As a long time fan of Ray Liotta I was looking forward to this comedy, but I was severely disappointed. I foolishly perservered with this disaster hoping that it would improve.
Married Walter (Liotta) confesses to his family he has had a extra-martial fling and as a result is thrown out of the family home, just as his eldest daughter announces her engagement. Through various contrived events he ends up in jail. Meanwhile, his neighbour Skylar, a school jock, ends his sports career after an unexpected injury. After much angst and more inane scenes Skylar gets arrested and ends up in - you've guessed it - the same cell as Walter! In order to be released, Walter agrees to become Skylar's guardian whilst his folks are out of town. During the course of the film the two guys help each other to find what they have lost and appreciate the people around them.
The story sounded good on paper but the script was very weak and the general level of acting was amazingly bad; the family was so annoying that I felt Walter should have just stayed in his cell for the entire movie. Skylar evoked no sympathetic emotion from me and I couldn't care whether he would be able to play again. The sub-plot involving Skylar and Walter's second daughter seemed like an after-thought and the wedding plans of the eldest daughter were excrutiating to watch.
The only positive note was, predictably, Liotta trying to salvage something from the dire script and co-actors. Give this film a miss and spend your hard-earned cash on something better.
