Noah Baumbach's comedy-drama While We're Young stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia, a childless New York married couple in their mid-forties. As their other friends all start having children, the duo gravitate toward a young hipster couple named Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried). He's an aspiring documentary filmmaker, a vocation Josh already has. Soon, the older couple begin enjoying the energy they feel hanging out with the younger generation, but eventually Josh begins to suspect his new best friend might not be as straightforward and trustworthy as he thought.

I thought the film was very pleasant to watch and the acting was pretty good.

Great acting and writing in this enjoyable story of a couple adjusting well to their thirties.

The best parts of this movie were in the previews.

Not to bad of a movie I have seen much worse! Kind of boring though not much action!

Many will (and do) dislike this movie. While I'm not always a fan of Noah Baumbach's films, I thought this one worked well. I recommend it for people who like independent films and the show Girls, since the tone is somewhat similar. The movie gets bonus points from me for having Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock from the Beastie Boys) in a supporting role; he did a good job. While We're Young is rated R for language.

I only was able to watch the first twenty minutes before getting bored. It seemed to be a story with potential but just delivered in a very drab way

Wow... what a disappointment...such a stellar cast...but the story and everything about this movie is very boring!

Described as "genuinely hilarious". We kept fast forwarding trying to find anything remotely funny. Just a lot of yak, yak.

Aside from a convincing performance by Adam Driver, the rest of the movie was of little consequence. If one needs to have lived the same experience as the one shown on-screen to see the humour in it, then perhaps the "wit" in the writing was never really there to begin with. An artsy New York movie for/about people who find themselves fascinating.

I got five minutes into this movie and got turned off by the stupid amount of swearing. Unneeded. If that's the best they can do for dialogue for a 'comedy' then get a different writer.

"I just finished watching a six-and-a-half-hour film that felt seven hours too long."

"Jamie and I always ask how are we going to get old, and the answer is, just like everyone else."

"So . . . arthritis arthritis?"
"I usually just say it once."

From IMDb:

Doctor: You have arthritis in your knee.
Josh: Arthritis arthritis?
Doctor: Yes. I usually just say it once.
Cornelia: I wish you'd look at me the way you look at Jamie and Darby. When we first met, you wooed me with romantic e-mails.
Josh: It wouldn't make sense for me to send you e-mails now that we're in the same room all the time.
Cornelia: My dad likes saying, "The more, the more."
Josh: That's because your dad has everything and then he gets more.
Cornelia: It's like their apartment is full of everything we once threw out, but it looks so good the way they have it.

"After Josh (Stiller) and his wife Cornelia (Watts) meet a free-spirited twenty-something couple (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried), they adopt a new lifestyle complete with hip-hop dance classes and mind-expanding parties. But with each hilarious attempt to act young, Josh and Cornelia start to appreciate the rewards of growing old together." -DVD Case
