'Our Idiot Brother'

Director Jesse Peretz had a hard time with his career after his feature debut, "The Ex" bombed at the box office in 2006. The director admitted to the Times that he wasn't crazy how the finished film, released by Harvey Weinstein, turned out. So it was surprising that Peretz would trust his movie, starring Paul Rudd as the slacker brother to three Type-A sisters, with Weinstein again. Buyer: The Weinstein Co. Estimated sale price (not including marketing): $6-7 million Theatrical box office: $24.8 million The Weinstein Co.
