Under The RadarBy manonfireuk (407 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

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 (31 reviews) , 06 Feb 2013I 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.
Quirky - in a good wayBy MelBarren (6 reviews) , 01 Feb 2013This is a film you will feel affectionate towards. All the character's various dysfunctions are sympathetically portrayed (Ed Helms's performance is particularly enjoyable), there are genuine funny moments, and I was pleasantly surprised. You could do a lot worse than settle down to watch this film one evening. It's a little gem.
Humorous and ultimately touching, but no big belly laughsBy a customer , 10 Jan 2013Not what I would call a 'comedy' as billed, but it was in turns both slightly humorous and touching, and Segal and Sarandon were, as expected, excellent. One of those films where not a huge amount happens and yet the events of the film touch the characters and the audience watching. Personally I really enjoyed it, but I can see that it wouldn't appeal to all. Don't go into it expecting the belly laughs and silliness of some of Segal's other work, but if you go into it expecting a quirky, ultimately touching journey through a day in the lives of these characters then you should enjoy it.
