Storyline

The Harper brothers Charlie and Alan are almost opposites but form a great team. They have little in common except their dislike for their mundane, maternally cold and domineering mother, Evelyn. Alan, a compulsively neat chiropractor and control-freak, is thrown out by his manipulative wife Judith who nevertheless gets him to pay for everything and do most jobs in the house. Charlie is a freelance jingle composer and irresistible Cassanova who lives in a luxurious beach-house and rarely gets up before noon. Charlie "temporarily" allows Alan and his son Jake, a food-obsessed, lazy kid who shuttles between his parents, to move in with them after Alan's separation/divorce. The sitcom revolves around their conflicting lifestyles, raising Jake (who has the efficient, caring dad while having a ball with his fun-loving sugar uncle who teaches him boyish things), and bantering with Evelyn and various other friends and family. Other fairly regular characters include Charlie's cleaning lady ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

At a convention of television critics, during the summer of 2005, executive producer Chuck Lorre confirmed that the show's opening tune was performed by studio musicians and not by Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. Jones, who merely lip-sync the lyrics. One of the actual crooners was singer and voice-over artist Elizabeth Daily. See more »

Crazy Credits

The Chuck Lorre Productions vanity card at the end of each episode consists of the words "Chuck Lorre Productions", the vanity card number, and a short essay or mini screenplay that changes with each episode. Topics have included a riff on slang words that Lorre wants to coin, the reason a certain scene containing the line of dialog that was used as the episode's title was edited out, and a screenplay about Lorre's assistant entering his office and finding him curled up in the fetal position.

season 9 oh dear, come back Charlie all is forgiven
27 September 2011 | by sculpter2011See all my reviews

I guess all the talented writers walked out of this show right behind Charlie Sheen,you can't bash Ashton Kutcher for stepping in & taking on this role,it doesn't work thats blatantly obvious,Kutchers character is bland & boring & is in no way a fitting replacement for the Charlie Harper character,you got to feel a little sorry for actor Jon Cryer because without Sheen even his best efforts are falling flat. This show should have been cancelled & the remaining characters re- written into a new show focusing on Cryer being the main character,after 8 seasons i think he should have been given the chance more so than hiring a new actor to take over the staring role,both Jon Cryer & Charlie Sheen can raise a laugh with a simple facial expression a talent that sadly Ashton Kutcher does not seem to possess,Kutcher is a good actor thats obvious but he's the wrong choice for this show. the first episode was just embarrassing but the second was so bereft of comedy the writers should sit down and watch an episode of big bang & 2 broke girls to see how it should be done. Love him or hate him Charlie Sheen was the real reason for the success of this show & he will be sorely missed.
