Jason Segal (“The Muppets”) stars in an indie from the “mumblecore” Duplass brothers (“The Puffy Chair”), about what happens when “Jeff, Who Lives at Home” goes, as movie heroes have always gone, on a quest. In this case, it is just a quest to buy some glue for his mom (Susan Sarandon) and he is accompanied by this brother (Ed Helms).
