Customer Review

on 19 December 2013
`Our Idiot Brother' is basically a romantic comedy, only it isn't. It sort of utilises all elements of the format which make up your usual rom-com, only the story doesn't centre around a man and a woman coming together. It's about a man who just says and does the wrong thing most of the time. Then, when he comes out of prison, he's forced upon his three sisters and he goes about - albeit accidentally - destroying their lives.

Luckily, the situations are just about plausible and there are a few good laughs to be gained from them. However, the major drawback is that none of the characters are that likable. The main character constantly says the wrong thing. Now, all of us have done that once in a while, but he manages it every time in every situation. And his sisters all seem to be completely self-absorbed and shallow, who, in some way, have created their negative situations which their brother has then exposed.

If you like any of the major actors then it's a bonus and, like I say, there are some laughs to be had. Keep your expectations low and you should get more out of it. At least it's short, so it doesn't drag on.

Probably a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
