An Appeal to Art
Verified purchase
This movie is monumental. A pure form of minimalistic drama encapsulated in a hour and a half long reel. The acting displayed is more than fantastic and the film highlights the trade marks of the actors chosen. Jason Segal's character is representative of the I hate goodness of human kind and is a guiding light for the supporting roles to grab on to. By the end Jeff reunites them all as a collective and shows there is no duality amongst them. Moreover, he portrays the mysticism of life to be the force that binds all things and leads the true path to purpose. Everytime I view this masterpiece I am filled with so much joy from the incredibly dry humor/irony and I am brought to tears by the shear beauty of the climactic yet short apex of the film. Truly a 5 star rating.

Definitely not a comedy
Verified purchase
Advertised as a comedy but there isn't one funny moment in the movie. Was hoping for much more especially considering some of the actors. Slightly interesting drama if that's what you're into otherwise I wouldn't recommend.

Just wait for it...

And you will be disappointed like me. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen but it never did. Character development is poor. None of them are likable. The mom was for a while but it got weird toward the last third of the movie.

Absolutely worth your time.

Those who say it isn’t a comedy or that it needs more action - miss the point. It’s about family, relationships, and what happens when you take life for granted. It’s simple, beautiful, sweet, and yes - it does have a few lighter, funny moments. Jason Segel is amazing, as are all the other actors in this film. Understated and it’ll stick with you. If you want slapstick, this isn’t it. And thank goodness. This is so, so much more fulfilling. It was in my queue for awhile, and I’m so glad I finally watched it.

Intelligent Comedy, Meaningful Drama
Verified purchase
The comedy in this film is not in your face, slap-stick, raunchy, garbage as most in this era are used to. For those that still appreciate subtle humor amongst a dramatic backdrop, you'll really appreciate this one! The plot is beautifully choreographed and touched me much more deeply than I expected. Great film.

Every movie wants to be Jeff Who lives at Home.
Verified purchase
Jeff who lives at home is not only life changing but also pure inspiration. This movie is quintessential . It's so perfect, by the end it feels like you've done the perfect amount of molly: PURE HAPPINESS, with no hangover. You are filled with joy, excitement, empathy, and euphoria. Jeff who lives at home is breath taking. At the end you are astonished and will need time to digest the artwork you just watched. The next day you'll want to watch it again and every month for the rest of your life. This movie has a special place in my heart that no one has ever touched. It's a true cinematic piece of perfection. The Duplass brothers truly came up with the most amazing blueprint for movies and it's Jeff who Lives at Home.
