(R)Ben Stiller is annoying as hell, but he's supposed to be in this odd, but compelling tale of a depressed man's journey from doing nothing to maybe doing something by Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale). Rhys Ifans is good as the best friend and Greta Gerwig is excellent as the new friend. Maddening, convincing, pretty good. The ending will drive some of you crazy, but all of the pieces are there, so it's not a cheat. 107 minutes.
