It's about to get juicy.
A man's (Hugh Laurie) affair with his friend's much-younger daughter (Leighton Meester) throws two neighboring families into turmoil.

Very nice. It could use a bit of depth in developing the love story between David and Nina (the whole story basically happened in a month?), but the chemistry was great here, and the idea that seemingly bad things may be just triggers for a better chapter of your life is very encouraging.

Light comedy drama about two dysfunctional families, the Wailling's and the Ostroff's. They are neighbours, they are best friends and their two daughters grown up together. Everything starts to fall apart when Wailling fell in love with the Ostroff's daughter.
It's mostly about happiness and how to be happy in marriage but also in everything in life.
What I liked more about this film was the performances, specially from Hugh Laurie, Oliver Platt and Allison Janney. Catherine Keener was good too but her role didn't had much evidence.
It's predictable but entertains.
