Review: Jeff Who Lives at Home

“While Jeff, Who Lives At Home is basically a glossy independent film that features some A-list stars, it neither treads water as a mainstream exercise in mediocrity nor falls prey to the grating quirkiness seen padding many an independent feature coasting on charm alone. And while it’s not the first film featuring a loveable stoner bringing people together (as in Paul Rudd’s comparable but dissimilar role in this year’s Our Idiot Brother) this latest from the Duplass brothers is more about finding meaning in what is already available to you.”
