It was oddly interestingly strange and I saw it till the end coz it was worth seeing of course.

Jeff is quirky and loveable. It's interesting how the baby of the family helps the family come of age. I love Susan Sarandon, she never disappoints.

Very different film and certainly off the track for typical Hollywood films, but enjoyable and loved the strong message about being a quirky and eccentric fellow is ok, and the world needs more of these types, not less.

Simply a delight and a treat to see this film. A little off the mainstream but that's ok bcuz they use the camera well. And the hero in the film is a good little surprise. I won't spoil it. Go see it!

A wonderful off-beat and quirky film that warms the heart! Not the typical Hollywood drivel for a change. Good job!

I like movies like this one - think I Heart Huckabees... perhaps Running with Scissors, too, except the latter is much more serious and fact based than this one... oh, and Midnight in Paris! They all have an element of the unexplained universe in them... some MAY call it fantasy while others will say "That's the truth up there on the screen, it all really exists!". These films embrace notions that nothing happens by circumstance alone; that everything happens for a reason... and that life is filled with mystery and hope and optimism even when you're not able to see what's right in front of your face or are trying to see what you know is right in front of your face! If you like that sort of thing wrapped up in a comedy you will like if not love this flick! It's funny, well-acted and soulful... it's for spiritually conscious person... or the soon-to-be spiritually conscious individual! Lots of laughs and worth every penny of your entertainment dollar! I kept thinking "Why is Jason Schwartzman not in this film (hope I spelled his last name correctly.) I highly recommend this film to the romantic lover of life's fantasies that we all believe are or could be real... I believe they're real. 0_0.

Wow! What a waste of money and most importantly, TIME! I would have left the theater, but didn't want to be rude to the friends I came with. Most boring, pointless movie I have been to in a very long time!!

I loved this movie and I did not want it to end. It is thoughtful and charming, real and down-to-earth. Jason Segel is perfect in his role as the hapless 'loser' looking for signs and a meaning to his life. The brother is perfectly typecast as well, as a man who is not in touch with his relationship with his wife. Susan Sarandon does a marvellous job as a woman who has given up her zest for life, only to find it reclaimed with the help of a friend.

Light, thoughtful, amusing, nice to see a funny story of people with real problems instead of Hollywood ones. Direction is fresh but unnerving number of closeups, minor minor flaw.

I enjoyed it. It had several solid laughs. Definitely a much stronger film than Cyrus.

Finally something different and original. Not the same old theme. Lots of laughs.

A sweet philosophical reflection about how we figure out our path in life and surrender to fate. Great cast, a solid movie that doesn't fit into the usual mold of a comedy or drama but is worth seeing.

While I enjoy indie movies and movies with heart as opposed to standard, formulaic Hollywood fare, this movie had me asking, "What's the point"? It was not profound, not thought provoking, and wasted far too much film reel on extremely long close-ups that served very little purpose. The main character, Jeff, sat in a basement smoking pot all day and waited for "signs" of what he was meant to do next. Not inspiring, very little humour, (not enough to make it worthwhile sitting through the drudgery): not sure what Susan Sarandon was thinking when she signed on. Still a fan of Jason Segel's. My advice would be to rent it if you're curious, but... nah... why bother!

One of the most boring movies I've seen in a while. Uninteresting characters moving very slowly, mostly close ups that will have you counting pimples after a while. It's too close if a complete head doesn't fit on the huge screen and don't do that with Susan Sarandon, it showcases her wrinkles. Plus, terrible story that goes nowhere, and not funny at all. When it tries to be a drama, it fails as well. We are not that desperate for entertainment! Stay away!

I was expecting something a bit more slapstick but was pleasantly surprised at the humour, and humanity, in this film. Add to a sweet and sensitive screenplay a great ensemble cast, and you have Jeff Who Lives at Home. Anyone who is attracted to real, imperfect people with real-people-problems will appreciate this film.

Surprisingly good. It's about the lives of these sweet, confused, basically decent people wrap around one another in ways that are funny, far-fetched and touching. It's a dysfunctional family that almost everyone in real life could relate to. Jason Segel was adorable as Jeff.

I really really enjoyed this movie. It is not a comedy, even though you may think it is with Jason Segal and Ed Helms, so be warned. That being said, it is not VERY dramatic, either. Just a really enjoyable movie. It is a touching, feel-good movie that is REALLY enjoyable.

Expected to be a real comedy, did not laugh a lot, I was kind of disappointed.

This is a 10! For sure! I was going to give it a 9 because it's a little slow... but I think it's meant to be like that. I loved the quarky music and how nothing was over the top. It was also interesting to see a vending machine with hair ;) Loved this movie!

Lighthearted humour, sincere, with convincing acting. Resonates throughout as the story unfolds.

Warning! It's an intelligent movie. If you are not intelligent, stay away from this movie. I enjoyed so much the story for it's really different (one of a kind) from any other I've seen. It's a crescendo of pleasure, from a simple and not very common start, up to a fully amazing final...

The movie has its moments. Memorable ones. Wish they all fit together a little better though.

A refreshingly un-hollywood, un-pretentious and touching portrayal of how the quotidian can be inspiring and meaningful, if we let it. The close-minded, thrill-seeking 3D-loving crowd are warned to stay away from this movie. So too are those who prefer formulaic and farcical comedy. This movie is none of those things. It is a straightforward telling of a straightforward story. It doesn't pander to anyone, and it isn't full of itself either. But as others have said, it has the worst trailer in the history of trailers. Don't go by the trailer. Watch it if you like interesting films.

Good acting played by everyone, especially by Susan Sarandon but the story line is thin. Plays like a semi-mediocre sitcom. Just not enough substance for me. Pretty drab all the way through. I am really surprised that some rated it a 10. Do you guys even know what makes a 10?

When this movie started, I thought slow and boring. Later as it continues, I loved it, the story was so simple and yet complicated. Loved the characters; Jason Segel and Susan Sarandon were amazing. One word, excellent!!

Truly a grown up movie, not a silly comedy at all. Jason Segel is at his absolute best, but if you're looking for another Sarah Marshall or I Love You, Man, you won't find it here. Here we meet a more refined presentation of his comic and dramatic talent. The entire cast is stellar. It tugs the heart and makes you genuinely feel for everyone on screen. I couldn't help but turn to my friend several times through the movie to whisper (I promise, namudar, I whispered!) "I love this film!" I only wish the trailer hadn't revealed so many scenes, and in a rather untrue to the film sort of way.

It's made by the same pair who created "Cyrus" but this film is far, far better. The trailer doesn't do justice to how good it really is. In fact, the trailer is the weakest part. I went because of the strong posted here and I agree with her. It's not a comedy, it's a very adult film with bits of adult humour in it. Jason Segal is amazing as is the man who played his brother. BTW, to the lady who brought the child with her: if you're having to explain the film to him, then he was perhaps too young to see it. If I heard you, then so did others. I think that you could some regard for others in the theatre next time.

Not humourous at all. The movie has no depth to it and is more of a wonderer. Totally unrealistic.

This movie didn't try to be anything! It was funny without trying to be funny. Touching without making you want to gag. A story line that wasn't predictable. If you are going for just a comedy this might not be a movie for you, although it was very funny. It has more of a dry humor. A real grown up comedy! Highly recommend you see it.
