But when Jessica Bard (Catherine Reitman), Ryden's college nemesis, steals her perfect job, Ryden is forced to move back to her childhood home. Stuck with her eccentric familya stubborn do-it-yourself dad (Michael Keaton), an overly thrifty mom (Jane Lynch), a politically incorrect grandma (Carol Burnett), a very odd little brother (Bobby Coleman)and a growing stack of rejected job applications, Ryden starts to feel like she's going nowhere. The only upside is spending time with her best friend, Adam (Zach Gilford)and running into her hot next-door neighbor, David (Rodrigo Santoro).
But if Ryden's going to survive life as a post grad, it may be time to come up with a new plan...
This movie is for kids and the young at heart - my 9 year old loved it ..
the trailer was better than the movie..
Total waste of time. Lame plot, substanceless characters, bad camerawork. Alexis Bledel, Michael Keaton and Carol Burnett should have their heads checked for releasing this jaw-droppingly boring and predictable flick to the public.
