The film tells the story of Ned Rockliffe (played by Paul Rudd) who is working at a farmer's market together with his dog, and he is the only brother of three sisters Miranda Rockliffe (played by Elizabeth Banks), Natalie Rockliffe (played by Zooey Deschanel and Liz (played by Emily Mortimer). When Rockliffe goes to prison for trying to assist a fed-up police officer with a bit of weed, his rehabilitation forces him into the lives of his sisters. The plot places Rockliffe in the care of his sisters, where he continues to get involved in their lives and wreak havoc.
The film starts off slowly and takes it time to build up. The plot is not great, but takes a common story and does something flourishing with it. It's a touching film that works on the strengths of its characters and the feeling it draws from you on their behalf. Opinion will be sharply divided over this film, but there's plenty to like about it.
