Dysfunctional American family comedy that examines the improbable rejuvenation of widowed English professor Lawrence Wetherhold (Quaid). Contemptuous, irascible, narcissistic and detached from his children (Ashton Holmes and Ellen Page), Wetherhold's feckless adopted brother Chuck (Church) and ER doctor Janet Hartigan (Parker) attempts to rescue him from his isolation are scuppered by the lack of chemistry between the two romantic leads.
