Modern day American relationship comedy. Life used to be easy for slacker Tom Reilly (Zach Braff) - his wife Sofia (Amanda Peet) was happy to be the breadwinner. Now they have a baby, Sofia wants to stay at home and Tom needs to take up the slack. Due to getting fired from his first job in New York, Tom's forced to accept a job from his father-in-law (Charles Grodin) across country in Ohio. It's not the ideal start for Tom as he soon makes an enemy of Sofia's paraplegic old school heartthrob Chip Sanders (Jason Bateman). On top of that Sofia now has second thoughts about staying at home with the baby. If they're going to get their life back in order they'll have to decide what they really want, and fast.
