If you're expecting a flat-out comedy, look elseware. The film meanders along but overall, I liked it - Signs, the name Kevin, a Porche, a secret crush at work, an affair - all these little things add up to one fine movie.

I am a big fan of both Ed Helms and Jason Segel, which is why I think I liked this movie. Other than that, it is flat.

Totally not what I thought this film was going to be like. With Segel and Helms, I thought for sure this was going to be a comedy, boy was I wrong. It actually wasn't bad, but it just caught me off guard. It's the first film of 2012 that I've seen, but it should get a screenplay nomination, I know it's early, but what an original script.

Der arme Jeff. Er ist 30, nicht verheiratet oder liiert, unausgebildet und wohnt bei seiner Mutter im Keller. Dort raucht er Pott und schaut sich den Film Signs immer und immer wieder an - bis er selbst glaubt, Zeichen zu erblicken. Womöglich ist das der Schlüssel zum Universum? Jeff jedenfalls meint, man müsste nur den Zeichen folgen und das eigene Schicksal würde sich zum Guten wenden. Eine Logik, die aufgeht nach zehn Jahren Pot... Jeff (Jason Segal) lebt also ziellos, während sein Bruder Pat (Ed Helms) gefangen ist in einer leblosen Ehe. Seine Frau Linda (Judy Greer) spart Geld an für ein Eigenheim, dass Pat wieder ausgibt für einen Porsche - der ja im übertragenen Sinne eine nützliche Anschaffung sei! Selten hat ein Dialog soviel ausgesagt über die Ehe! Immerhin hat er den Porsche nu...

Trying to find his purpose in life, Jeff, who have stayed on their basement receives a call looking for "Kevin", from there he starts his journey. He meets his brother on his way leading him to tracking down his sister-in-law's alleged love affair with another man.

This is boring. Nothing is new. Jason delivered pretty well, and the rest of the actors. The story is there but nothing really gave a kick! I was waiting, waiting, and waiting for what that "Kevin" means. I think it would be better if all the tracking down, following of Kevin, was more extraordinary, or something adventurous, you know, it's a comedy anyway. With car explosion, police chasing, wild animals running, or anything like that. Also, ***SPOILER ALERT*** their mom's secret admirer subplot was a waste, it has not...
