Baumbach's films have to do with married people exclusively, so if you're not married either happily or unhappily you're liable to find them a bit monotone. Good acting from Stiller and Watts.

"What's the opposite of "The world is your oyster"?" asks the 40-something, not-very-successful documentary director Josh (Ben Stiller) of his wife Cornelia (Naomi Watts). This quote captures the anxious feel of this comedy about getting older by Noah Baumbach. The couple vacillates between settling down & starting a family vs. jumping headlong into the adventurous, hipster lifestyle of their new young friends (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried). You'll thoroughly enjoy their exploration of 'rowing north' and laugh/cringe at (and with) them.

Too much angst.

Good cast, some funny parts...but this didn't really grab me. Could have been much, much better. Fell asleep in some parts!

Yuppies vs millennials in the age of F***book... Perhaps Woody Allen would have made this more fun n' relevant...?

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.

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.

Josh: I like our life as it is.

Cornelia: Yeah. I mean if we wanted to take off to Paris tomorrow we could.

Josh: If we're gonna do it, we should plan it with at least a month in advance.

Cornelia: A month is still in the realm of spontaneity.

"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
