Feckless 30-year-old Jeff (Segel), a firm believer in synchronicity, heads out to buy some wood glue for his long-suffering mother (Sarandon), only to become embroiled in the marital breakdown of his brother (Helms) and sister-in-law (Greer).
There’s undoubtedly comedy mileage in an irreverent sending up of the Signs/Magnolia school of everything-is-connected philosophy. Despite the calibre of the cast, the Duplass brothers mostly fail to find it.
