Comedy. At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell)
is living the dream-good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to
his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily
(Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his
"perfect" life quickly unravels. Worse, in today's single world, Cal,
who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth.
Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the
hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protege to handsome,
thirtysomething player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). In an effort to
help Cal get over his wife and start living his life, Jacob opens
Cal's eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks
and a sense of style that can't be found at Supercuts or The Gap. Cal
and Emily aren't the only ones looking for love in what might be all
the wrong places: Cal's 13-year-old son, Robbie (Jonah Bobo), is crazy
about his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), who
harbors a crush on Cal. And despite Cal's makeover and his many new
conquests, the one thing that can't be made over is his heart, which
seems to keep leading him back to where he began.

This film has been rated PG-13 for coarse

humor, sexual content and language.
