Movie Info

After struggling for years as an artist in New York City, Jake is calling it quits and returning home to Ohio. On his last day in the city, he persuades his three oldest friends to help him retrace their greatest adventure together: a walk down the entire length of Manhattan. But their attempt to reclaim the glory of their early 20s doesn't go quite as planned. Over the course of the day, buried conflicts emerge as Jake becomes embroiled with his ex-girlfriend and his friends dip into their own crises of manhood. GROWING UP AND OTHER LIES is an anti-coming-of-age comedy.(C) eOne

Critic Reviews for Growing Up and Other Lies

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

Mr. Jacobs and Mr. Grodsky have an extraordinary ear for the rhythms and nuances of everyday speech, as voices overlap, conversations take random directions, and casual remarks carry loaded subtexts.

"Growing Up and Other Lies" tells you right in the title it's not going to take maturing seriously, so it's not a surprise that the movie is unfocused and ineffective.

Cenac gives the most entertaining performance, but at the expense of making Gunderson so irredeemably obnoxious that it's impossible to believe he'd have any friends.

Intermittently amusing but rarely as funny as it wants to be.

March 18, 2015 | Full Review…

Although the film is supposedly about movement, Growing Up And Other Lies frequently stalls out, and whole patches of it grind on without momentum or purpose.

March 18, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

"Growing Up & Other Lies" instead feels like a really long beer commercial, except beer commercials usually contain at least one witty idea.
