Arnold Schwarzenegger Joins Kung Fury



So what did RAMA think of the film? Make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

The Duplass Brothers who brought us Cyrus, have done it again! JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME is flat out Hilarious and it finds its way to your heart. I couldn’t stop laughing, you’re going to be rooting for Segel’s character Jeff. One of the best family comedies I’ve seen in recent years. Segel, Helms, Greer, Sarandon, what a great ensemble cast, JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME makes slacking off seem awesome..

On his way to the store to buy wood glue, Jeff looks for signs from the universe to determine his path. However, a series of comedic and unexpected events leads him to cross paths with his family in the strangest of locations and circumstances. Jeff just may find the meaning of his life… and if he’s lucky, pick up the wood glue as well.

Duplass Brothers are slowly but surely perfecting their own brand of comedy, which may be influenced by other stories and structures in the past, but they’re making it their own and they want the fans to know that when they come to watch Duplass movies, you’ll get complete Duplass experience. In JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME, Duplass up the ante a bit by incorporating car chases, stuntwork done by the stars themselves, so the scope is significantly bigger this time around, and for a movie with the title ‘At Home’, the story sure doesn’t take place entirely at home.
There’s still that hand held camera method but nothing too insane, I’d compare it more to ‘The Office’ series, where the camera would suddenly do a close up on a shot that may be considered funny.

To me, the comedy in JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME works because of the conflicts, on one hand you have these two brothers with very different ways of looking at life, and on the other you have their mother, at work, not really liking what her sons have become and at the same she’s being stalked by a secret admirer who is supposedly working in that same office.
Segel plays Jeff. Segel needs no introduction, he’s a consistent funnyman, the fact that he’s freakishly tall and his expressions look animated kinda help. Jeff is one of those people we probably can all relate to, because we have our own versions of Jeff in our family or in our neighborhood. I wouldn’t necessarily consider Jeff lazy, he’s just too fascinated with destiny, he waits for glory, he doesn’t just go along with other people’s regular plans, he’s obsessed with Shyamalan’s movie Signs and he strongly believes that he’s meant for something much greater.

You recognize Ed Helms from those Hangover movies, but here Helms shows another side and his acting is solid. There’s one emotional argument scene between him and actress Greer, where every frustration is out on the table, and this scene proves how tremendous and underrated both those actors are.

Helms plays the brother Pat who’s on the other end of the spectrum, he sees his brother Jeff as someone that doesn’t contribute to society, and yet Pat doesn’t have his priorities straight anymore and his marriage is on the brink of falling apart.
Each of the brothers wonders how the other could live like they do. So Duplass takes Jeff out his home and puts him into these signs/destiny-motivated situations. With Pat, the Duplass immediately takes away all of his pleasures and hits him hard with reality check.
So the comedy that the Duplass crafted and set in motion along the way aims to somehow make these characters end up appreciating each other again.
JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME is laugh, laugh, laugh, and it ends feel-good and hopeful.
