Ollie Trinkie is a publicist, who has a great girlfriend, Gertrude, whom he marries and they are expecting a baby but while he is looking forward to being a father, he doesn't lighten his workload. Gertrude gives birth but dies in the process. Ollie doesn't live up to his responsibilities as a father. Eventually the strain and pressure of losing his wife and being a father gets to him and he has breakdown, which leads to his termination. So with nothing much to do he tries to be good father to his daughter, Gertie. He also meets a young woman name Maya, who likes him but he is still not over his wife.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Smith is looking more and more like a developing major talent, so it could be years until we get a handle on this movie's legacy. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The script stoops to cheap gags that undercut Affleck's efforts to sustain a believable character. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Inspired by Smith's own awe and amazement at being a father, the movie is modest and entertaining, with a minimum of sentimental goo, and it demands little of us except a good-natured willingness to go with it. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Affleck may be a nice man, but he has a seemingly congenital inability to do anything convincingly, which is only made worse by Smith's apparent immunity to cloying sentiment. – John Anderson, Newsday, Jun 24, 2010

Go away haters!

It seems like so many love to hate on this movie. Even Kevin Smith makes fun of it, but besides Chasing Amy it is his best! So heartfelt, funny, and well made. I also found it refreshing not to hear the foul language, and toilet humor that you often get from Kevin Smith


Loved it! So funny!
