However when it comes to solving problems relating to love and family, he's completely lost! His teenaged daughter (Ellen Page) is an acid-tongued overachiever who follows in her father's misery-loving footsteps, whilst his adopted brother (Thomas Haden Church) has perfected the art of freeloading. When his brother shows up unexpectedly for an extended stay at just about the same time as he accidentally encounters his former student Janet (Sarah Jessica Parker), the circumstances cause him to stir from his deep, deep freeze, with often comical, sometimes heartbreaking, consequences for himself and everyone around him.

Comedy drama starring Dennis Quaid, Ellen Page, Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church. Lawrence Wetherhold (Quaid) is a brilliant, but grouchy, widowed English professor in the midst of a massive midlife crisis. He can't find a publisher for his book, he's forgotten how love works, and he's at a loss to understand his family. His son (Ashton Holmes) tells him nothing of his life at college, and his daughter (Page) is an acerbic-tongued overachiever. When his freeloading adoptive brother (Haden Church) shows up unexpectedly for an extended stay it looks like things might get even worse. Then Lawrence meets his former student Janet Cartigan (Parker) and his cold, cold heart begins to thaw. But how will the rest of the Wetherholds deal with this unexpected turn?
