Movie Info

Neil and Sarah used to talk about bands they love, now they talk about gift cards. They are, in short, in that uneasy transition from hipster to yuppie, and they're asking themselves that universal question of all thirtysomething married couples: How The Hell Did That Happen? In an effort to rekindle their relationship, they set out on a trip that lands them back in their old neighborhood, in a trendy section of Los Angeles. A few drinks bring back a few memories, and Neil and Sarah end up breaking into the apartment they used to share, and squatting illegally for a few days in their twentysomething lives. After throwing a raging "housewarming" party, Neil and Sarah must rely on their grown-up resources to avoid some serious consequences. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Nesting

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6) | Rotten (9)

  • "Nesting" is a sitcom, but a really slow and dull one that barely grinds out 22 minutes' worth of plot to fill a 90-minute hole.

    May 11, 2012 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • "Nesting" deals with an evergreen question, grappling with aging, maturity, responsibility. Unfortunately, the person doing that grappling is so lax he doesn't seem worth knowing.

  • Writer-director John Chuldenko stretches a sitcom episode premise to feature-length breaking point in "Nesting."

    May 10, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • "Nesting" takes an old idea and tosses in a few today-sounding phrases in hopes of coming up with a fresh-feeling movie. But that isn't enough.

    May 10, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Chuldenko doesn't aspire to hard realism, but a lifestyle comedy with hard-to-buy fundamentals and a central couple you can't invest in is a dubious proposition nonetheless.

    May 8, 2012 | Full Review…
  • The script unfortunately suffers from its own case of arrested development, barely getting out of the gate before stalling, and never building enough laughs or narrative impetus to justify feature length.
