Quotes

Robbie: Most importantly, I... I have just got to thank one individual who is next to me the whole time I am running down that road. Doubts? Sure, I have doubts. But, there is this voice, right next to you telling you that you can do it. I, ofcourse, am taking about... god.

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.
