Let’s take a look at the different reviews from critics all over the country when it comes to this independent film:
“You come to like Jeff and even to admire him. The aura of holy foolishness that hangs around him is not just bong exhaust: he turns out to be the hero of a disarmingly sincere spiritual fable.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
“Most of the material avoids the treacle zone, while Jason Segel, as the man-child in residence, gives a performance that I can only describe as gravely affecting.” Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
“A ‘Twilight Zone’-ish tale about fate told in the twee New Agey style of the modified mumblecore movement…mildly amusing, but…doesn’t really earn its would-be revelatory punch-line.” – Frank Swietek, One Guys Opinion
“A good cast and some comic moments make “Jeff, Who Lives at Home” an intermittently engaging sit, but even at an economical 84 minutes, it takes too long to get to places that are all too obvious to see from a distance.” – Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews.
