Rating: 7/10

Sure there are a few laughs, but, for the most part, Greenberg is a drifting, plotless character study of a really unlikable guy. The title character is played by Ben Stiller. Stiller for me, like Robin Williams, is always difficult to accept in non-comedic roles (Oh my god, Mork was the real killer!). I was able to look beyond the questionable casting because the film comes across as a mild indictment of hipsterism and self centered slackers.
