Bill is unhappy: he has married a banker's daughter and has a dead end job at the bank; his wife Jess is tied to daddy's wallet; and, Bill is developing a gut from lack of exercise and constantly eating candy bars. He dreams of buying a donut franchise to be independent of Jess's dad. Bill is roped into a mentoring program at his old prep school, assigned a smart-mouthed kid who pops up when least expected. When Jess starts an affair with Chip, a local TV personality and vain Rob Lowe look-alike, it sends Bill, the kid, and a young sales clerk from a lingerie shop on a quest to win back Jess and get the donuts. What about self-respect?Written by
In the scene where John Sr., John Jr and Bill are talking to the French people and John Jr is translating, he makes translation errors. "Son-in-law" is not "faux bil", it's "beau fils" (pronounced Bow Fee-s). See more »

Watch this movie before you go to bed. Or, before you go to work.
Funny thing. Two minutes into the movie, I thought: "American Beauty Light". After the movie I visit IMDb and the first comment that pops up is titled "American Beauty Light". And I actually believe it sums up the movie. Or rather: American Beauty Light with Humor.
I think I really enjoyed this movie, and like many have commented before me, Aaron Eckhart really does a good job as Bill. After recently having seen The Dark Knight and now this movie, I'm really starting to get a feeling this Eckhart guy is gonna make it big. He kind of rules. He looks like an actor and his voice is trustworthy. I have no clue as to why I'm writing this comment, other than the fact that I wish to express my deepest respect for Mr. Eckhart and also I think people should check out this movie when they get a chance.
So, bottom line: check it out. Please do.
