John and Dean Solomon may have Ph.D.s, but they're socially inept after their widowed father home-schooled them in Antarctica. When their beloved dad falls into a coma, they hatch a plan to revive him using a positive emotional shock - giving him a grandchild. They find a surrogate mom through Craig's list - she's Janine, a penniless local musician, with a large, intimidating boyfriend, James. The pregnancy gives the Solomons nine months to learn to be parents. In a side story, John pursues Tara, a neighbor who takes care of their dad when John and Dean are out; but she has no interest in John. Can the boys keep Janine and James happy, keep dad alive, and learn to be dads? Written by

A walkie-talkie appears, disappears and reappears during a scene in the brother's apartment. When John asks Tara to go to a movie, he places the walkie-talkie onto the medical equipment between her and his father's bed. As he leaves the apartment, the walkie-talkie isn't seen anywhere near Tara. When Janine talks to Tara about the Brothers Solomon and Dean overhears Tara call them "losers", the walkie-talkie has returned to its place on the medical equipment. See more »
This movie is more than watchable, as in, I didn't check my facebook more than 4 times the entire movie. I especially like the part when they try to watch a movie while their father is on the same circuit breaker and the power goes off. Now that's comedy. Man In Motion song is repeated, with dignity, throughout. I almost gave this movie a seven, but then re-though my decision for an eight. I am giving this movie a review after all. Silly, stupid comedy is fab. check 'er out! The review board is saying I must write ten lines of text to submit a review so here we go... Also watch... Wet hot American summer,waking ned devine, drowning mona,and jaws more than seven thousand times in your life and all will be well.
