Jonathan Kasdan makes his directorial debut with a romantic dramedy about trying to make sense of love. Devastated by the recent breakup with his true love, twenty-something writer Carter Webb (Adam Brody--"The O.C.") escapes Los Angeles for suburban Michigan to care for his ailing grandmother (Academy Award® winner Olympia Dukakis--Moonstruck). Soon after his arrival, he stumbles into the lives of the women across the street: a mother (Meg Ryan--When Harry Met Sally) and her two daughters. In the midst of all these women, Carter soon discovers that what felt like an end was really just the beginning of something else...

Touching-but-treacly chick flick for moms and teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while it's been marketed as a teen-centric romance, the movie includes some heavy subject matter. Teen girls will want to see this drama thanks to star Adam Brody -- aka Seth from The O.C. -- but his character here isn't a teenager; instead, he's a man with women issues. A central character has cancer, and its onset affects her entire family. Plus, a teenage girl smokes, drinks, and has a combative relationship with her mother, and a sometimes-senile grandmother believes she's on the verge of death. There are a few passionate kisses, and the protagonist's job as an erotic-film writer is mentioned throughout the film.
