DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Despite featuring Jason Segel and Ed Helms, two stars of mainstream comedy hits, this is a far more quirky and slower film than, for example, The Muppets or The Hangover. Fans of both stars will have plenty to enjoy here, as will fans of Susan Sarandon though she has a smaller supporting role. Language, drugs, and some lesbian themes make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Jeff, Who Lives at Home is short enough not to wear out its welcome but the payoff is so slim that the investment of any serious time or effort is unlikely to be repaid in full.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'Jeff, Who Lives at Home' is a whimsical comedy, very whimsical, depending on the warmth of Segal and Sarandon...

USA Today Full Review
Good His brother and, particularly, his mother are just broken enough to make Jeff, Who Lives at Home a winner despite its energy-less title character.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Not really much of a self-starter - unless you count bouts of philosophizing and repeated viewings of the movie "Signs" - Jeff (JASON SEGEL) rarely ventures far beyond his home…which happens to be in the basement of his mother's Baton Rouge house where he and his now estranged brother, Pat (ED HELMS), grew up. Still concerned but completely out of ideas as to getting Jeff to move forward with his life, his mother Sharon (SUSAN SARANDON) has whittled her own dreams for her eldest son down to completing the simple tasks she hopes Jeff might accomplish before she gets home from her civil service job. Today, it's about wood glue - could he simply make it to the store to buy some of the stuff to repair a loose slat in a shutter door?

Well, he can try. But for Jeff, life is anything but simple, as he sets out mindful of his goal and armed with his own special view of the world. He is convinced that if a person can just listen for signs in the universe, a path will be made clear. Thanks to an earlier wrong-number call looking for someone named Kevin, Jeff believes that Kevin is key to finding his way…at least for today. The simple task he sets out to accomplish quickly becomes forgotten, as Jeff encounters a series of comedic and unexpected events that lead him to cross paths with his family in the strangest of locations and circumstances. Along the way, Jeff just may find the meaning of his life... and if he's lucky, pick up the wood glue as well.
