Jeff (Jason Segel) actually likes living at home with his mother, Sharon (Susan Sarandon), even though, at 30, he should be long gone. Jeff definitely personifies that hapless loser/slacker type, while his brother, Pat (Ed Helms) is the exact opposite. Unfortunately, Pat's life isn't much better, even though he's got a Porsche. That's because Pat also has a pretty nasty/mean wife, Linda (Judy Greer), who makes his life miserable at every turn -- and who may, or may not, be having an affair. 'Jeff, Who Lives at Home' was written and directed by brothers Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass ('Cyrus,' 'The Puffy Chair'). The movie also stars Rae Dawn Chong, Steve Zissis and Evan Ross.

Sharon: "Jeff, what do you do in the basement? You're not cleaning it."
Jeff: "You really want to know? You didn't like it last time we had this conversation..."
Sharon: "Okay no, you're right, I don't."

Just another strange, awkwardly funny conversation between a grown man and his mama...

Sharon: "All I want for my birthday is for you to get your a** off that couch, and you get on the bus, and you go to the Home Depot and you come home, you fix the shutter before I get home -- or you're going to find someplace else to live."
Jeff: "Fine."
Sharon: "Fine. Good. You got it? Do you understand."
Jeff: "Yes, mom, OKAY!"
Sharon: "Love you, goodbye."
Jeff: "Did you just hang up on me?"

Get wood glue. That's all Jeff's mom, Sharon, wants for her birthday. Leave the house, go buy the glue, fix the shutter. That sounds pretty simple, doesn't it? Nothing, however, is simple for Jeff.

Jeff: "I can't help but wonder about my fate, my destiny."

Here's the thing about Jeff: He might be a bit of a loser, living in his mom's basement at the age of 30 - but he's a dreamer, and he believes the universe is giving him signs about the direction his life should take.

Jeff (to Pat): "You ever feel like you were waiting forever to figure out what your destiny is?"
Pat: "What you just said sounded like Yoda took acid."

Pat thinks Jeff has a screw loose (and that might be true). He can't understand why Jeff seems to be stuck in a life holding pattern, never moving forward (or backwards).
