Our Idiot Brother Trailer: Paul Rudd And His Righteous Long Hair Go On The Road

When Our Idiot Brother premiered at Sundance in January-- under the title My Idiot Brother-- it was the star-filled comedy that absolutely everybody at the festival had to catch. Well, everybody except me-- I somehow showed up too late to find a seat in a 3,000 theater auditorium on a Sunday morning. So I'll be anticipating this summer comedy along with everybody else, and even more so now that I've gotten a look at the first trailer, which popped up online over the weekend and you can watch embedded below.

The supporting cast is undeniable-- Rashida Jones, Emily Mortimer, Elizabeth Banks, Kathryn Hahn and Hugh Dancy all find their way in there-- but the reason we're all dying to see it, of course, is Paul Rudd, with his mane of matted hair and terrible tank tops and all. Rudd has a knack for becoming the best part of pretty much any movie he's in, and it's nice to see that Our Idiot Brother relieves him from having to be a scene stealer, simply putting him at the center of the movie where he has always belonged. Our Idiot Brother, directed by Important Things With Demetri Martin alum Jesse Peretz, hits theaters on August 26.
