A smooth and subtle take on relationship drama-comedy

The story background seems like another classic of s man rebuilding his life after a sudden loss. The main focus on the family and relationship drama feels really nice. The way the movie's script depicts the many small things happening in Jake's life is really nice that it feels so subtle and smooth. The movie literally didn't have any increase or decrease in mood, and just dominantly play on a single track of story development. The smaller things seem unpredictable, although their consequences seem so very predictable once they have come on-screen. The acting overall is quite a good bit. Rose Byrne's acting still feels okay although the character doesn't really need much more development. Nick Kroll really gets the comedy side nicely, just at the right portion. Bobby Cannavale's acting really balances the whole set.

It's not really a Comedy than it is a Drama movie... the trailer was kinda misleading but overall the movie was just okay to be watched .

The movie starts really slow ,, not much comedy to laugh at ,, but the plot grows gradually until it peaks after the swimming pool "adult beginners" thingy. The screenplay is just okay ,, the writing seems to be getting involved much more with the drama than it is with the comedy ,, not much excitement or unpredictability, you can easily know where things are going in the movie. Honestly, the trailer was kinda misleading with all of these funny bits which seem to reflect the 5% comedy in the movie. As for the cast, Nick Kroll and Rose Byrne performances was fine they reflected the depressed newly parent pregnant woman and post- failing business guy. For me ,, and as a supposedly comedy movie,, the scenes with Jason Mantzoukas, Bobby Moynihan and Joel McHale had much more comedy and "giggles" than the leads. Overall,, the movie wen just okay,, for me it deserves no higher than 5 as a rating the IMDb average rating by 1,518 users is 5.5 which seems close enough ;)

Perfectly likable, albeit unoriginal, film by Nick Kroll and Co.

Jake is not awesome. Jake is also broke and now stuck living on his sister's air mattress in New Jersey in the independent comedy Adult Beginners. Adult Beginners appears to be judged a bit more harshly, and rather unjustly, due to individual viewers' biases against Nick Kroll. The plot may not be the most original, but the characters are real and identifiable, and as far as indie films go, a well done effort. Jake, played by Nick Kroll, is an entrepreneur behind the next big tech item. Unfortunately, its production is doomed and he is out his entire investment, his and several others' large venture capital. What does one do when they've failed in Manhattan? Why, go back to your family with your tail between your legs to the suburbs of New Jersey! His sister Justine, played by Rose Byrne, isn't completely pleased but agrees to let him stay for three months and watch her and her husband's (Bobby Cannavale) son. The plot has been done to death, and that is the only thing working against Adult Beginners as a film. The character types are also far from original, from the narcissistic protagonist to the less than perfect family he is forced to stay with. So, you may ask yourself, why bother watching the movie? Because, Adult Beginners is enjoyable. The drama of the story is not too serious so the film still has an 'escapist' effect. The writing is natural and fluid and the acting realistic and entertaining. The fun is in the medley of recognizable faces that make cameos throughout the film. It seems unfathomable that someone could hate Adult Beginners because it is a perfectly likable film, and is in fact, quite a nice watch and I would do it again.
