Sappy romantic comedy about three divorced dads (Matthew Modine, Paul Reiser, Randy Quaid) who share custody of their children with their ex-wives and in between try to resurrect their love lives with the opportunities they find in new friends. In the meanwhile, their teenage kids (including Eliza Dushku) also get into complications of their own. Janeane Garofalo has some hilarious bits as Quaid’s blind date gone to hell, but other than that it’s a run-of-the-mill comedy with a forced, pat-happy ending.
