Jason Segel plays Jeff, a mopey guy in his 30s still living at home with his mom (Susan Sarandon). He gets a strange phone call looking for somebody named Kevin, and because he thinks everything is a sign after seeing Mel Gibson’s Signs, he goes on a day-long quest in search of the Kevin he is destined to know. His quest leads him to his brother, Pat (Ed Helms), who is having the worst day of his life. Segel and Helms bounce off each other nicely in this pleasant effort from the brothers Jay and Mark Duplass (Cyrus). Rae Dawn Chong shows up as Sarandon’s friendly co-worker, as does Judy Greer as Pat’s wife. It’s a good ensemble film that gives Segel a chance to play a mellower version of his goofy screen persona.
