Our Idiot Brother poster

Posted on

My brother was an economics major at University of Chicago who is currently getting his Ph.D in mathematics, so I only have one thing to say to the poster for Our Idiot Brother: You lie! Yet, it’s still impossible to resist the image of a bearded, long-haired Paul Rudd in Crocs. The cozy/ugly shoes = immediate comedy.

This poster for the film — which follows a pothead (Rudd) who returns home and causes mischief in the lives of his sisters (played by Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, and Emily Mortimer) — very adeptly tows the line between rowdy comedy and heart-warming tale, much like the trailers for the film. But regardless of which genre the movie fits into, I’m in. See a bigger version of the poster embedded after the jump. Is there anything better than an enlarged Rudd?
