Comedic actor Dax Shepard wants to change genres: with friend and producer Nate Tuck, he concocts a concept for an action film featuring martial arts. They drop in on Ashton Kutcher to see if he'll co-star, ask Jon Favreau to direct, and seek advice from Tom Arnold (because he was in "True Lies"). The road to a green light is rough, full of stops and cul-de-sacs. Along the way there's a front-yard wrestling match with Bradley Cooper and David Koechner, back stories on other Shepard/Tuck ventures, and a rupture in a life-long friendship. Can Dax get his kung-fu movie made in spite of rejection? Written by <>

If Dax would have just studied up a bit more on mockumentaries, this could have been comedy gold!
18 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was supposed to be filmed as a mockumentary, Dax Shepard has actually been filming sequences since 2006 in order make this movie, which is all about him trying to get this movie (Brother's Justice) made in Hollywood. Some of it works, some of it don't, let me tell you why.

Dax Shepard comes up with a brilliant (or so he thinks) movie idea about two brothers. One gets kidnapped by a biker gang who also happens to deal or is on (I'm not sure which) crystal meth and the other brother comes to his rescue. Once he's infiltrated the biker gang and gained their trust, he saves his brother's life and must fight down the mountain. I guess the biker gang likes to drive their motorcycles up into the mountains. I dunno, don't ask. He calls his best friend (and producing partner) Nate Tuck to help him with the project. Nate agrees and they embark on a semi-hilarious journey through Hollywood's red tape. When his agent refuses, he realizes that he's got to "package" the movie with some big-time names, so he stops by a few of his friends' houses (Ashton Kutcher, Tom Arnold, Jon Favreau) and asks for help.

There are a lot of funny moments in Brother's Justice. The only problem is, it would have been a hell of a lot funnier if we didn't already know that this is just one big joke. From the poster and the trailer to the bad acting by Nate Tuck, we've already been let in on the hoax. Why would you spoil something that you've been working on for four years? Dax is convincing enough but his partner-in-crime is certainly not. There are a few moments when Dax does take the bit a little too far (crying, yelling). It makes him come off as a spoiled Hollywood brat or makes him look like he's struggling with bi-polar disorder, your choice. Even the celebs who do cameos are great at keeping up the appearance that Dax is serious about doing this. If Nate's acting doesn't clue you in, there's also those "fake trailers" that Dax and Nate make in order to sell their idea to Hollywood. Their goal is to film a few short scenes and show the Hollywood people so they can visualize Dax in the role that's being pitched. They are beyond ridiculous. At least try to make them look real. As they are, they're goofy, silly and it makes Dax look like some newcomer on YouTube, not a seasoned actor.

There's still plenty of funny to be found, though. It's just too bad that Dax didn't study up on some mockumentaries like Best in Show or For Your Consideration directed by Christopher Guest. What is now just a mediocre attempt at mocking could have been one of the greats, like This is Spinal Tap. Be sure to sit through all the credits for the bloopers and an additional scene with Seth Green that is easily one of the best scenes in the movie. More reviews at Final Grade: B-
