Are You Here is a 2014 American comedy film directed by Matthew Weiner. The film stars Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis and Amy Poehler.


Two childhood best friends embark on a road trip back to their hometown after one of them learns he has inherited a large sum of money from his recently deceased estranged father.



Filming began on May 7, 2012, in Yadkinville, North Carolina.[1] On April 11, 2014, it was announced that Millennium Entertainment is near to close the distribution deal of the film.[2]


A poster for the film was revealed on June 4, 2014,[3] followed by an official trailer of the film on June 5, 2014.[4]


The film premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival in September.[5]


Are You Here has been met with generally negative reviews from critics. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a rating of 7%, based on 41 reviews, with an average rating of 3.5/10. The site's general consensus reads: "Given the amount of talent assembled on both sides of the camera, Are You Here falls bewilderingly flat."[6] On Metacritic, the film earned a score of 37 out of 100, based on 22 critics, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews".[7]

The film received a grade C from A.V. Club writer Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, who commented on its bland stylistic choices but praises Weiner's ability to get good performances from his actors.[8]
