This is a story about the breakup of the family. In particular, it focuses on the lifestyle of three divorced men. The film is presented from their perspective and it reveals their relationship with their children, ex-wives, girl friends, male friendships, and their identities as divorced men. In addition to dealing with divorce, the film touches on spousal loss and young adult homelessness. The film can be considered a social commentary that is both comical and emotional.Written by

[discussing his ex-wife's new boyfriend]
Well, tell Gerald, that if he touches my son again, I'll kill him.
Really. It was nothing more than a tap. And Jed was being very rude.
I don't care if Jed was taking a piss on his head. He touches him again, he dies. Tell him.

Not a horrible film, but no real moments of genius either. Sickeningly domestic, saccharine Hollywood puppet-show that might be entertaining to goody-two-shooed fluoride-poisoned Homonis-Domesticus "Outraged Fathers" and "Mad-Mothers" but, to the rest of us, will reek of suburban-ticket-sale-pandering.
Still, the script was decent, and the acting was fairly solid. It was better than most movies of it's kind and I must shamefully confess to having laughed a few times. Overall, it was a good movie with a good script and good actors; it's just a shame it was centered about such pedestrian and urbane material.
