his role as the creepy lamaze instructor on Reno 911 was pretty fantastic

Our Idiot Brother would've been great, if it hadn't had the "happy ending for everyone" Hollywood ending. It was still okay (and Rudd was indeed endearing in it), but it was no Role Models.

Tuomas as Francesca Fiore and Bruno Pontz Jones in a Kids In The Hall sketch: "They would never kill hero in American movie, ah? No. With them, it's always the happy ending. Always the football player throw the ball for the big win, ah? Yes. Always the puppy, licking the face."

2 years pass...

I saw Our Idiot Brother last night and it was pretty nice (the "slight" assessment above is in the right direction though, but I don think that's a real problem)but that end scene where they talked about the candle recycling is one of the funniest things I've seen in a comedy film in years.

Tuomas, I'd say Role Models suffered worse for the forced happy ending.

"just a couple of guys and a dog makin' candles"
"what a cliche!"

take a load off, Whiney, and and aaaand you put the load right on me (some dude), Monday, 2 June 2014 19:25 (2 months ago) Permalink

In Role Models the happy endings felt organic,because the stories culminated with them, the whole movie was about earning those happy endings. Whereas in Our Idiot Brother the happy endings felt more tacked-on, something that had to be included because (according to the cliche) no story can end on an ambiguous or open note. (I'm not talking about the candle-making thing, that was fine, but was it really necessary to introduce a new love interest for the protagonist literally in the last scene? That was totally deus ex machina.)

No, the new love interest was not necessary and it was too neat for my liking (I also seen In A World recently and it was another slightly unusual comedy that had a forced crowdpleaser end it really didn't need) but surely the line in Role Models "when I get out of jail can I play with your 9 year old son?" (can't remember the exact line) underlined in a wink to the audience how unbelievable the resolution was.

I'd imagine that all three films had some of these things imposed on them.

I mean... these were light-hearted movies full of likable actors playing likable (if flawed) characters finding themselves in mild peril to comedic effect. If you can't handle movies like that ending on an up note then I don't even know...

It isn't the up note that bothers us, it's the contrived forced events that weaken the whole thing.

got most of the quiz right, feel like he had a ruddier complexion in the older photos? he's gotten a little smoother as he's aged

Disagree. And im not into firey solos chief. (Phil D.), Thursday, 26 June 2014 14:14 (1 month ago) Permalink

also i feel like i confuse "idiot brother" w/ "wanderlust" b/c they both have paul rudd and hippies in the movie, "wanderlust" was not very good though
