Meet the Borgens. William Borgens is an acclaimed author who hasn't written a word since his ex-wife Erica left him 3 years ago for another man. In between spying on Erica and casual romps with his married neighbour Tricia, Bill is dealing with the complexities of raising his teenage children Samantha and Rusty. Samantha is publishing her first novel and is determined to avoid love at all costs - after all she's seen what it has done to her parents. In between hook ups, she meets "nice guy" Lou who will stop at nothing to win her over. Rusty, is an aspiring fantasy writer and Stephen King aficionado, who is on a quest to gain 'life experiences'. He falls for the beautiful, but troubled Kate and gets his first taste of love and a broken heart. A tale of family, love (lost and found), and how endings can make new beginnings. There are no rewrites in life, only second chances. Written by

Well I was so excited when I rent this movie, just because the plot line seems nice, and there was a high score on IMDb. Also and especially because I love books, I love writer's stories on screen, I love love stories and I love Jennifer Connelly. But this movie was so full of clichés, so predictable in all the love stories that are described from the beginning to the end. Plus the books or stories they write don't seem that great, however they have no problem to be published. For me this movie was overrated, and maybe that is because US movies terribly lack authentic low-budget and simple movies...so when an American viewer sees a movie that only SEEMS to be simple, authentic, he/she tends to think it is great and special without giving it a more profound analysis...while it's actually kind of boring and cliché...I have seen much better with lowest rates.
