Any movie about a guy whose thoughts travel directly from his brain to his big mouth is fine by us -- and just such a comedy premiered in Hollywood on Tuesday night: ‘Our Idiot Brother,’ starring Paul Rudd, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer and Elizabeth Banks.

Rudd, Deschanel and Banks were joined on the red carpet by castmates Rashida Jones, Kathryn Hahn, Bob Stephenson, Matthew Mindler and Janet Montgomery and director Jesse Peretz outside the ArcLight Hollywood.
