Jeff Who Lives at Home

Based on the Duplass Brothers’ last effort, Cyrus, their new film for 2012 would be highly anticipated, but with stars like Jason Segel, Ed Helms, and Susan Sarandon this film is near the top of the “must sees” this year. The trailer Jeff Who Lives at Home was released today and it sure looks like a wonderful departure for both leads.  The film is scheduled for release on March 16.

In particular, Segel has dialed down his bug-eyed comedy persona way way down and now one wonders if this film will do for Segel what Cyrus did for his Knocked Up costar Jonah Hill. The film looks like a real departure for Segel and seems like a nice companion for the more mainstream Five-Year Engagement coming out just a month later.  Meanwhile, if this film is half as good as Helms’ last indie comedy, Cedar Rapids, then it’s sure to be worth seeing.

Synopsis:

On his way to the store to buy wood glue, Jeff looks for signs from the universe to determine his path. However, a series of comedic and unexpected events leads him to cross paths with his family in the strangest of locations and circumstances. Jeff just may find the meaning of his life… and if he’s lucky, pick up the wood glue as well.

    This looks like it’ll be a good year for the indie comedies. This and Friends with Kids look great! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpZ_EdhEA38

    Yes, Friends with Kids look great. With half the cast of Bridesmaids and Adam Scott as the male lead.
