Movie Summary

From the producer of SIDEWAYS, get to know a lovable yet dysfunctional family everyone can relate to in this lighthearted comedy PEOPLE calls "smart and enjoyable." When Lawrence Wetherhold (Dennis Quaid), a widowed and self-absorbed professor, falls for his attractive former student (SEX AND THE CITY's Sarah Jessica Parker), his all-too-predictable life suddenly turns sunny-side up. That is, until his freeloading brother (Thomas Hayden Church) and his sharp-tongued overachieving daughter (JUNO's Ellen Page) speak up, making "chaos" the word of the day.
