Charlie and Dan have been best friends and business partners for thirty years and their Manhattan public relations firm is on the verge of a huge business deal with a Japanese company. With two weeks to sew up the contract, Dan gets a surprise; a woman he married on a drunken impulse nearly nine years before (annulled the next day) shows up to tell him he's the father of her twins, now seven, and she'll be in jail for 14 days for a political protest. Dan volunteers to keep the tykes, although he's uptight and clueless. With Charlie's help is there any way they can be dad and uncle, meet the kids' expectations, and still land the account?
Sit. Stay. Play Dad.

Did You Know?
Was originally supposed to be released theatrically in non-Quebec French-language markets as "Papy-Sitter" a wordplay with the French word "papy" meaning "grandpa". When Walt Disney
Pictures decide to release the film straight-to-home-video in these markets due to the film's US financial failure, they instead went with the Quebec title "Les 2 Font La Père" which is a also a wordplay based on the French expression "les 2 font la paire", somewhat equivalent to "two of a kind" and the word "père" which means "father".

When Jenna (Rita Wilson) is injured and taken to a hospital there is a shot of the outside of the hospital. In the background behind the hospital but clearly visible, there are palm trees. This hospital is supposedly in the U.S. northeast. There are no palm trees in that part of the country
so this is most likely a "stock shot." See more
