If you strug­gle with slight com­edy or the lack­lus­tre pace that indie films of­ten tell their sto­ries with, you may have to re­think in­vest­ing time in this dose of melan­cholic dram­edy. Star­ring two strong com­edy tal­ents it tells the tale of two broth­ers – the lost- in- fa­tal­is­tic- thought doper Jeff ( Ja­son Segel) and his un­hap­pily mar­ried brother Pat ( Ed Helms) – who end up fol­low­ing the ap­par­ent clues the uni­verse is giv­ing them ( Jeff’s idea) while track­ing Pat’s seem­ingly adul­ter­ous wife. Comed­i­cally it’s light- on but it’s emo­tion­ally en­gag­ing even if a lit­tle too dra­mat­i­cally con­trived.
