“A surprisingly mutable, ultimately poignant day-in-the-life drama about a slacker who genuinely wants to stand tall.”~Village Voice
Aroview: The Duplass brothers follow-up the formidable CYRUS with another deep-centred comedy about the crises of two stagnant adult siblings; one a fatalistic slacker who still lives at home with his mother, the other a world-weary realist caught in mid-life slump between his wife and job.
Hand-crafted by one of the most talented partnerships of the last decade, the directing brothers edge closer to the mainstream here and are sure to put smiles on a wider audience, though it pays the price as a little more predictable than usual, the dramatic ending notwithstanding.

3 stars (Good Enough) Appealing and unpredictable, but somehow less than the sum of its parts. There's enough here for a short film, but at feature length it seems stretched and underwritten. Helms and Segel are great, though.~HiFi
