The funny, touching and vital Jeff, Who Lives at Home reaffirms your faith in Jay and Mark Duplass. Their films hit you where you live.

"Jeff, Who Lives at Home" is a high-wire act that could crash if the actors were out of sync, but under this big top, the never-better Segel keeps everyone aloft.

The lives of these sweet, confused, basically decent people wrap around one another in ways that are funny, far-fetched and touching.

It's the modest, mumblecore version of the seemingly perennial story of man-children in the promised land.

It's a brilliant sleight of hand: Nothing important seems to be happening, and yet stuff keeps happening, and the movie is always pushing forward.

You come to like Jeff and even to admire him. The aura of holy foolishness that hangs around him is not just bong exhaust: he turns out to be the hero of a disarmingly sincere spiritual fable.

Most of the material avoids the treacle zone, while Jason Segel, as the man-child in residence, gives a performance that I can only describe as gravely affecting.

"Jeff, Who Lives at Home" has a meandering quality, like its title, that's oddly appealing; you feel like you know these very regular-looking people, and slowly become invested in their dilemmas.

Segel ... seems to be staking his claim on just about any sweet, clueless character that comes along. He should be more discriminating.

This is one of those smart, funny, rueful movies like "Cedar Rapids" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" where you sense that everyone involved truly cares about the characters. It's impossible not to join in the good feeling.

A sitcom would set these events in motion and 22 minutes later have them solved. This is a sitcom at four times the length, 10 percent the amusement, and triple the amount of nauseating photography.

The plausibility of the finale is open to question, but the filmmaking duo's determination to take us there makes a nice kind of sense.

For both Segel and the Duplass brothers, Jeff marks a turning point. The actor comes into his own with a layered, pleasing performance, and the filmmakers behind The Puffy Chair, Baghead and Cyrus move towards more commercial films.

A surprisingly sappy misfire from brothers Jay and Mark Duplass - a hug-it-out, touchy-feely movie that succumbs to the maudlin sentimentality they had avoided in all their previous pictures.

This latest comedy from writer-directors Jay and Mark Duplass turns out to be chock-full of an element missing from most of today's movies: genuine surprise.

This isn't a movie for everyone, but for fans of quirky charm leavened occasionally by uncomfortable, realistic exchanges, it's a small delight.

The whole movie is about piecing together broken parts. It may not always come together, but what it makes, if you look at it the right way, is endearing.

There are some funny scenes in which the two brothers spy on the wife, who may be having an affair, but the movie's climax is a badly contrived attempt to ratify Jeff's notion of personal destiny.

A goofy, sweet comedy about estranged siblings who work their way back to brotherly love in the course of a daylong, very shaggy caper of coincidences.

A whimsical comedy, very whimsical, depending on the warmth of Segal and Sarandon, the discontent of Helms and Greer...

All of these comic actors find different sorts of laughs -- sadder, truer ones -- by toning down some of their usual tendencies. They're no less effective this way, but the shift does provide an unexpected tone.
