Bickering, adventure, road trip, and a few surprises ensue featuring lawyer & heir as they encounter an eclectic array of interesting characters from his past, eventually leading to an opportunity for him to reflect on his lifestyle.

Whatever good intentions were behind this film, they are lost in the finished product. Never having seen it before, we took a chance because of Denis Leary, a talented actor, caught in the middle of this insipid comedy. As directed by Victoria Hochberg, this film doesn't go anywhere.
The worst thing going for the film is Elizabeth Hurley. As Anna, we figured out immediately she ties in with the childhood scene at the beginning of the film. The premise to seek redemption from all the women Doug has been mean to, is ridiculous at best. The two stars have no charisma in their scenes together. Laughter is absent from this movie.
Denis Leary has done much better and it's hard to imagine what might have attracted to a script that doesn't do anything for Mr. Leary's resume.
A film to be watched at the viewer's own peril.
