New On Netflix This Week: High-Rise Invasion, The Conjuring, And Our Idiot Brother

There is another sequel in the series , which is expected to hit HBO Max on June 4. So, plenty of time to get up to speed and be ready for the upcoming release.

The 2011 a dramedy stars Paul Rudd as "a seemingly clueless idealist [who] relies on his exasperated sisters for shelter and support after his girlfriend dumps him and his dog is taken away."
