dummies fashion, you should know that a video of this nature is pretty much nothing but spoilers. Consider our ass covered.
