Adult Beginners (2015)



Critic Consensus: Perfectly pleasant yet never particularly engaging, Adult Beginners is a mild middle-of-the-road comedy content to coast on the charms of its talented cast.

Movie Info

A young, hipster entrepreneur (Nick Kroll) crashes and burns on the eve of his company's big launch. With his entire life in disarray, he leaves Manhattan to move in with his estranged pregnant sister (Rose Byrne), brother-in-law (Bobby Cannavale) and three year-old nephew in the suburbs - only to become their manny. Faced with real responsibility, he may finally have to grow up - but not without some bad behavior first. (C) Radius

"Adult Beginners" doesn't reinvent the comeuppance comedy, and it's a better movie because of it.

Since leaving his beloved "Kroll Show" Nick Kroll has been striving to show critics and fans alike that he is more than just a character actor. Between his show, his other show "The League," and some indie faire in the past, Kroll is fast becoming a household name and one to watch. Kroll actually helped write the original story for this film, executive produced it, and stars, which is complemented with a stellar cast and some dark comedy.

A very good film that tells how a fall from grace can help you learn what is really important in life.
