Product Description

Starring Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, TV’s How I Met Your Mother), Ed Helms (Hangover I & II ) and Academy Award®-winner Susan Sarandon, Jeff Who Lives at Home is the story of one man’s hilarious search for the meaning of life. As slacker Jeff stumbles towards enlightenment, he uncovers answers to his nagging family’s problems. Jeff has no idea where he’s going but when he finally gets there, he might just find out what it’s all about in this “gem of a movie that is funny, tender and ultimately moving.”*

 *Mark Adams, SCREENDAILY

Jason Segel (The Muppets, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) brings his slacker nerd charm to Jeff, the title character of Jeff Who Lives at Home. A wrong number and an infomercial conspire to send Jeff, who may smoke a bit too much pot, on a quest for signs from the universe that will lead him to his destiny--which might involve helping his obnoxious brother Pat (Ed Helms, Cedar Rapids) discover his long-suffering wife Linda (Judy Greer, The Descendants) in an adulterous affair. Jeff is perfectly cast; Segel, Helms, and Greer all excel at creating comic characters who may not be likable, yet you care about them anyway (Susan Sarandon hits the same note as Jeff and Pat's frustrated mother). Writer-director team Mark and Jay Duplass began their career in the "mumblecore" movement (a term they would probably reject), an ultra-low-budget idiom that's been accused of being anti-dramatic. But at its best, mumblecore finds the drama in the ordinary aspects of life. Jeff isn't mumblecore, but for most of its length, the comedy walks that balance between the everyday and the eventful--not unlike the balance that Jeff seeks to find in the world. The ending succumbs to the need to wrap things up too tidily, but it's forgivable. This is a modest but humane film; after it's over, it may linger surprisingly in your memory, tuning you in to the possibilities around you. --Bret Fetzer

This was another one of those movies that I missed when it went into theaters, and it was also a film I really wanted to see. I'm a huge fan of Jason Segel's (Jeff) work, so naturally I wanted to see this. However, it was nothing like I expected.

I thought we'd follow Jeff through a point of his life that covered a week, a month, or any set period of time for that matter, but that's not really what happens. We follow Jeff through one crazy day in his life. Which isn't bad, but I feel they could've done more with the character had they expanded the amount of time the movie covered in his life. On top of that the movie is really short, running just over one hour and twenty minutes.

Jeff is a 30 year old stoner who currently lives in his mothers basement. He's recently been infatuated with the movie Signs, and is taking everything that happens to be some sort of sign. Jeff's main goal is to find some sort of greater purpose for himself. He feels lost in today's world, as if there's something he's supposed to find out about himself. During the movie he is helping his brother Pat (Ed Helms) who is also going through a rough patch. Only difference is Pat has a wife, a job, and a life. Even though the movie didn't play out as I expected, I still fell in love with it. Mainly with Jeff. I feel I resemble Jeff a lot in the sense that I too am searching for what my destiny is in life, and until I do I just live life day to day. You see everyone else around you progressing in their lives, and you just feel stuck.

I don't know who did the music to the film, but it was wonderful. It definitely served its purpose in setting the perfect mood for the film. It's very lighthearted and carefree, I hope I can find the score somewhere.

When I read the description and reviews of this movie, I was expecting a somewhat average movie - one worth watching once, and then probably forgetting shortly afterward. What a surprise!
The movie was engaging from start to finish. I loved the realism, the "presence" of the scenes, the slow but deliberate unfolding of the plot, and the strong acting, especially that of Ed Helms.
By the time the movie was almost over, I realized it was special and that I needed to purchase a copy of it. Then, as an added bonus, the ending was completely unexpected - and incredibly powerful.
I rented this, but I will definitely be purchasing a copy of it very soon. This is one to watch over and over.

I loved this movie. Its subtlety reveals so much about human relationships and interconnectedness. If you are struggling to find meaning for your life, this movie is right for you. Plus it has a good star cast.

I am a huge fan of Jason Siegel and his work, but I think this movie proves he can act. I think this is his possible transition from comedy into developing into a serious actor. The script is fantastic and all of the acting by other actors are great. I would give this movie an A+, too bad I never heard of it until it was released on video/on demand through Amazon.

A very Enjoyable comedy about family bonding, relationships and more. The acting performance is Superb. Jason Segel and Susan Sarandon at their best! The story has funny moments and heartfelt moments. But, there's never a dull moment from start to finish, inspiring and touching. Highly Recommended!

The most unusual and surprising movie I've seen recently is this story of two brothers and ther mom.

Jeff is a 30-year-old bong smoker still living in the basement. Brother Pat selfishly buys a Jaguar when his wife wanted to get a house. They fight and soon after, he sees her going into a restaurant with another man. Pat enlists Jeff's aid in spying on his wife, but the stoner is only so helpful, for he has his own obsession: the name Kevin.

Meanwhile, their lonely mom is getting flirty IM's on the job from an anonymous co-worker.

Dont wanna give away too much of the plot. Love the way it transitions from dumb comedy, to introspection, to heroic actioner, and finally in the last moment, mysticism. Can't recommend this feel good film too highly!

Written and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass. (Two guys also obsessed with someone named Kevin.)

Jeff, Who Lives at Home isn't the type of comedy you'd expect from the likes of Jason Segel and Ed Helms. While the film's humor is similar to what you'd find in an episode of "The Office" (which Helms co-stars in) in the sense that everything is very dry and isn't necessarily side-splitting but chuckle worthy, both Segel and Helms manage to be slightly different from the roles they've played in the past.

Jason Segel is Jeff; a thirty year old pothead that still lives in his mom's basement. Helms is Pat; Jeff's slightly more responsible older brother with marital problems. These summaries don't sound all that different from Segel's role in Knocked Up or Helm's role in The Hangover, but there's more to their characters than what's first let on. Jeff is incredibly depressed and has this hopeless sense of coincidences being signs of a bigger purpose while Pat is a total prick. He does whatever he wants to do without listening to anyone else and has a way of making anyone he's talking to feel like an idiot in the span of a few lines of dialogue.

The other element is Susan Surandon who portrays the mother of Jeff and Pat. She's a hopeless romantic who hates what her children have grown into. Linda's secret admirer storyline is the first part of Jeff, Who Lives at Home that feels genuine. The conclusion of that secondary storyline is when the movie ditches its attempt at R-rated independent humor and becomes more emotional and real.

It's not that Jeff, Who Lives at Home doesn't have its humorous moments. The humor is at its peak when Segel and Helms share screen time. Pat digging in the trash outside of the restaurant as Jeff advises him not to and their conversation outside of the hotel room are two of the funniest scenes in the movie, but it feels like familiar ground.
