Frank Allen (Ryan Reynolds) doesn't believe in spontaneity, which is borne out by his bestselling book, The Five Minute Efficiency Trainer. Living via a foolproof system of timetables and index cards, his obsession with an orderly life becomes too much for his wife, Susan (Emily Mortimer) and 7 year-old daughter, Jesse (Matreya Fedor).

One morning, Susan deliberately sets the clock backward instead of forward and adds 10 minutes to Frank's day, in an attempt to break his dominating stranglehold on his daily scheduling. This minute adjustment unintentionally unleashes a series of mishaps that turn his meticulously ordered life upside down. A belligerent ferryman, a ruthless seductress, a reluctant mother-to-be and the secret amour of his best friend, Buddy (Stuart Townsend), combine to send his life spiralling into complete chaos with unexpected results...
