2012 Guide Analysis: "After decent success with their first studio effort "Cyrus", indie film comedy darlings Mark and Jay Duplass moved right along to this gentler New Orleans-shot story of two brothers with very different work ethics and personalities.
Segel plays a slacker who never got over his father's death and sits about getting stoned. In contrast Helms plays an overachiever whose marriage is about to collapse. Throw in Greer as Helms' potentially unfaithful wife and Sarandon as their mother who has been getting love notes, and you have a part mystery and part cute little contemplation piece on destiny.
The Duplass reportedly held onto the script for years in the hopes of doing it one day, and now with the bigger budget on offer they've done it the way they intended. Jason Reitman and John Malkovich produced the feature which screened at Toronto to good but not great reviews, the most common complaint being that it's almost too light weight."
