Movie Summary

A fresh-faced couple, Jeff (Neil Patrick Harris) and Samantha (Bonnie Somerville) must go to great lengths in order to get their daughter into a New York City private kindergarten. An oddball consultant, Sue Lemon (Amy Sedaris), gets them an interview, but it's based on a lie: that Jeff is a renowned poet.
