Noah Baumbach's best movie since 2005's The Squid and the Whale, While We're Young navigates into more mainstream territory while losing none of the writer-director's rueful wit. Oddly enough, the comedy's major weakness is that it's over-plotted, hardly an issue with such Baumbach flawed-character studies as Frances Ha and Greenberg.

The latter film's star, Ben Stiller, returns here as Josh, a documentarian whose current project has long been stalled. He's married to Cornelia (Naomi Watts), who produces the work of her father, Leslie (Charles Grodin), an elder statesman of the documentary realm.
