A recent college graduate returns to the bosom of her slightly strange family in this unchallenging comedy drama. After her hopes of a career in publishing don't quite come to fruition, the likeably resilient Ryden (Alexis Bledel, of TV's Gilmore Girls) finds herself living back at home and working in her dad's luggage shop. Meanwhile, her longtime best buddy Adam (Zach Gilford) is undecided about heading to law school on the opposite side of the country. Could this be the end of a beautiful friendship? Quite possibly, if Ryden spends too much time with her hunky Brazilian neighbour (Rodrigo Santoro). If this seems like a 13-year-old girl's idea of adult life, it's because that's precisely the target audience. Michael Keaton is solidly endearing as Ryden's goofy dad, and the rest of her eccentric family is well played by the likes of Carol Burnett and Jane Lynch, so the film is never flat-out terrible - just thoroughly bland.

Plot Summary

Comedy drama starring Alexis Bledel and Michael Keaton. A high-achieving college graduate expects a bright future, but she's immediately thwarted in her attempts to land a publishing job. Instead, she winds up back at home with a family that drives her mad.
