Will Henry is a newly single graphic novelist balancing parenting his young twin daughters and a classroom full of students while exploring and navigating the rich complexities of new love and letting go of the woman who left him.
Brothers from other mothers, from different sides of the world, with different opinions on damn near everything, travel in a dusty old Subaru, coast to coast across the fantastic and fantastically flawed United States of America.
PEOPLE PLACES THINGS tells the story of Will Henry (Jemaine Clement), a newly single graphic novelist father balancing single-parenting his young twin daughters, writers block, a classroom full students, all the while exploring and navigating the rich complexities of new love and letting go of the woman who left him.
In the Flight of the Conchords song business time, Jemaine sings that he makes love with his socks on. In the open credits the man is wearing socks, but the woman isn't. See more »
Dad, I made this flower for you.
[she pins it in his hair]
Oh, thank you. Exactly what I needed.
[now to Clio]
Hey, don't think about eating that cake yet, Clio, please.
Thank you. Have you seen your mother?

This movie attracted me due simply to the fact that it stars Jemaine Clement. I think the guy is hilarious, even when he's not supposed to be, due mostly to his awkward demeanor, funny accent, and spot-on delivery. I'm a big fan of Flight of the Conchords and I love his movie Eagle vs Shark, so I knew I had to watch this one.
It's a bit of a romantic comedy, which I've never been a huge fan of, but I've seen a few that were really well done. This one is not particularly well done and feels sloppy and cheesy throughout. It won't make you cry or contemplate life or leave you thinking about it for long after the credits roll, but it's still entertaining enough to keep you watching, and Jemaine, as always, is hilarious and fun to watch.
