"Jeff, Who Lives at Home"

The theme of this charming indie film is "Everything happens for a reason". The story centers around two brothers, played by Jason Segel and Ed Helm. Segel's character, Jeff is in his 30's and still lives in his mom's basement. Jeff is sent to the store to buy some glue for a home repair. And there his day of destiny begins. The story line is pretty unpredictable and the plot takes several twists and turns. It's offbeat and I can see why it didn't do well at the box office. Both Helm and Segel do a great job. Susan Sarandon playing the mom was also excellent, as usual. Highly recommended.
4 1/2 stars out of 5
