I've not stepped into a cinema for a long long time, perhaps the longest time ever since I know how to visit the cinema myself! While I still have some hopes to catch some Christmas and New Year movies, I've watched these movies at home...
Our Idiot Brother
The title tells it all, the movie talks about a brother who always create disasters because of his good intention to help people around him. Well of course, he ruined his three sisters' life indirectly and they all disowned him at one point before finally realising how important the brother is to them!
Well I love the entire idea of the movie. It is funny yet full of meaning and lessons of life. But I will have to be picky on how the movie presented the part where the sisters finally realised how important their brother is to them. To me, it was a little too rush and you know... Like you can't really feel them yet! So yea, not touching enough lar. Love the soundtrack too!
I must say it's quite a complete perfect cast too! Paul Judd as the idiot brother, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Emily Mortimer as the three sisters were quite good in their performances respectively.
It's the kinda light movie you wanna watch for relaxing purposes, although it doesn't really leaves a very huge impact in your memory...
Another comedy about two friends exchanging bodies. They used to admire and prefer each other lives, until they switched bodies... It's all about growing into a better person too through other people's life. But it is also not a fresh idea anymore, especially in comedies.
I thought the movie reached its objective of telling people a lesson of life but then in a very normal and boring way because this isn't the first time we've seen movies with such body-switching idea. I actually like Jason Bateman a lot ever since Horrible Bosses but I think both him and Ryan Reynolds weren't allow to show their real talents in the movie, which is sad...
I did enjoy the movie as a comedy but the creator could have done a better job in presenting the entire movie, maybe in a different way.
