Most of the scene seems deliberate, yet as a one film, very enjoyable.

It's like a lot of these movies nowadays where it makes people's lives out to be so miserable and boring and the movie it's just aren't about motivating people and making them feel good anymore.

Very well made, entertaining movie.

Despite the negative reviews this movie has been getting, I personally enjoyed it.

This film falls in that late coming of age slash cali-alt humor genre.. King of Cali, everything must go, seeking a friend, or jeff who lives at home mold.

Hopelessly contrived and frequently predictable .

Yeah, thats what I thought this movie was going to be like, dull, cheap repetitive comedy, no climax, terrible plot.

It Briskly Tells the Tale in a Smart, Often Engaging Unfolding of a Suicidal Mid-Life Crisis Taking On a Surprising Enlightenment to Our Protagonist Who Discovers Many Misconceptions and is Rewarded New Insight on the Complexity of the Human Condition.

So, you can watch it if you're bored.

He seemed to have a dumb look on his face throughout the film and the love story was predictable and badly put together.

The thing that was most disappointing was Seann William Scott because his acting was quite dull and depressing at times.

I truly enjoyed it.

Seann William Scott plays a milquetoast Everyman who is bored with his painfully ordinary existence and decides to settle a few personal scores before committing suicide.

The story is an amalgamation of standard dysfunctional family tropes, but spun into an interesting and engaging yarn about dealing with the past and coming to terms with the present.

Great & Entertaining comedy/drama for all!!.

It opens with a very bland monologue that has you edging towards the remote.

The subplots abound and at times feel a little preachy, but the film still has it's heart in the right place and it's never, ever dull.

A truly unexpected find this film was.

Well worth watching.

It is at once funny, sad and entertaining.

The film has just too much contrived zany characters and although the film finds it soft centre eventually it does it with a lot of wonkiness and without much laughs.

The movie started of smoothly but in a mysterious intriguing way ...

It only achieves to be tasteless and in most places downright boring.

I would have rated it higher, it just took too long to get to where it was going and I think the writing was just too bland.

Very enjoyable film.

His entire life has been a string of boring safe choices and none of them have led him anywhere near happiness.

And it was;but in an unexpected way.

Just Before I Go is one of the silliest, pointless films I have ever watched.

It bites off a little more than it can chew, but it's still a very funny and enjoyable film that could barely catch the back-end of a top 25 for 2015 if this year keeps on stinkin'

Although predictable- especially in the end, the journey we see the character going through from start to finish is worth the watch.

Also the movie would probably have benefited from not having the gay-boy storyline at all - it's not bad per se, but makes the whole movie feel kind of trite and tired - "same old, same old.

It's quite transparent and obvious, but equally entertaining, well paced and emotional, with quite a few pretty hilarious moments.

"Just Before I Go" is hopelessly contrived and frequently predictable.

I recommend this to anyone who wants a good night of sitting and watching a very entertaining movie.

Really enjoyable heartwarming film .

Ted Morgan (Seann William Scott) struggles with a middling empty life.

Entertaining and more meaningful than expected.

As for the movie itself it really was enjoyable and I somehow felt better for having given Cox about 2 hours of my life.

Definitely a recommendation for a dull evening, especially if you're feeling blue.
