But Will and his friends find themselves wondering, in a world of Axe ads and manscaping, what does it really mean to be a guy anymore? 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

Can't believe this show was canceled
24 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is funny! I was able to watch all of them in sequence, online. They did a great job of casting these relative unknown actors. I thought the scripts were very funny. I enjoyed how each actor brought their unique quirkiness to the mix. Since the show only lasted one season (online), there wasn't time to introduce other characters (some of the parents, for example) or to fully exploit the dynamic between the main cast. Most of the story lines were very believable and easy to relate to. The cast was also likable. Was very disappointed to learn that it had been canceled. It's a shame. This show was worth continuing. I will buy the DVD collection once it becomes available. If you haven't checked it out ... go for it.
