‘Our Idiot Brother’ Blu-ray and DVD Debut November 29th

Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today the Blu-ray and DVD release of the "outrageous" (David Walters, Details) comedy, Our Idiot Brother, from the producers behind Little Miss Sunshine. Starring Paul Rudd (I Love You, Man) in the title role, Our Idiot Brother is a comedy about an idealist who barges into the lives of his three sisters, played by Elizabeth Banks (W.), Zooey Deschanel ((500) Days of Summer) and Emily Mortimer (City Island), along with Rashida Jones (TV's The Office), and funnyman Steve Coogan (Tropic Thunder).

Paul Rudd stars in this witty and highly relatable comedy, Our Idiot Brother, about that one family member who is always just a little bit behind the curve. For sisters Miranda (Elizabeth Banks), Natalie ({PEpPKwuqub1Bsx||Zooey Deschanel)) and Liz (Emily Mortimer), that person is their upbeat brother Ned, an organic farmer, whose willingness to trust humankind allows for an oddly trouble-free existence. Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother, and after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters must once again come to his rescue. As Miranda, Natalie and Liz each take turns at housing Ned, their brother's unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines. But after seeing life through Ned's optimistic perspective, his family comes to realize that maybe Ned isn't such an idiot after all.
