Potential, but just OK.

Adam Scott stands out in the movie as the blind brother. He plays jerk real well. Perfectly made it hard to feel sorry for him. Making it easy for us to feel sorry for Nick Knoll's character, who is the protagonist.

Knolls plays a man who has a one night stand with the girl of his dreams, only for her to become the object of his blind brother's affections when she sees him as a charity case.

It's a crazy film about having an older brother who seems to be better at everything than you are (Except in this case, he can't see as well).

The filmmakers tried to make a very quiet comedy that sneaks up on you, but it does not effect me as well as others like it. They're parts were the movie makes the blindness part of the joke was definitely funny without demeaning the handicap (as far as I...see). As a matter of fact, the movie attempts to make you see how blind people are people (and jerks) too, and they did a good job of that as well.

My Blind Brother, is what it is and it has lots of fun moments, but not the best comedy on the block.

funny people

Robbie (Adam Scott) is a blind athlete, beloved by all, and an SOB to his brother Bill (Nick Kroll). Bill feels both bitter about his treatment and guilty about being responsible for the blindness. Bill falls for Rose (Jenny Slate) who also feels guilty about causing her boyfriend's death. They hook up but Rose can't commit. She decides to be a helper and takes on Robbie. She also takes him as his boyfriend before realizing that he's Bill's brother. Francie (Zoe Kazan) is Rose's roommate.

These are funny people. There are some funny scenes. It's an interesting premise but the flaws in these characters make it less funny than it ought to be. Ultimately, it leads an incident that is almost too dark to be funny. These characters need some changes to improve their relationships. I actually love the banter between Jenny Slate and Zoe Kazan which makes their breakdown harder to take. I like the general premise but it just needs some changes.

It lacked more laughs...

I must admit that I had initially expected a bit more from "My Blind Brother", given the synopsis of the movie. So it was a little bit disappointing that the movie didn't fully deliver up to what I had expected it to.

The story in "My Blind Brother" is about the rivalry of two brothers; blind Robbie (played by Adam Scott) and Bill (played by Nick Kroll) whom both happen to fall in love with same woman Rose (played by Jenny Slate).

While there certainly were some good and funny moments throughout the course of the movie, I just felt that there was something missing from the movie to add that special ingredient to it. And it felt like most of the scenes weren't really fully utilized to the extend of what they could have been.

The story told in the movie was adequate, and it had potential to be much more than it actually turned out to be at the hands of director Sophie Goodhart.

The acting in "My Blind Brother" was alright, and the two lead actors did a good job in carrying the movie.

"My Blind Brother" lacked a certain key element of comedy that would have me in laughs. I was merely smiling or chuckling at best at some of the scenes throughout the movie. And that was also a disappointing factor to the movie, because I had expected more comedy from it.

All in all, then "My Blind Brother" scores a mediocre five out of ten stars from me, as it didn't really live up to what I had expected, and it didn't really bring anything unique or particularly memorable to the comedy genre.
