10 Great 2012 Movies You Can Watch Right Now

Jeff, Who Lives at Home

It’s not so much that Paramount mis-marketed this warm comedy/drama from the Duplass Brothers as they under-marketed it; it looks like a likable stoner comedy, but there’s much more going on here than that. As with their underrated 2010 effort Cyrus, Jeff has a premise that seems built for a big, dumb comedy, but the incisive filmmakers burrow deeper, digging out the pathos and disappointments underneath. Intelligent, well-developed, and laugh-out-loud funny.
