Roger Greenberg (Ben Stiller), single, fortyish and at a crossroads in his life, finds himself in Los Angeles, house-sitting for six weeks for his more successful/married-with-children brother. In search of a place to restart his life, Greenberg tries to reconnect with old friends including his former bandmate Ivan (Rhys Ifans). But old friends aren't necessarily still best friends, and Greenberg soon finds himself spending more and more time with his brother's personal assistant Florence (Greta Gerwig), an aspiring singer and also something of a lost soul. Despite his best attempts not to be drawn in, Greenberg and Florence manage to forge a connection, and Greenberg realizes he may at last have found a reason to be happy.
This was one of the worst movies I have ever seen! Soooo boring.... I found myself wanting to read a book during the movie. No point to this movie at all.... it is supposed to be artistic but it is just painful. Save your money! This movie is a NO star!
This was the worst movie ever. I'll be amazed if Ben stiller ever works again. It was so drab and dry, no humour what so ever. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.
Although the critics seem to love this movies, it's a frustrating, annoying, and boring movie, with a completely lackluster ending. Certainly not a comedy. The main character is an idiot and makes you dislike him more as the movie progresses and you wonder why the woman he keeps seeing continues to be attracted to him. If you want to watch a slice of somebody's stumbling life tribulations and pretend that it's a wonderful "art piece" then this is for you... otherwise skip it and look for entertainment elsewhere.
