About a guy whose life didn't quite turn out how he wanted it to and wishes he could go back to high school and change it. He wakes up one day and is seventeen again and gets the chance to rewrite his life.
A look at love through the eyes of five interconnected couples experiencing the thrills and surprises of having a baby, and ultimately coming to understand the universal truth that no matter what you plan for, life doesn't always deliver what's expected.
Kassie (Jennifer Aniston) and Wally (Jason Bateman) are best friends. Being unlucky in love, Kassie has decided to have a child using artificial insemination. Wally doesn't like this idea, but he isn't capable of admitting to himself, let alone to Kassie, that he's in love with her. At Kassie's artificial insemination party, Wally gets very drunk and spies the sperm donor's sample in the bathroom. Wally was way too drunk to know what he did that night, and Kassie has moved away because she doesn't feel that New York City is a place to raise a child. Now 7 years later, Kassie has moved back with her son Sebastian. While she is looking to get Roland (the sperm donor) more involved in their lives, Wally can't help but notice the many striking similarities that he and Sebastian share. Written by
The play that Kassie and Wally attend is, of course, "Hamlet" by William Shakespeare (as one can tell from the dialogue, if not the costuming). See more »
When Wally and Sebastian are walking through the park the woman jogging and the man on the bike with the beige jacket can both be seen crossing the camera twice in under 30 seconds. Without doubling back this is not possible. See more »
To those of you who disliked this movie or "thought it sucked" - as do you...it was a typical romantic comedy..they're meant to be cheesy...i laughed, i cried...honestly i have to say i liked it a lot...almost a love..have an open mind people..you can only do the same movie so many times before people get sick of it...this was NOT one of those same ol' romantic comedies...jen aniston was perfect as was bateman...gotta love the kid hes too cute for words...all of them were perfect for the role they played, the boy especially..thomas robinson may be one of the cutest and most well spoken child actors i have ever seen in a movie or on TV in my life...
