Under The RadarBy manonfireuk (301 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

Not a muppet...By HazelFairy (26 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
A warm and funny independent filmBy heatonfan (7 reviews) from Manchester , 23 Feb 2013A slow burning film, but the characters grow and eventually engage the viewer. It is not a belly laugh comedy, but it is funny and engaging. The scene near the start where Pat sits down to breakfast with his wife is brilliant, but maybe more so if you are or have been married! Susan Sarandon conveys the cubicle hell of her workplace (and maybe life) well as we see a surprising development in her lovelife. The finish is heartwarming but not twee. Well worth watching, but I suspect it is for 25+: I suspect I may not have enjoyed it in my younger years.
Charming indie flickBy ChloeS (1 review) , 10 Feb 2013I rented this as I am a big fan of Jason Segel, mostly due to the much more well known comedies he stars in. However, I love low budget and indie style movies so this one caught my attention. I am so glad it did as it was fantastic. A little slow maybe to start, but stick with it as the pay off at the end is superb. Definitely worth a watch.
Low key and lovely.By Applewalker (24 reviews) , 06 Feb 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]I loved this film. Its not a Hollywood blockbuster, so no banging and crashing and explosions but the characters are 'beautifully human' and endear themselves to you with their flaws and their good points. The story slowly unfolds, and by the end you're really rooting for them all to reach all their hearts desires, which are just our normal life's wishes, no sort of holy grail quests or whatever. Lovely stuff.
