Bottom Line: A simple-minded, day-in-the-life, dysfunctional-family ‘comedy’ that goofily and warm-heartedly meanders about for its 82-minutes of screen time. ‘Families can be messed up’ and ‘Everything happens for a reason’ are its all-too-familiar messages – but I’ll be darned if it doesn’t make you grin and kind of…sort of care. Get out of the house and catch a matinee of JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME.
Starring: Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Judy Greer and Susan Sarandon
Directed by: Jay and Mark Duplass (BAGHEAD and CYRUS)
Running time: 82 minutes
