Will is more interested in finding the perfect gift for his son Nathan's 13th birthday than in doing his job selling insurance; sensitive soul Craig still pines for his college ex, Lisa; and Kenny clamps down on his anger and asks himself, "what would Tobey Maguire do?," when his ex, Brenda, starts seeing a guy who is everything he's not and much better looking. After Craig crashes Lisa's wedding to try to win her ... Written by ABC Studios

Awesome show
8 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was the best new show of the year hands down. It's worth downloading since ABC wasn't smart enough to recognize how brilliant this was. I never saw a plug for it so I took a chance since it was suppose to be a comedy. What a find, I can't remember any new comedy show ever making me laugh so much. The cast was great and they meshed as if they were on their 10th season.

Every episode was hilarious and very rarely do I see a great pilot that makes laugh so much. ABC is the worst network on earth to not figure that out when they have a great show. I can't believe they replaced it with a show that isn't funny at all about cross dressing guys in the work place, "Work It" I refuse to watch that mindless spoon fed comedy as I like to call it. It's mindless crap that's so bad you have to have an IQ of under 80 to like it.

BRING BACK "MAN UP"!
