Buddies Ben (Jason Ritter, The Dry Land) and Alan (Jake Sandvig, Easy A) are twenty-something L.A. slackers who make money through a valet-parking scam (they park cars at funerals, then steal them) and by leasing their rental house next door. Their new tenant is a stressed-out single mom, Kelsey (Carrie Preston, TV’s True Blood), who’s struggling to pay her bills and support her precocious, street-smart 12-year-old son (Chandler Canterbury, Knowing).
Ben and Alan strike up a friendship with Kelsey, but Alan’s sister Mel (Rebecca Hall, The Town) comes to believe that the boy may be a neglected latchkey kid. Mel’s intervention to remedy that situation sets off a chain of events that leads the guys to invent the family they’ve always needed.
The unrated movie received a limited release to U.S. theaters in early May, 2012 to only so-so review, though Variety’s Joe Leydon described it as “very funny.”
No bonus features are on the DVD or Blu-ray.
