Our Idiot Brother

This tenderhearted comedy stars Paul Rudd as a clueless whirlwind who touches down in the lives of his three sisters, trailing chaos and marijuana smoke behind him. Emily Mortimer, Zooey Deschanel and Elizabeth Banks play the exasperated siblings, but Rudd’s peacenik hippie slacker steals the show.


In theaters August 26, 2011.

NICOLE RIVELLI / THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY

50/50

Seth Rogen (Knocked Up) ditches the frat-boy high jinks but not his humor to stand by a friend (Inception’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who is battling cancer. Anjelica Huston plays Gordon-Levitt’s anxious mother, and Up in the Air’s Anna Kendrick (with him, left) is his inexperienced therapist in this bittersweet romance.

 

In theaters September 30, 2011.
