    • Synopsis
    • Despite looking for the good in every situation and the best and in every person, Ned Rochlin (Paul Rudd) seems to find himself getting the short end of the stick more often than not. After serving time for the idiotic crime of selling pot to a uniformed cop, Ned returns to the farm he shares with his girlfriend to discover that she has taken up with another man and more importantly won’t give him his beloved dog, Willie Nelson. With nowhere else to go, he successively moves in with each of his three sisters (Elizabeth Banks, Emily Mortimer and Zooey Deschanel) as he tries to get back on his feet. Ned's best intentions yield hilariously disastrous results as he brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives. In other words, he wreaks havoc!
