The Boys are Back

In the wake of his wife's tragic death, a witty, wisecracking, action-oriented, sportswriter (Clive Owen) finds himself in a sudden stultifying state of single parenthood. With turbulent emotions swirling just below the surface, Joe Warr throws himself into the only child-rearing philosophy he thinks has a shot at bringing joy back into their lives: "just say yes." Raising two boys—a curious six-year-old and a rebel teen from a previous marriage—in a household devoid of feminine influence and with an unabashed lack of rules, life becomes exuberant, instinctual, reckless and on the constant verge of disaster.
