"I watched Signs again last night" Those are the words muttered by our hero, Jeff (Jason Segel) a 30 year old stoner who still lives with his mother (Susan Surandon) Jeff also has a brother, Pat (Ed Helms) who has a wife and is far more successful than him in life. But on one certain day all of their lives come together and change forever. The chemistry between Segel and Helms is very brotherly and if I didn't know before I would have believed that they were actually brothers. But, sadly there are some problems with the story like one example is the camera-work. It seems so oddly done with all the random zoom ins on the people's faces and it felt more like found footage. And also, the mother's story line wasn't that interesting and felt unneeded. So all in all, Jeff, Who Lives at Home is good for a viewing and Segel and Helms performances are what really are the best part of this movie and this movie deserves to be watched just for that.
