Comic sensations Steve Carell and Dane Cook along with Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche star in this hilarious and touching comedy that centers around what happens when romance and family collide. Love strikes in the worst-possible circumstances for widower, single dad and popular family advice columnist Dan Burns (CARELL) when he falls for a beautiful stranger (BINOCHE) in a bookshop -- only to discover she's the very same woman his charismatic brother (COOK) is about to introduce as his incredible new girlfriend at their parents' annual get-together. As the weekend gets under way, Dan and Marie scramble to hide their mutual attraction to each other, resulting in a series of hilariously awkward situations. Yet, even under those circumstances, they can't help falling in love. Now, Dan is about to realize that -- no matter how many good suggestions he might have for other people -- when it comes to romance and family, the hardest advice for a man to follow is his own.
