Written and directed by acclaimed filmmakers, Jay and Mark Duplass, "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" is a funny and heartwarming comedy-drama film for the independent film era. Featuring an all-star cast, the movie stars Jason Segel as the title character, who seems to be inspired by the movie, "Signs". He believes that everything happens for a reason, and he sees and follows signs in his real life, that will allow him to achieve greatness. He actually believes that fate can appear out of nowhere, and thinks it can affect his life. His brother Pat, played by Ed Helms, is <more>
experiencing a rocky marriage between his wife, played by Judy Greer, whom he believes is having an affair. The mother of these two people, Susan Sarandon, is then trying to figure out the "secret admirer" that has been giving her messages all day at her workplace. As these story lines fall into place, fate comes along and connects all these stories into one masterful motion picture. "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" is one of the best movies of the year. This is a self-aware, wonderful, and entertaining piece of storytelling. Jason Segel delivers one of the best performances of his career, and yet he never disappoints in any movie he's in. His character feels so realistic and likable, and you can easily feel sympathy for the character. This is the performance that absolutely shows how great an actor Jason Segel is. Also, Ed Helms actually delivers a memorable performance as Jeff's brother, not to mention that he also shares a great bond between him and Segel, and it felt like that they're actual brothers. Judy Greer and Susan Sarandon round up the supporting cast, providing excellent performances to the movie respectively, Greer as Pat's desperate wife, and Sarandon as a lost mother in search of fate. Directors Jay and Mark Duplass do a rather perfect job in capturing the viewer's attention, while at the same time, taking them on a journey through the real world. The writing is so believable, and it creates an authentic and creative value to the movie, and it makes the film more entertaining to watch. This movie makes you grow and feel sympathy for the characters, and it creates a realistic portrait of everyday life. By the way, did I mention that I was actually crying in the end?

This is when every single detail makes sense, the characters' problems are inter-connected, and the story then follows a unique path. From start to finish, "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" is nothing but pure greatness.

This is a beautiful, entertaining, realistic, and inspirational motion picture. This is also one of the year's best! "Jeff, Who Lives at Home", in my review, "remarkably authentic, and beautifully entertaining".

