Kinski's teenage son runs away from home in LA, after yet another row with dad. She calls old boyfriend Crystal, informs him he has a son, and suggests he go find the kid. Then she calls old boyfriend Williams, and informs him that he has a son, etc. Crystal's the relatively straight guy, a self-centred lawyer with a taste for time-saving social shortcuts, Williams - somewhat restrained - his goofier accomplice, a wimpy failed writer who flaps and emotes. Writers Ganz and Mandell (Parenthood, City Slickers) go pleasingly light on the syrup and sentimentality. A remake of Francis Verber's Les Compères (1983).
