Paul Rudd has the less-than-glorified title role in this comedy carried largely by the skill of its cast.
Newly paroled, the sibling seeks shelter with each of his three sisters (Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer), invariably causing complications for them with his unaffected, relentlessly honest approach to life. Rashida Jones ("The Office") and Steve Coogan also appear. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by director Jesse Peretz; deleted and extended scenes. *** (R: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
