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.

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 …
