Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Saw it. Love it.
10 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Brother's Justice at the Paramount theater for the Austin Film Festival and loved it.

The film, shot documentary style, follows Dax Shepard as he tries to make the leap from being a comedic actor to becoming an international martial arts action star a'la Chuck Norris. It's an 80 minute, deliciously awkward leap for our delusional hero. As he pitches his idea for his break-out film BROTHER'S JUSTICE to the industry types that surround him, he systematically gets knocked down by his agent, his lawyer, and his A-list connections (very funny cameos by Ashton Kutcher and Jon Favreau).

But Dax is a weirdly likable, egomaniacal machine that won't be stopped. With the help of his "stand by your man" producer, Nate Tuck and his unlikely co-star for BROTHER'S JUSTICE, an equally delusional Tom Arnold, we watch Dax go to extreme lengths to make his action star rise. Public appearances go badly...really badly, ribs are cracked, bromances are broken.

There are some guffaw-inducing cameos by Bradley Cooper and one of my all time favorite scene-stealers, David Koechner, and Tom Arnold hasn't been this funny or neurotic since True Lies.

Overall it feels like the kind of movie that will get funnier with multiple viewings. There are so many quotable one-liners and I can see it having a cult following over time. I really hope it gets a theatrical release.

See it if you like: a) funny b) weird c) junk jiggling close-ups in speeding European hot rods d) funny, weird, junk jiggling close-ups in speeding European hot rods
