Updating Brad’s Status

Couldn’t bring myself to seeing at a movie in the theater today, so I ended up renting a flick from RedBox.  At some point in the morning I realized that Brad’s Status, a recent Ben Stiller flick, was on DVD.  Say what you will, but Stiller has made some astounding smaller-movie choices.  Brad’s Status is one of them.  The movie follows a father and son as they go on a college tour . . . and the interior journey Stiller’s character goes through in the process.

Here’s a clip from early in the movie, when Stiller’s character learns that his son has a real chance of getting into Harvard.

As much as anything else, Brad’s Status is an interesting flip-side to While We’re Young, another great “getting older” movie that Stiller starred in (and also worth seeing, too).
