Another Screen Lesbian Who Sleeps With Men
Spoiler alert! Spoiler alert!
Don't read this if you don't want a plot twist of a new movie ruined for you.
Anyway, Our Idiot Brother is an amiable comedy with Paul Rudd as a sincere mess-up who turns to his wacky sisters to bail him out of trouble.
One of them (played by Zooey Deschanel) is a lesbian with a girlfriend (Rashida Jones).
And just like Julianne Moore's character in The Kids Are All Right, Zooey strays and sleeps with a man.
It's explained that she's a lifelong flirt and validates herself through sex, blah blah blah, so she libidinally wanders and has a hetero encounter.
It would be different if the character was set up as bi, but as with Julianne's, this is a lesbo who just can't help herself.
And the straight males applaud!
