Did none of these folks expect the goodwill gesture of Andy Samberg playing a "regular guy" gay would be wiped out by horrific "eww my mouth tastes like the homo who kissed me, I better use Comet" gag? I gagged.

Yeah I complained about this in my review, though I went with a gay friend who found that scene unfunny but not homophobic.

i get why youd read that subtext into that scene but i thought they made it pretty clear that it was the taste of cigarettes not the homo kiss

i have to admit to a soft spot for those crappy neil labute cruel-privileged-people movies. it's pretty indefensible but, c'mon, that ending of shape of things is so lol. his career has really taken a turn for the nutty btw:

2010 Death at a Funeral

2008 Lakeview Terrace

2006 The Wicker Man

Our Idiot Brother is an enjoyable film albeit slight.

the first film he's done that's gotten decent reviews in eons

I kind of miss the early days of the Daily Show when they would get Paul Rudd as the guest any time the real guest had to drop out for whatever reason.

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."

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.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Monday, 2 June 2014 19:13 (5 months ago) Permalink

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!"

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.)

Tuomas, Tuesday, 3 June 2014 11:40 (5 months ago) Permalink

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.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Tuesday, 3 June 2014 11:56 (5 months ago) Permalink

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...

take a load off, Whiney, and and aaaand you put the load right on me (some dude), Tuesday, 3 June 2014 12:40 (5 months ago) Permalink

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

Disagree. And im not into firey solos chief. (Phil D.), Thursday, 26 June 2014 14:14 (5 months 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
