Jeff Who Lives At Home

Dramedy starring Jason Segel as a pot-addled 30-year-old still living in his mum's basement. Considered a slacker by his family - mum (Susan Sarandon) and brother Pat (Ed Helms) - he occupies his time considering his role in the universe... From the Duplass brothers, directors of Cyrus.

When Jeff (Segel) goes out to perform a routine errand for his mother, he bumps into his brother Pat, spying on his possibly adulterous wife. A series of coincidences and the resurfacing of buried emotions combine throughout an eventful day, leading Jeff to maybe find the direction he's been missing.

The Duplass brothers take another step toward conventional Hollywood storytelling without sacrificing the sincere, true-to-life quality that got studios interested in the first place.

Cool cast, hip directors, but a movie that's less than the sum of both. Like its title character, Jeff is gentle, warm but a little forgettable.

You come to like Jeff and even to admire him... he turns out to be the hero of a disarmingly sincere spiritual fable.

Likable comedy that suffers a bit from indie self-consciousness.

A whimsical comedy, very whimsical.

Segel's performance is the heart of the film, his naive faith making other characters' bolder gestures believable...

There's undoubtedly comedy mileage in an irreverent sending up of the Signs/Magnolia school of everything-is-connected philosophy. Despite the calibre of the cast, the Duplass brothers mostly fail to find it.
