This movie is monumental. A pure form of minimalistic drama encapsulated in a hour and a half long reel. The acting displayed is more than fantastic and the film highlights the trade marks of the actors chosen. Jason Segal's character is representative of the I hate goodness of human kind and is a guiding light for the supporting roles to grab on to. By the end Jeff reunites them all as a collective and shows there is no duality amongst them. Moreover, he portrays the mysticism of life to be the force that binds all things and leads the true path to purpose. Everytime I view this masterpiece I am filled with so much joy from the incredibly dry humor/irony and I am brought to tears by the shear beauty of the climactic yet short apex of the film. Truly a 5 star rating.
Advertised as a comedy but there isn't one funny moment in the movie. Was hoping for much more especially considering some of the actors. Slightly interesting drama if that's what you're into otherwise I wouldn't recommend.
And you will be disappointed like me. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen but it never did. Character development is poor. None of them are likable. The mom was for a while but it got weird toward the last third of the movie.
The comedy in this film is not in your face, slap-stick, raunchy, garbage as most in this era are used to. For those that still appreciate subtle humor amongst a dramatic backdrop, you'll really appreciate this one! The plot is beautifully choreographed and touched me much more deeply than I expected. Great film.
Those who say it isn’t a comedy or that it needs more action - miss the point. It’s about family, relationships, and what happens when you take life for granted. It’s simple, beautiful, sweet, and yes - it does have a few lighter, funny moments. Jason Segel is amazing, as are all the other actors in this film. Understated and it’ll stick with you. If you want slapstick, this isn’t it. And thank goodness. This is so, so much more fulfilling. It was in my queue for awhile, and I’m so glad I finally watched it.
