Dispatched from his basement room on an errand for his mother, 30-something slacker Jeff (Segel) might discover his destiny (finally) when he spends the day with his brother (Helms) as he tracks his possibly adulterous wife. It’s due out in the UK on April 20th, but for now enjoy the trailer and new poster.
