This musical drama stars Ben Stiller, and is about a man named Brad Sloan who is relatively content with his life and his career, but can’t help wondering if he would be happier if he had the busy and successful lives of his friends from college. After reconnecting with them, however, he starts to wonder if he is actually the most successful one after all. This movie definitely has a main character that will annoy you sometimes with his ego-maniac personality, but at the same time, he will find a way to grow on you. This movie is very fitting for many as it combines comedy with drama and psychology, making it an interesting film all around. I would rate this movie 4/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Slow pace, self pity, mid life crisis. Stop watching after 30 mins.

The message is clear, the character is like someone many of us have encountered but irritatingly overplayed.

Non-stop self-pity and mid-life crisis angst.

what everyone else is saying.... I thought it'd get better.... wallowing in self pity despite abounding privilege... mid life crisis that is EXHAUSTING to watch... hoping main character completes the journey or improves but he doesn't... seriously, even tho this movie was free I still feel ripped off. just pass on this

If you want to hear the internal dialogue of a mid-life crisis - here you go. If not, you probably want to pass on this.

Stiller's play this depressed husband/father. Because of his out of mind adventures the movie was a bust.

A man having a mid-life crisis by comparing his life to the perceived success of his college friends. I enjoyed this thought provoking movie.

I watched this movie fully intending for it to improve. It never does. If you really want to know the definition of white skin privilege watch this movie. The main character, a 40 something white man, a man upset that his college buddies are making millions, a man who was able to afford to pay for college, is going on a college tour with his son, who he is paying to attend Harvard. Yeah. I really feel sorry for him.
