When his wife unexpectedly informs him that she wants a divorce, well-meaning but oblivious husband Otto Wall finds himself thrust back into bachelorhood, where he searches for the real thing amidst a string of one night stands.
The plot of this movie is not clear. The guy's wife informs him of her plans to divorce him at a counseling session. Husband is dumbfounded. He has several one night stands. Attends a class reunion and it appears that he wants to rekindle a relationship with an ex-girlfriend. At the end, wife approaches him about his new lifestyle and husband finally admits he now knows about her affair and that she has little room to speak when it comes to being a good role model for their daughter.

What appears on the surface to be a quirky slice of life movie turns out to be a thoughtful and sensitive look at finding romance and adventure following the breakup of a marriage. Walter's encounters with women are sexy, bizarre and wonderfully funny while at the same time he struggles to become a successful single parent to his nine old daughter and move on with his life. Scenes featuring Social media and sitting in front of the screen as Walter dabbles in connecting online are pitch perfect, as are his efforts to be his better self, navigating the murky waters of women looking for excitement. Marvelous writing and laid back directorial style.
Go see this movie!
