Ethan Green () is having man trouble, first with his emotionally unavailable ex-baseball-player boyfriend, then with a teen party boy who won’t leave him alone, and worst of all with his ex-boyfriend who is looking to sell his house from under him. Meanwhile, Ethan’s mother () makes friends with all his former paramours and organizes their weddings for them, making sure to drop some coldly practical advice every time her son gets himself in a knot about something or other. The characters are all likable despite the painfully contrived plot, so you won’t necessarily hate yourself for watching it, but you won’t discover anything you didn’t already get out of All Over The Guy, The Broken Hearts Club, Relax…It’s Just Sex, or a whole host of other movies. Still, go ahead and indulge anyway, and bring a hilariously frothy friend with you to bask in the shallowness of it all.
