Jeff Who Lives at Home

Posted on March 17, 2012


Jeff Who Lives at Home – Jeff (Jason Segel of How I Met Your Mother) is a 30ish guy living in his mom’s basement who spends most of his days getting high and thinking about the movie Signs.  Everything means something to him as he tries to find his destiny.  Mom (Susan Sarandon) just wants Jeff to fix the broken blinds and is being secretly crushed on by office mate Carol (Rae Dawn Chong).  Brother Pat (Ed Helms of The Office) wears short sleeved shirts with a tie (shudder) and drives his new Boxster into a tree while his wife (Judy Greer, What Women Want) wants him to really hear what she’s saying. 

 The signs lead Jeff along with brother and mom to find the answer to a question their dad used to ask: what is the most important day in history?  This is being called a “slacker” comedy.    I’m not sure what that means but I liked it.  It’s also shorter than normal movies, only about an hour and a half.
