Storyline

Eccentric Jeffrey Mannus is 29 years old and still lives at home with his mom, Jan. He sees no reason to alter this arrangement, but his perfect world is upended when Jan meets Mert, a motivational speaker. Mert successfully woos Jan and moves in on Jeffrey's territory, something Jeffrey will not tolerate. Jeffrey enlists the aid of an unlikely ally, an aspiring singer-songwriter, Nora, with an anti-establishment penchant and a soft spot for him. As the war between Mert and Jeffrey escalates, something unprecedented happens -- slowly, to both his own surprise and horror, Jeffrey discovers his inner adult. Written by WIP

simply lacks comedy
2 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Jeffrey Mannus (Jon Heder) has always been a loser. He's been a mama's boy since losing his father at an early age. He's 29 and still living with his mom Jan (Diane Keaton). He works at a small bookstore. His mother and her friend Barbara attends motivational speaker Mert Rosenbloom (Jeff Daniels)'s seminar. Mert goes out with Jan pushing aside the possessive Jeffrey. Nora Flannigan (Anna Faris) is a singer songwriter who rails against the corporate establishment.

Jon Heder is playing another annoying man-child. However this one isn't nearly ridiculous enough. The character needs to be more stupid to be actually funny. This character is always destine to be annoying. If he could be stupid, he may get some comedy out of it. Also, Heder has no comedic help in this movie. He doesn't have a side kick. The battle with Mert has its moments. Anna Faris isn't playing this too comically either. She could have done more jokes although they have a nice easy chemistry together. This comedy feels like it's missing a comedic character.
