Rudd lov­able loser

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Eguide Dvds -

ANY film with Amer­i­can com­edy ac­tor Paul Rudd in it is go­ing to charm you in some way – his on­screen pres­ence and in­volve­ment just dic­tates it.

And teamed with an ap­peal­ing fe­male sup­port­ing cast and a lik­able sce­nario, well that’s just gravy.

Rudd stars as the free- spir­ited, semilov­able loser in a fam­ily of sis­ters who is all about the love and be­lieves in the good­ness of hu­man­ity and do­ing the right thing – you know, a hip­pie.

But af­ter get­ting out of jail for a mi­nor drug in­ci­dent, he’s dumped by his longterm girl­friend and left home­less.

He ends up be­ing bounced from sis­ter to sis­ter – all of whom are bat­tling through their own is­sues. His hon­est ways and kind- heart­ed­ness back­fire, caus­ing fric­tion in their per­sonal lives.

While the thin script doesn’t use the cast fully, what they do get they make work well and the film’s breezy na­ture and Rudd’s laid- back charms en­sure plenty of smiles.
