At forty-something, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living a dream life with a good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his "perfect" life quickly unravels.

In today's single world, Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out like a sore thumb. Spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protege to the handsome Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). In an effort to help Cal get over his wife and start living his life, Jacob opens Cal's eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style.

Cal and Emily aren't the only ones looking for love in what might be all the wrong places: Cal's 13 year-old son, Robbie (Jonah Bobo), is in love with his 17 year-old babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), who secretly has a major crush of her own...on Cal. And even Jacob's new-woman-every-night modus operandi is challenged when he tries his best lines on Hannah (Emma Stone), a girl he just can't seem to get out of his mind.
