Brad's Status

Rated 14 Accompaniment (Coarse Language, Mature Theme) ~ Runs 102 minutes

Dir.: Mike White, US

Ben Stiller, Austin Abrams, Jenna Fischer

“Brad (Ben Stiller) is having some kind of mid-life crisis. He’s taking his son Troy on a tour of colleges, a rite of passage that seems to have triggered in Brad an avalanche of insecurity and discontent. The worst of it is that his own college friends - played by Michael Sheen, Jemaine Clement, Luke Wilson and writer/director Mike White - have all gone on to be fabulously rich and famous. As the story progresses, Brad discovers that his buddies continue to meet at weddings and funerals - events to which he’s no longer invited. Much of this is told in voice-over by Brad himself, whose exaggerated ideas about his friends’ lives are fabulous and funny. And painful. Poor Brad. Never mind his lovely life and his wonderful family. He’s so wound into his own pity party that he has failed to notice his son’s musical genius; news that Troy will likely get into Harvard triggers Brad’s paternal pride at last - as well as his sense of male competition. Ben Stiller plays the neurotic well, and he is excellent here as Brad; Austin Abrams is fantastic as the laid-back son with a clear-eyed vision of how the world works. When father and son encounter a couple of Troy’s music friends, one of them finally holds up a mirror for Brad, showing him how ludicrous his concerns are. Redemption is not out of the question. Brad’s Status is an inky black comedy about the white noise in your head that says you’re just not good enough. Like other of filmmaker Mike White’s works, this subversive journey will make you squirm with discomfort; it’s very funny, but in some moments it’s also disturbing. And familiar. Brad may be a jerk, but he’s a jerk you’ll recognize. Make no mistake about that” - Liz Braun, The Toronto Sun
