Maybe I was expecting too much with this cast. I was hoping for a comedy, it was not funny at all. That said it was an OK drama. A slacker, his brother and mother are disfunctional until a crisis brings them together. Not for kids.

A Unique Screenplay, Not Formulaic, Surprising And Entertaining...

By Al P
Written March 22, 2012
This is a very good example of a typical limited release movie. It won't appeal to the broader audience because it wasn't made for them. This film, like others in its genre, is made to entertain a select group rather than stimulate the masses. The character parts do ramble a bit in this play but soon after the start the viewer begins to empathize and in the end, it's a most worthy effort. While no blockbuster or over-the-top comedy, this is a solid film well worth its ticket price. If you're looking for something different and are willing to relax and be entertained, this is your movie. See it. You won't be disappointed.

Jeff Who Lives at Home Review

When I saw the trailer I couldn't tell if it was going to be one of those really bizarre movies or if it would be be good. To my surprise, both. Jason Segal and Ed Helms do a great job together in this film. Their dialogue seems authentic and nothing was overacted. Perfect. I also enjoyed how thought provoking this movie is, it really makes you think about your life and whether or not things happen for a reason or just coincident. It's just one of those feel good movies with an uplifting message, good acting, good directing, a good screenplay, and good editing. All around I would give this movie a 8/10 and definitely recommend checking it out. Hope this helps XD

A couple parts were funny. I love Jason Segel and am willing to watch everything he's in, and he does a great performance, but a little too cosmic for me. Too far-fetched of a story line.

Can't believe how much I enjoyed this movie. It absolutely sneaked up on me and grabbed my heart. So well laid out--builds slowly and surely, and left me in tears. Touching...
