The other night I came across this movie on Netflix. I was a little bit unsure if I should watch, but I gave it a try. Jeff Who Lives At Home is a movie based off the character Jeff. Jeff is a 30 year old who lives with his mom with no job, no girlfriend, he really doesn’t have anything going on in his life. But he does feel the need to search for the meaning of life. Doing so he feels that there’s signs to life and you must go with instinct and it will lead to something more.
At the beginning of the film Jeff (played by actor Jason Segel) received a phone call asking for a “Kevin”. The person was really sure that the number he called was for Kevin. Jeff believes that there’s no such thing as wrong numbers, what if this is a sign? In a way Jeff stays focused on “KEVIN”. Trying to figure out why and what? During so his Mother (Susan Sarandon) calls and ask for a huge favor. Buy glue to fix a broken closet blind. For once in her son’s life to do something around the house. As Jeff leaves his house he’s on a mission for his mom. But find someone on the bus who has KEVIN on the back of his jersey. This must be a sign! Jeff goes and follows the stranger.
Things happen for a reason. If something happens and leads you into another direction, follow it. Jeff also has a brother named Pat (Ed Helms) is dealing with a failing marriage and is dealing with a mid-life crisis. Instead of investing and saving for a new home he spends it on a new Porsche. Causing more tension in the relationship. Pat decides to take his business meeting to Hooters where he receives a phone call from his mother Sharon. She begging him to help his brother buy the glue and install the new blind. Pat agrees to help, then realizes Jeff walking by in front of the restaurant.
Pat really wants to show off his new Porsche, getting a little hot headed he shows how he can speed and break all of a sudden. Terrible idea! Swerving through traffic and driving right into a tree. While negotiating with the owners of the tree. Jeff realizes Pat’s wife Linda (Judy Greer) at the gasoline station with another man. Story turns and focuses on the investigation is Lindy cheating on Pat? They follow them to a nice restaurant and over hears her reasons why she’s not happy. After that the plot gets crazier. I thought it was a great movie with a better meaning behind it. Also, it was pretty funny at some parts but at sometimes I got a bit teary eyed. But you can watch the movie trailer of JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME and watch it now on NETFLIX!
