Ned (Paul Rudd) is an idealist. His three sisters (Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer) are ambitious. His mother (Shirley Knight) is overbearing. Ned crashes at each of their homes, in succession, and brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives. In other words, he wreaks havoc.
