Walter Pearce (Ray Liotta) has a good family. Paul (Brendan Fehr) asks for his daughter Chloe (Rachel Blanchard)'s hand in marriage. It overwhelms him and he reveals his affair with secretary Nisha. His wife Deborah (Glenne Headly) throws him and his stuff out of the house. Meanwhile, their next door neighbor high school star Skylar Eckerman (Shaun Sipos) gets a football-ending injury. Both Skylar and Walter get arrested for separate incidents. Walter's other daughter Christine (Brooke Nevin) returns to town to bail both of them out. With Skylar's parents out of town, Walter stays with Skylar and much too close for Deborah's taste. Skylar had broken Christine's heart before. Walter is desperate to win back his wife and the grumpy Skylar is convinced to help. Both find growth as real men.

The story is very sitcomy. I do love all the actors in this but it's also hard to root for Walter. Liotta's intensity makes him an odd comedic choice. His cheating puts him in a hole and it's a struggle to climb out of that hole. He doesn't always make it easy. Bruce McCulloch of 'The Kids in the Hall' does both writing and directing duties. There are some edgier material. There are little sparks of humor but it doesn't exceed beyond a flat sitcom.
