A hard-working small business owner and his two associates travel to Europe to close the most important deal of their lives. But what began as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every way imaginable - and unimaginable.
Ted Morgan has been treading water for most of his life. After his wife leaves him, Ted realizes he has nothing left to live for. Summoning the courage for one last act, Ted decides to go home and face the people he feels are responsible for creating the shell of a person he has become. But life is tricky. The more determined Ted is to confront his demons, to get closure, and to withdraw from his family, the more Ted is yanked into the chaos of their lives. So, when Ted Morgan decides to kill himself, he finds a reason to live. Written by
Somehow Courtney Cox managed to capture some of the everyday complications of life, parenthood, sexuality, marriage and adolescence and shaped them into a wonderful piece of beautifully twisted dysfunctional art.
Fine performances from everyone in the cast. Especially Sean William Scott as I am used to his 'stiffleresque' performances. He really shined in his performance which was quite refreshing and a good change of pace.
I wasn't sure what I was walking into when I sat down to watch this film but what I discovered was a rare gem of a film.
Great job Courtney Cox. A truly unexpected find this film was.
