It’s quirky. It’s life-like. It’s kinda boring in some parts, but really funny in others. It’s only83 minutes long. I would not have wanted to pay to see it…maybe a 99 cent rental if you think you really want to.
There is an adorable soundtrack behind the movie, and if you liked the “realness” of 50/50 and LIKE CRAZY, you might appreciate it in here. Other than that, the film seems to have gotten the critic’s attention and gotten some acclaim, but honestly, I just didn’t see anything mind-blowing about it.
The Official Storyline: “Dispatched from his basement room on an errand for his mother (Susan Sarandon), slacker Jeff (Jason Segel) might discover his destiny (finally) when he spends the day with his brother (Ed Helms) as he tracks his possibly adulterous wife (Judy Greer).”
The Lil Miss Movie Storyline: Jason Segel is slacker pothead living in his mother’s basement at 30, and has big ideas and hopes for his future, which he he thinks he needs to follow “signs” to discover, all while his jerk-face brother tries to find out if his toothpick wife is cheating or not. All while their mother is distracted by a “secret admirer” sitch at work. Oh, and wood glue.
JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME is in theatres March 16, 2012.
It’s rated R for for language including sexual references and some drug use (gratuitous pot smoking and f-words littered throughout) and is 1 hr. 23 min long.
So what do I think?
