    • Synopsis
    • A once-acclaimed New York playwright, Nate (Jemaine Clement), is struggling to finish his new play when his wife leaves him, taking their son. Desolate, broke and unable to pay the rent, Nate begrudgingly moves in with his widowed father, Bob (Elliott Gould), in his New Jersey retirement golf community. Bob, always quick with a joke, uses humor to deal with all of life's challenges, even the death of his beloved wife. It drives Nate crazy. Soon enough Nate stumbles on a senior citizen theater troupe staging a musical. Nate agrees to help but quickly realizes it won't be easy to get these quirky women to cooperate. And one of them, Dee (Annie Potts) even invites him to dinner to not-so-subtly set him up with her daughter. Working on this show embarrasses him, but this humble effort inevitably leads to an epiphany.
