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."

two 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.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Monday, 2 June 2014 19:13 (six years ago) link

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

Robert Adam Gilmour, Monday, 2 June 2014 19:15 (six years ago) link

"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 (six years ago) link

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 (six years ago) link

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.

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

yeah in Ant-Man and the Wasp, he looked like he'd aged five years max from Clueless, which actually came out 23 years ago.

also Michelle Pfeiffer playing his would-be mother-in-law was o_O considering they've been in a rom-com playing each other's love interest.

One of the many things that is great about the Rudd video is how he (who whomever) absolutely nails the weird '90s nostalgia, which is a real thing even though I never thought it would or could be a thing (though of course it could be and is). My girls wear mom jeans.

I assumed yeet was, like, odd Pittsburgh slang, which would make it even funnier.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 17 September 2020 16:56 (one week ago) link

My 9 year-old and his friends seem to use yeet as either just a general expression of excitement or surprise, or in a more specific context of throwing something - throwing a baseball a long distance or throwing garbage at the bin across the room.
