Top Cat - The MovieJeff Who Lives At Home
[15, 14+]
Running Time: 83 mins
Year Produced: 2012
Director: Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass
Cast: Susan Sarandon, Judy Greer, Jason Segel, Ed Helms

Jason Segel plays Jeff, a 30-year-old basement-dwelling slacker who is, to be kind, something of an underachiever. His go-getting (at least in his own eyes) brother has his own problem: a possibly unfaithful wife. And their mum has more than two unhappy boys on her hands, with secret, admiring messages popping up on her work computer. This follows the by-now familiar figure of the “man-who-won’t-grow-up”, but instead of celebrating immaturity, the warm and quirky comedy looks at the difficulties of responsibility, whatever age you are, and the desire to avoid the pain associated with growing up.
