Are You Here (2014)



Critic Consensus: Given the amount of talent assembled on both sides of the camera, Are You Here falls bewilderingly flat.

It's funny, clunky, earnest, and barely credible, but it's all of a piece.

Everything about Are You Here feels like a bottom-drawer script idea that was put together too casually and carelessly.

Are You Here lacks more than just the question mark that should go on its title. It lacks a point-of-view that makes sense, that feels central.

"Are You Here" doesn't feel all there.

"Are You Here" proves a gently immersive, ingratiating, often witty character comedy with a pair of comfortably effective lead performances.

[An] endearing muddle, which flails in search of an identity.

Audience Reviews for Are You Here


A lackluster comedy, Are You Here delivers some laughs but doesn't have much of a plot. The story follows a weatherman who leaves the big city and goes to the countryside to help his best friend through the death of his father, but his friend's mental and emotional problems tests the limits of their friendship. Starring Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis, and Amy Poehler, the cast is pretty good; particularly with this type of comedy. The writing however, is rather weak and unfocused. Still, it tries to say some things about finding one's purpose, and appreciating what one has. Are You Here is entertaining at times, yet doesn't really work all that well.
