Jeff, Who Lives at Home review

Seen at a pre-release screening in Los Angeles:

This indie comedy starring Jason Segel and Ed Helms is the Duplass brothers’ follow-up to Cyrus, and while the intentions are nice, the existential role is getting cliche – done as recently as last year by Segel’s bud, Paul Rudd in Our Idiot Brother.

This movie would’ve been more appropriately titled A Day in the Life of Jeff, as we follow Segel’s character for a day. It only keeps my attention because I like the cast, but there’s not a whole lot going on and the payoff is mildly satisfying.

Not a bad way to spend 80 minutes, but I’d only recommend this to fans of Segel, Helms or the work of the Duplass brothers.

Jeff, Who Lives at Home opened in limited release Friday.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5

IMDb rating: 6.9
What it should be: 6.9