One of them films that sits with you for a while... (by docorock-2)
This is one of those films that pleasantly catches you surprise after viewing the trailers. "Jeff Who Lives at Home" outdoes its title and promoted content. The cast, script, photography, direction and even the music score are surely bound to sweep up awards this year.The film also provides a great vehicle for Jason Segel and Ed Helms as they both succeed in taking on their best roles yet. It's always refreshing to see comedic actors assume roles of more "serious" substances as they have in "Jeff". Good going', guys. Susan Sarandon is brilliant as ever <more>
and looks pretty amazing as well .As the title has gone into video on-demand and DVD status, we're sure to see it resurface again come Academy Awards time.
Jeff, who lives in all our homes (by SteveMierzejewski)
Everybody has a quirky movie that they, and few other people or critics, like. It just might be that a movie simply comes along at the right point in our lives and interlocks with events in it. I certainly have a number of movies among my favorites that fit into this category, and I have a feeling that Jeff, Who lives at Home might have been admitted to it.Although it is billed as a comedy, and there are certainly comic elements to it, there is a more serious component that underlies it and gives it some depth. Jason Segel plays a slacker who, at the age of 30, has few prospects and living <more>
at home at 30 seems to be the modern stereotype of a loser . Jeff clings to the idea that some 'sign' will appear to show him the way. In fact, he is viewed as nothing but a loser by his mother, brother, and just about everyone else. When someone mistakenly calls his number asking for Kevin, Jeff, seeing this as the sign he's been waiting for, begins his search for his role in the universe, brushing aside all ridicule in the process.I like movies that show how small, apparently insignificant, choices can lead to life changing events. I also like movies in which a character is redeemed by adhering to principles that everyone else thinks are insane. In its own subtle way, the movie questions many of the basic premises that underlie modern society. Yeah, I know, maybe I'm reading too much into this, but, I suppose, that's why we all like certain movies that others don't.You're not going to get a better guy to play a slacker-loser than Segel. The other actors hold up their roles well. I admit that I expected little of this movie, but I found it engaging right from the opening scene. Give it a chance and I foolishly believe you will not be disappointed
It is "the best day in the history of the whole world" – a quote pulled from brothers and main characters Jeff Jason Segel and Pat's Ed Helms deceased father in a dream. And it just so happens to be the one day in the life of Jeff in Paramount Pictures "Jeff Who Lives at Home" who reconnects with his family on a human level on the same day.Jeff is a character whom his family consisting of his mother Sharon, Susan Sarandon and brother Pat passes off as an underachiever to the extreme. Jeff lives in his mother's basement where the majority of his days are <more>
spent eating, smoking weed, and watching infomercials like the "incredible vitamin" and consistently searching for a sign to something greater to his seemingly detached existence. Jeff becomes obsessed for his signs of something greater after watching the alien invasion film "Signs" starring Mel Gibson, Rory Culkin, and Abigail Breslin.When Jeff gets an arbitrary sign through a phone call, it puts his world into an unexplainable focus to reaching his destiny while fighting-off the negative reactions from his brother and mother. The end result is a new view of Jeff as someone who is fearless, and open to seeing the world as it really is and not just as a spectator passing through it.The signs may hold coincidence in Jeff's life, but for many they are always there. Just few are able to see them. "Jeff Who Lives at Home" is a meaningful story about what happens when you open yourself up to the unexpected and what you might gain by putting yourself in a vulnerable position. All too much is needlessly lost due to fear of consequences and what others might think. This life is your own and it IS what you make of it is the underlying message of the film."Jeff Who Lives at Home" is written and directed by brothers Jay and Mark Duplass. Their past films include shorts and a documentary called "Kevin" . During a press conference, the duo talked about their unique way of making this film. They said that they fully lit each scene before the actors stepped onto the set. After that, the actors were free to improvise and play-out the scenes with each other. Mark stated that there were "no rehearsals on the film. We don't believe in the rehearsal process in this instance because you might lose something that you don't get on film ." Mark also said that once the camera is rolling, they don't like to stop because "you lose the moment".The movie was filmed in New Orleans, but the story takes place in Baton Rouge. Jeff's bravery rubs off on Sharon and Pat. Directors said that Jeff is a character that really sacrificed a lot by not getting a regular 9 to 5 job and getting married. "He is holding out for that grander that he knows he is meant for" said Duplass. This is something that is admirable and most people secretly wish that they could do according to film makers."Jeff Who Lives at Home" opens in limited theaters on Friday, March 16, 2012.www.HollywoodJunket.com
First of all let me just say that Jason Segel is an amazing and versatile actor...i was already his fan from the sitcom 'How i met your mother'..He is the main reason i watched this movie..and man what a great choice it was..The movie follows Jeff and his quest to find his destiny by following signs...It outlines the strength of a family through light humor and great acting....how it can make u change the way u view things..All in all..its a movie that leaves u feeling happy and content in a way that only certain movies can....i recommend it to people who enjoy movies like 'we <more>
Don't let the title scare you away, 'Jeff, Who lives At Home' is a deep character study about three unhappy people and the meaningless existences they each inhabit.One such person is Pat Ed Helms , a man stuck in a roller coaster of a relationship with his wife, Linda Judy Greer . Pat has recently purchased any man's dream car, a brand new Porsche. Judy doesn't share in his delight for his new automobile, which only distances them even more. When Pat suspects Linda of having an affair, it leads him on a inept detective mysterious, where most of the films humor draws <more>
on.Susan Sarandon plays Sharon, the mother of Pat. A widower, Sharon is very lonely and loans for someone to connect with. When a "secret admirer" begins sending her flirty messages, Sharon is delightfully surprised someone is still interested in her despite her age. It's up to Sharon to uncover this mystery person's identity.The last chapter, the title character, is played by Jason Segal. By far the best part of the movie, Jeff is a slacker in his 30's with no real aim in life. After seeing the movie 'Signs' and having someone with the wrong number call him and ask for a Kevin, he believes it to be a sign. The rest of his arc delves into him following after all things tied to "Kevin," and the strange paths it takes him.A common misconception I can see being falling into is that this will be a broad, raunchy comedy, like the ones Ed Helm and Jason Segal have headlined in their career. If you go into this film expecting that, you'll be disappointed. This is a thinking man's movie, with smart humor and likable characters sprinkled in. With your time.
Jeff, Who Lives at Home starts out by referencing a film from 10 years ago. The main character, Jeff, speaks about his love for the movie Signs. That movie was all about signs being sent to us and that we must use those signs as guides for living our lives. This becomes Jeff's mantra for how he lives his life. These signs haven't been getting him anywhere as of yet though. He's a grown-up slacker who still lives at home with his mother as the title of the film says. It's this bohemian free-spirited attitude that has led him to where he is. He seems at peace with things, yet <more>
something is missing from his life. His brother Pat is the opposite. He's married, has a job, and even just bought a new Porsche; he doesn't believe in slacking off like Jeff. That doesn't mean everything is going well for him though. He really didn't have the money to comfortably afford the Porsche and you can tell that his wife isn't happy about it. But Pat lives in the moment. While showing off the Porsche to Jeff, they see his wife with another man and start to suspect she's having an affair. Even though these two brothers don't generally get along and seem to despise each other a little, Jeff agrees to help Pat out and find out what's going on. Along the way, they begin to learn about each other and their different ways of approaching things. Pat always thought he had his life together and looked down on Jeff. Now's he realizing that maybe Jeff had a better way of looking at things. Jason Segel and Ed Helms play the 2 brothers and make the best of their roles. There's also an interesting sub-plot about what's going on with their mother Susan Sarandon at her job. The movie is part of a recent genre of film called "mumblecore" which generally have low budgets and focus more on the dialogue - sort of like a Quentin Tarantino film without the action. Luckily, the dialogue here is very good and holds your interest throughout. At less than an hour and half which is very rare nowadays , it doesn't meander at all. It focuses on how we spend our days and seems to have a message of living more carefree. But there are plenty of laughs throughout the film which make it very enjoyable.
