Families are crazy, and Tommy's (Tim Allen) is no exception. Fresh out of prison and looking to make a new start, Tommy must juggle his overprotective sister, her cynical husband, their oblivious grandmother, his former partner-in-crime, and his unpredictable ex-girlfriend -- while he finds himself falling for his probation officer, who is also a single mother! Tim Allen's directorial debut is a heartfelt comedy with a hilarious ensemble cast.

2010 Guide Analysis: "A bland and easily dismissible Tim Allen comedy on first glance, what surprises here is who agreed to be in it. The trailer plays out like a very standard studio comedy that just isn't funny, yet the likes of Weaver, Liotta, JK Simmons and several other high-profile actors in supporting roles means there must've been something that drew them to the project. I'm guessing it has to be the paycheck as the release date slot doesn't give one much hope."
