Under The RadarBy manonfireuk (403 reviews) from Liverpool , 13 May 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]This is the kind of film that will slip by most people because it doesn't sound like much on paper and that will be a real shame because I thought it was a great movie. It's short, funny and moving, probably the best movie made by the Duplass guys so far. This style of movie won't be to everyone's taste and during the first 20 mins you may find yourself wondering where this movie can possibly go but stick with it and you'll be pleasantly surprised

Waste of time, dull film about nothing. Avoid.By SCLSCL (2 reviews) , 26 Oct 2013Dull dull dull. Fifteen minutes in, you are fooled into thinking this could be the quirky, entertaining story that you expect it to be. Instead it ends up dragging on and on and is essentially a film about nothing. Instead it just comes across as an independent film trying to be artistic, but falling flat as this film is dull and highly forgettable. AVOID.
Don't waste 90 minutes of your lifeBy CaptainObvious89 (27 reviews) , 04 Oct 2013BOOOORRRRRIIINNNGGGG i thought this would a be comedy on the same type of style as Clerks, Clerk 2 etc but instead i was left bored, uninterested and dissappointed. and actually funny moments are few and far between. nothing really happens, i thought the plot was weak all the way through.

a charming fun filmBy davidginsberg (113 reviews) from London , 12 Aug 2013Put this on thinking this would be an indie bit of navel gazing nonsense but it was actually pretty good. Jeff is Jason Segels slacker and it follows his day as he tries to find meaning to his life. It turns out to be really funny as he helps/hinders his brother Ed Helms and his mother Susan Sarandon. Its a case of a really good cast giving an extra shine to decent material. Good film and its short!
Not a muppet...By HazelFairy (28 reviews) from Bedford , 01 May 2013This movie was beautifully and delicately short. Rather quirky, but had a way of making me genuinely engage with the characters and their intertwining storylines. It was wonderful to see Jason Segel play such a different role, rather simplistic and elegant style (as opposed to his 'out for laughs' roles). Bit of a slow burn - about 45mins in I contemplated popping it back in the envelope - but it was rather a chilled thing to watch late at night... soooo glad I continued watching, definitely well worth the view!
Slow BurnerBy a customer , 22 Apr 2013A slow burner of a film that doesn't really get going until the last five minutes. Quite cringe-worthy in places, that makes your want to shout out at the characters to sort their lives out, which ultimately they do... right at the end
