A witty and poignant tale about uptight, pompous Professor Lawrence Wetherhold (Dennis Quaid), who in the years following his wife’s death, has become a scourge to his students and an emotionally absent father to his rebellious son and his perfect preppy daughter. When he suffers a concussion in a freak accident, he meets and unexpectedly falls for a beautiful E.R. doctor (Sarah Jessica Parker), a brilliant former student who is still harboring a grudge over a bad grade he gave her years before. When his slightly shady ne’er-do-well adopted brother (Thomas Haden Church) shows up and moves in, the family boat starts rocking. As Lawrence juggles his fractious family and new romance, he must learn to reconnect with the people around him and become the man he once was.
