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: The actors tune in to their individual characters perfectly, but this is Allen's show.
Fresh: What's best about Upside is its gonzo-sitcom craziness, a situation that lends itself to enjoyable performances.
Rotten: It feels like a retread of several better movies, with a nastier, more bitter edge.
Fresh: Showy and door-slamming but very watchable.
This movie should have got Joan Allen an Oscar nod, and I have never seen Kevin Costner so funny. It has smart humor, great story, and deep characters. I loved it!!
