Movie Reviews

  • you'll never double over in laughter, but the whole thing feels pleasant, and at eighty minutes, goes down pretty smooth
    by Chris Bumbray [JoBlo's Movie Emporium ]
  • with his large bod, soft features, and air of goofy sweetness, Jason Segel is a natural fit for Jeff, Who Lives at Home
    Review rate : B by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • this isn't a movie for everyone, but for fans of quirky charm leavened occasionally by uncomfortable, realistic exchanges, it's a small delight
    4.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • this endearing and breezy comic fable watches Jeff's coming of age and promises nothing after his moment of truth
    3.5 of 5 by Sara Maria Vizcarrondo [Boxoffice Magazine ]
  • there's nothing wrong with Jeff as a character; lovable stoners are a Hollywood fixture. But they're just tough to hang a movie on
    3 of 4 by Scott Bowles [USA Today ]
  • the title says a lot about him - except that Jeff has unexpected depths, as this often engaging and heartfelt comedy-drama shows
    3 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • the movie's climax is a badly contrived attempt to ratify Jeff's notion of personal destiny
    by J. R. Jones [Chicago Reader ]
  • the movie feels as contrived as its simplistic view of the universe and as unchallenging
    2 of 4 by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine ]
  • the film's warm, inspirational finish feels like a surprise, but not at all like a cheat
    by Ian Buckwalter [NPR ]
  • the Duplasses' shooting style, executed by Jas Shelton, sometimes seems incapable of letting two shots in a row pass without at least one short zoom in or out
    by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • semi-improvised dramedies, but lacks the wonderful squirm-inducing quality that sets them apart
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • it's not a major film, but an endearing adventure in hope nonetheless
    by Brian Miller [Village Voice ]
  • it feels incomplete and the ending is entirely too convenient
    2.5 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • feels a little too aimless, then a little too obvious
    2.5 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • ending in an emotional scene that elevates this quirky work
    3 of 4 by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star ]
  • as is, this semi-improvised feature comes off as a willfully vague exercise that, like its dimwit protagonist, presumes that profundity and enlightenment will emerge from the morass eventually
    1 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
