Tim (Johnson) and Lee (DeWitt) are married with a young child. The chance to stay at a fancy home in the Hollywood Hills is complicated by Tim’s discovery of a bone and a rusty old gun in the yard. Tim is excited by the idea of a mystery, but Lee doesn’t want him to dig any further, preferring that he focus on the family taxes, which he promised to do weeks ago. This disagreement sends them on separate and unexpected adventures over the course of a weekend, as Tim and his friends seek clues to the mystery while Lee searches for answers to the bigger questions of marriage and parenthood.

Also in the film’s cast are such notable performers as Orlando Bloom (The Three Musketeers), Brie Larson (Don Jon), Sam Rockwell (The Way, Way Back), Anna Kendrick (The Last Five Years), Sam Elliott (The Big Lebowski), Ron Livingston (Dinner for Schmucks), Melanie Lynskey (Win Win) and Jane Adams (Restless).

Released to U.S. theaters on a limited basis in August, 2015, the R-rated film fared acceptably with the critics, garnering a 64% rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 59 published reviews.
