Indie all the way. Very funny at times, and quite poignant at others. Never thought a comedy movie could riff so effectively on M. Night Shyamalan's movie Signs and the the theme that everything happens for a reason and we're all connected, so be patient and pure of heart and you will achieve your true destiny. Susan Sarandon and Judy Greer are luminous in key supporting roles. And Segel is terrific in the lead. Ed Helms is good too, though I found some of his attempts to catch his wife cheating to be a bit too over the top and belonging more in a Hangover movie.

A successful mix of relatable personal strife with comedic relief offered by Segel in his boilerplate mix of lovable underachiever with bigger ideas and desires. At times a bit gimmicky, but an easy story to stick with as it balances hitting you in the feels with that little voice saying "it's gonna work out."

One of the most memorable films I've ever seen.

Aside from the movie trying VERY hard to be quirky, the storytelling is too contrived and a bit too convenient for my taste.

The shaky camera was so distracting it took me out of the picture. The story was meandering and not interesting.

There is 1hr23 minutes i wont ever get back. I have seen this story many times before. There is a reason blah blah i am supposed to do this blah blah. Very bland and un authentic story. Was bored through and through. We all knew what was going to happen as soon as he hit the ridge then the helicopter comes. Bad accident he is going to become a hero of a guy named kevin. So predictable in so many ways. Justbad overall

Not that it's bad, but it's only really that funny in the beginning, I guess I'd say during the first act. The rest is really good drama though. Everything connects! Really great!

When we see we just needed to escape out of the ordinary to see what we wanted all along. When we thought we would be extra ordinary to reveal later in life we do somethings that not many ordinary people would do in these situations when we see we pull others out of their troubles to see we have incredible strengths that don't last that long but thank God we have some people to have our backs and pull us out. When what makes one thing look like trash is finding it's missing pieces to put together and fix to make back ordinary again.

This film works, is funny, is quirky, is believable, and has some uncomfortable moments. It is the story of three mysteries to solve: 1- who is Kevin and why being obsessed. 2- is the wife about to ask for divorce. 3- who is the secret admirer. A cozy feeling transpire even in the worst moments of the film. Definitely intriguing, with gay moments that make me wonder about the ulterior motives of the film. French film feeling also.

This heartwarming tale takes advantage of Jason Segel's versatility and Ed Helm's best performance is years.
The soundtrack helps a lot and really connects with the whole story.
The only bad thing noticeable in Jeff Who Lives at Home is the cinematography. It looked like as if a 8 years old kid was playing with the camera.

A sweet movie about the power of coincidence and the bonds of family and friends.

Funny and with good acting and some drama. It's a great film about two brothers. One is a socially awkward shut in and the other is a screw up in a terrible relationship where he might be being cheated on. It brings the two brothers that don't care about each other come together and come closer. I thought this was a great film and I loved the duality between the two brothers and their bond growing. It's on Netflix and I say if you have Netflix check it out.

It starts off strange and interesting and im curious to learn more about this jeff guy but for a short film i felt the story about his mother was boring and the story about his brother was not much better the ending is all sappy might make you cry.
