Description
A complacent, middle-aged ear, nose, and throat doctor attempts to win back his wayward wife with a little help from their college-bound son in this romantic comedy from writer/director Barra Grant (Glory Days, Life of the Party). Dr. Ben Bingham (Richard E. Grant) has everything a man his age could want in life -- a good job, a gorgeous home, and a beautiful wife -- yet, as a result of being so content, he's lost his passion for living. His wife, Amanda (Carrie-Anne Moss), on the other hand, is excited to start a new phase in her life once their teenage son, Justin (Johnny Pacar), leaves for college. Unfortunately, she sees Ben as dead weight, and decides to walk out on the marriage before he drags her down, too. With Amanda gone, Ben sinks into a deep depression, slipping into his pajamas for weeks on end and numbing his sorrows in gallons of booze. Disturbed by his father's increasingly morose behavior, Justin give his dad a makeover and encourages him to go out on the town. Before long, every single woman has her eyes on Ben. But there's only one woman he wants, and in order to get her back he'll have to convince her that he has a new outlook on life. When teenage player Justin falls hard for a virtuous Russian ballerina, Ben returns the favor by schooling him in the fine art of romance. In the process, Ben realizes just what Amanda means to him, and vows to do whatever it takes to win her back. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

display_description Ben Bingham has slipped into a fossilized middle age, unlike his vibrant wife Amanda. When she finally leaves him, Ben is at a loss. He drowns himself in gin and refuses to get out of his pajamas until his popular 17-year-old son Justin takes over. He changes Ben's 'look' and pushes him out into the social scene. Before Ben knows what is happening, he is the most popular single man in town, pursued by his nurse, his trainer, and karaoke-singing twins.
