Comedy? Not exactly
12 October 2014 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Prior to watching "Are You Here" I'd gotten led to think that it was a comedy. It turns out that the movie's more of a dramedy. It's not clear whether the movie's trying to be a straightforward comedy and simply comes out more serious, or if they intended it thusly. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad movie. Zach Galifianakis's stoner is a funny guy, the perfect contrast to Owen Wilson's strait-laced meteorologist. Still, I would've expected more from this combo plus Amy Poehler, especially when directed by the creator of "Mad Men". It was a surprise to see Melissa Rauch (Bernadette on "The Big Bang Theory"), Edward Herrmann and Peter Bogdanovich.

You can't argue with what Galifianakis's character said about pollution.
