Jeff, Who Lives at Home
About three months ago LaRue read an article in the Deseret News about a movie that was coming out. She said it sounded interesting and we should watch for it to hit the theaters. But it never came to Vernal.
Here's a link to the Deseret News article.
And you can visit the official site to see the trailer: Jeff, Who Lives at Home trailer
Here's some of the write-up from Amazon:
A wrong number and an infomercial conspire to send Jeff, who may smoke a bit too much pot, on a quest for signs from the universe that will lead him to his destiny--which might involve helping his obnoxious brother Pat discover his long-suffering wife Linda in an adulterous affair.
As slacker Jeff stumbles towards enlightenment, he uncovers answers to his nagging familyâ€™s problems. Jeff has no idea where heâ€™s going but when he finally gets there, he might just find out what itâ€™s all about in this â€œgem of a movie that is funny, tender and ultimately moving.â€
I had forgotten about it until the other day when I happened to go to a 7-11 and saw that Redbox had this movie. Of course, we rented it.
It's rated R for language. A lot of language. More f-bombs than rice at a wedding.
At first I really didn't care for Jeff's brother, but as the movie progresses you see him change and in the end he's a pretty likable fellow whom you are rooting for.
There is a lot more depth to this film than you would think and probably deserves a second viewing.
