On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all…married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), who clearly don’t want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), wouldn’t know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case – Marissa’s a retired secret agent.

OUR IDIOT BROTHER
Release: August 26, 2011 – Wide



Directed by: Jesse Peretz
Cast: Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Steve Coogan, Hugh Dancy

Every family has one: the sibling who is always just a little bit behind the curve when it comes to getting his life together. For sisters Liz (Emily Mortimer), Miranda (Elizabeth Banks) and Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), that person is their perennially upbeat brother Ned (Paul Rudd), an erstwhile organic farmer whose willingness to rely on the honesty of mankind is a less-than-optimum strategy for a tidy, trouble-free existence. Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother and so, after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters once again come to his rescue. As Liz, Miranda and Natalie each take a turn at housing Ned, their brother’s unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines. But as each of their lives begins to unravel, Ned’s family comes to realize that maybe, in believing and trusting the people around him; Ned isn’t such an idiot after all.

How Do You Know Blooper Reel

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

Here is a blooper reel from Columbia Pictures’ HOW DO YOU KNOW. The film hits theaters on December 17th, 2010.

Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd, and Jack Nicholson star in How Do You Know, the new comedy written and directed by James L. Brooks that takes a contemporary and romantic look at the question, “How do you know?”

Lisa (Witherspoon) is a woman whose athletic ability is the defining passion of her life, having been her focus since early childhood. When she is cut from her team, everything she has ever known is suddenly taken from her. Not knowing what to do, she stumbles toward regular life. In this mode, she begins a fling with Matty (Wilson), a major league baseball pitcher, a self-centered ladies man – a narcissist with a code of honor.

George (Rudd) is a straight-arrow businessman whose complicated relationship with his father, Charles (Nicholson), takes a turn when George is accused of a financial crime, even though he’s done nothing wrong. Though he may be headed to jail, George’s honesty, integrity, and unceasing optimism may be his only path to keeping his sanity.

Before Lisa’s relationship with Matty takes root, she meets George for a first date on the worst evening of each of their lives: she has just been cut, and he has just been served. When everything else seems to be falling apart, they will discover what it means to have something wonderful happen.

MY IDIOT BROTHER to Premiere At The Sundance Film Festival

Friday, December 3rd, 2010



Jesse Peretz’s new film “My Idiot Brother” will premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. The film has been selected for the Premiere section of the festival. Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Steve Coogan, Hugh Dancy, Rashida Jones, Kathryn Hahn, Shirley Knight, TJ Miller, Janet Montgomery and Adam Scott star in the film, a comedy about family and the sacrifices it takes to deal with them. Based on a screenplay by Evgenia Peretz and David Schisgall, “My Idiot Brother” is directed by Jesse Peretz, and produced by Anthony Bregman for Likely Story and Peter Saraf and Marc Turtletaub for Big Beach. Big Beach financed the production. Jesse Peretz, Caroline Jaczko, Stefanie Azpiazu, John Hodges and Aleen Keshishian are Executive Producers.
Ned (Rudd) is an idealist. His three sisters (Banks, Deschanel, Mortimer) are ambitious. His mother (Knight) is overbearing. Ned crashes at each of their homes, in succession, and brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives. In other words, he wreaks havoc.

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 selling pot, Ned turns to his oldest sister, Liz (Mortimer), a high-strung mother of two for a place to stay and a job helping to take care of her 7 year old son River, but his version of what’s fun for kids doesn’t fit with his sister’s carefully crafted child- rearing program. After upsetting Liz’s life, Ned relies on middle sister Miranda (Banks), a career-driven journalist, for a place to crash. He quickly makes a mess of Liz’s big break and shakes up her carefully compartmentalized love life. He is then forced upon his youngest sister, Natalie (Deschanel), whose wild-child past threatens to ruin her happy existence.

Banks, Deschanel and Mortimer co-star as the three sisters whose lives are hilariously disrupted by their well-meaning brother (Rudd). Banks portrays Miranda, the career-driven single sister who is about to get her big break in journalism after spending years writing about accessories at a fashion magazine; Deschanel portrays Natalie, the artistic hipster, a bisexual who’s flakiness and lies are getting in the way of moving forward with her caring, responsible girlfriend Cindy (Jones), who is looking to move the relationship towards a more committed place and; Mortimer portrays Liz, the Park Slope mom who’s too worried about having the perfect life and children to notice that her marriage is falling apart. Coogan portrays Dylan Byng, a self-righteous documentary filmmaker, married to Liz (Mortimer). The two live a supposedly idyllic life in Park Slope, Brooklyn with their young children, River and Echo. Scott portrays Jeremy, Miranda’s(Banks) upstairs neighbor. Dancy portrays Christian, a pretentious painter friend of Natalie’s (Deschanel) who tries to help Ned grow as a person by showing him another path; Hahn plays Janet, Ned’s (Rudd) ex-girlfriend who, out of spite, is keeping him from reuniting with his beloved dog Willie Nelson; Knight portrays Ilene, Ned’s overbearing and over-nurturing mother, who would be overjoyed if her son moved back home and; Montgomery portrays Arabella, a controversial British aristocrat that Miranda (Banks) is profiling for her magazine, a piece that could provide Miranda with the big break she has looking for.

Dinner For Schmucks Movie Review

Friday, July 30th, 2010





So let’s see here, we have all three Austin Powers movies, Mystery, Alaska, Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers to name a few of Director Jay Roach’s comedic masterpieces. His reputation precedes him, no doubt. And yet, when I first heard of this film and its title, I was immediately turned off. The previews didn’t help much either. Honestly, the movie seemed to be a complete waste of time. It looked stupid with a narrow storyline revolving around this particular dinner. Mr. Roach, I apologize. How could I have doubted you? Boy was I wrong. The first thing you need to know is to not be misled by the simplicity of the title of the movie. It is a lot more than what you’d expect…… READ FULL REVIEW
