Jeff is 30 successfully unemployed and living in his mothers basement experimenting with recreational drugs and watching the TV. Then one day he takes a wrong number call for someone called `Kevin' and decides it is a sign as per his fave film that Mel Gibson `classic' `Signs', you know the one with the crop circles. He is one of these people who thinks everything happens for a reason and so this random moment will lead him to his possible destiny. This thankfully occurs when he sees a teenager on a bus with `Kevin' on his T - Shirt, so as any sane person would do, he sets off in hot (well luke warm) pursuit.

Jeff (Jason Segel of `I Love You Man' and `Forgetting Sarah Marshall') also has a brother Pat (Ed Helms `The Hangover), who is at a turning point in his relationship. Despite the state of their finances he thinks that buying a Porsche will help, but then he sees his wife with another man. Enlisting the help of Jeff they set off in warmish pursuit of the pair. Meanwhile their long suffering mum played by the wonderful Susan Sarandon ( I love her because she was in `The Rocky Horror Picture Show') is in a job with a secret admirer and she thinks things might be looking up, if only she could get her lazy son off the sofa.

This is a movie that wants to be quirky and it sort of gets there and it wants to be funny and I did laugh on at least two occasions, but it was more the schadenfreude kind of thing, where you laugh at others misfortunes, which is what the movie was playing for. It is though a caring film; relationships are at the core as well as misplaced value in material things and the belief that looking at things from a different angle can bring massive rewards.

It has a run time of just under an hour and a half and it flows by in a reassured pace.

This is a perfect, perfect film provided you know what it is about and the style of the film beforehand! Jason Segel is truly a god and carries this film from good into a masterpiece! There is nothing complicated about the storyline and there is not meant to be - it just includes some of the most relateable characters in any film I have seen this year! Ed Helms is fantastic and the quest for 'Kevin', although a sub plot, had me gripped. I would thouroughly recommend this to anyone who loves indie films, relateable, funny and truly perfect films or just simply for Jason Segel!
Definately my new cult favourite! Alongside Napoleon Dynamite...

Querky feel good film, well worth the watch.
Slow and steady and builds up.

A lot of use of the F word, which i don't object to, but it felt like they thought it was funny and most of the time these bits were not.

This film is a real gem. Funny, sad, poignant and thouroughly entertaining.
Jason Segal is excellent as Jeff as is Susan Sarandon as his mother.

After hearing about this movie only a few days ago, I decided to look it up on the internet. I watched it online to see if it was any good. Ed Helms is such a great actor (The Office, The Hangover Pt. 1 and 2) and Jason Segel is no exception either - both are amazing. This is a brilliant film, one of my favourites for sure. Recommended for all! If they don't release a BluRay of this in the UK - just get it from the US - its region free. Thanks for looking!

I caught this on a long haul last week. I wouldn't normally have chosen to watch it, going from the title of the film i assumed it was going to be a juvenile comedy about some nerdy bloke who can't speak to women. It's not, in fact it's probably the best film i've seen this year. A wonderful heart warming movie that sees Jeff and his brother thrown together to try and expose his brothers wife who is having an affair..... But its much more than this. Its a fantastic film that i think many will overlook, as i nearly did.
