Put-upon television writer Ned (Schreiber) is stuck in a sexless marriage, must deal with the fact that his son (Ezra Miller) is gay, and has to care for his curmudgeonly, incontinent father-in-law (Brian Dennehy). It's enough to drive this everyman into the arms of a hot-to-trot coworker (Gugino); will he succumb to temptation? Richard Levine's dramedy not only gives Ned's middle-class crises a static, by-the-numbers treatment, it also feels compelled to adopt a ridiculously righteous moral tone when, say, Ned regales his kid with cautionary tales about sex-crazed older men---which then, plot-conveniently, come true. Even Eddie Izzard's turn as a sensation-crazed TV executive can't save this half-baked affirmation of family values.
