About the Movie

A sharp-witted suburban wife, Terry Wolfmeyer (played by Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy Award-nominee Joan Allen -- "The Bourne Ultimatum," "Pleasantville"), is left to raise her four headstrong daughters when her husband unexpectedly disappears. Things get even more hectic when she falls for her neighbor, Denny (Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Kevin Costner -- "Tin Cup," "Dances with Wolves"), a once-great baseball star turned radio DJ. This leaves her daughters out on a limb as they are forced to juggle their mom's romantic dilemmas as well as their own.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mike Binder's femme-dominated domestic drama hooks the viewer immediately, and is flecked with enough bitterly comic touches to make this an easy-to-digest variation of an angst-ridden tale. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Feb 7, 2014

Fresh: The actors tune in to their individual characters perfectly, but this is Allen's show. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The characters are actually believable, and the messes they get into approximate real life. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It feels like a retread of several better movies, with a nastier, more bitter edge. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010
