Adult Beginners movie quotes follow one man who loses everything then goes to live with his sister, brother-in-law and nephew. The comedy film was written by Nick Kroll, Jeff Cox and Liz Flahire. Ross Katz directed the movie, which opened in theaters on April 24, 2015.

In Adult Beginners, Jake (Nick Kroll) is putting his life back together after his business failed leaving him penniless. He decides to move in with his estranged sister Justine (Rose Byrne), brother-in-law Danny (Bobby Cannavale) and nephew Teddy (Caleb and Matthew Paddock).

Part of the agreement of staying with his sister's family involves Jake watching Teddy, something that Jake knows nothing about. He makes the best of it and he and Teddy have fun but it does't take long for Jake to overstay his welcome. With little of his former life available to return to, Jake has to decide the next step in his journey, one that might involve finally becoming a real adult.

Adult Beginners brings some laughter to theaters already filled with movies such as The Water Diviner, The Age of Adaline True Story, Ex Machina and The Longest Ride.
