 2. FILM: Our Idiot Brother
Jesse Peretz’s terrific ensemble comedy, which is in theaters August 26, stars Paul Rudd as a lovable pot-smoking man-child — and the bane of the existence of his three uptight sisters, played by Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, and Emily Mortimer. Deschanel is as adorable as ever as Natalie, a bisexual hipster who’s unfaithful to her loyal girlfriend Cindy, a boyish lesbian lawyer nailed by Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones.
