Lots of drugs. Lots of sexuality. Lacks a story. Slow moving. Boring. Not good for children. Characters are shallow.

Absolutely awful. Ben Stiller is totally wasted in this pathetic, badly written and acted film. Unless you are a masochist or don't care how many brain cells you kill, don't see this film.

This plays out like a slacker movie but with a 40 + year old instead of a 20 something. Stiller does his usual neurotic schtick and pretty much everyone else in the movie turns in good performances as his supporting cast. The movie is all Stiller, and not silly funny. Tackles serious themes with interjected humor.

I gave this movie an average rating. Sometimes I enjoy watching slow moving, true to life stories. It definitely kept my interest, though it was like eavesdropping on somebody's conversation and not getting any real insights. I would have given it a higher rating, but I have a very hard time forgiving a TERRIBLE ending. It felt as if they suddenly stopped filming.

Amusing, worth watching if you like observing people. No "Punch" but interesting. Hence 3/5 stars for me (above average).

It's sort of like these "european-real-life-movies" (boring to some), except with a bit more amusing / entertaining moments.

This movie had a few good parts but they were few and far between. Maybe I would have liked this more if I didn't go into it thinking I was going to laugh. This movie is very long and drawn out, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

Our main character Roger Greenberg is not funny. The cast around him is interesting, but not good enough to redeem the rest of the movie. I agree with whomever said "the character has no redeeming values". Greenberg felt long from 10 minutes in. All in all, the story can be summed up in 20 minutes, but they drag it out to 109 minutes. NO NEED!

Very disappointing. I thought I'd be seeing Stiller do something meaningful.

Roger Greenberg: Dear Starbucks, in your attempt to manufacture culture out of fast food coffee you've been surprisingly successful for the most part. The part that isn't covered by 'the most part' sucks.

Roger Greenberg: The thing about you kids is that you're all kind of insensitive. I'm glad I grew up when I did cos your parents were too perfect at parenting- all that baby Mozart and Dan Zanes songs; you're just so sincere and interested in things! There's a confidence in you guys that's horrifying. You're all ADD and carpal tunnel. You wouldn't know Agoraphobia if it bit you in the ass, and it makes you mean. You say things to someone like me who's older and smarter with this light air... I'm freaked out by you kids. I hope I die before I end up meeting one of you in a job interview.

Florence Marr: You like old things.
Roger Greenberg: A shrink said to me once that I have trouble living in the present, so I linger on the past because I felt like I never really lived it in the first place, you know?
