JASON NASH IS MARRIED​ is a fearless comedy that also manages to explore the difficulty of separation and divorce without being too mawkish or jokey. It strikes a nice balance; a comedy that explores awkward situations in the same manner as shows such as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Maron, and Louie. Although some of the awkwardness mined out of the situations feels similar to what happens in the aforementioned TV shows, what makes this stand out is the emotional vulnerability at play as Nash is unafraid to discuss the pain and sadness that accompany the painful process of a marriage falling apart.

This movie does not explore divorce from a "family" point of view but from the point of view of the husband and father in the situation. As such, the way the topic is presented makes this movie best for older teens and parents, because much of the humor and situations will go over the heads of younger kids. This movie also is a showcase of the star performers of the "alternative" Los Angeles comedy scene in recent decades -- there are literally at least a dozen cameos from somewhat well-known and hilarious comedic performers -- so fans of Mr. Show and Upright Citizens Brigade and comics such as Patton Oswalt will also find much to enjoy in this emotionally raw yet still funny comedy.
