"A funny thing happened on the way to rehab."

WHY STOP NOW? brings together the comic talents of Academy Award-nominee Jesse Eisenberg, Academy Award-winner Melissa Leo and Tracy Morgan in the summer's wildest comedy.

Eli (Jesse Eisenberg) is a piano prodigy and today is the audition that will determine his future. Will he launch a career and take off into the world? Or will he stay stuck, caring for his sister and mother (Melissa Leo), who is a drug addict, despite her cheerful and loving disposition?

The only obstacle to overcome before he can transform his future, is to drop his mom off at the rehabilitation center. A glitch in the system however, forces sends them off to enlist the help of an unlikely ally, her drug dealer Sprinkles (Tracy Morgan).

The day spirals downhill quickly, and the hapless team must collaborate every step of the way to battle their own demons and get Eli out of the rabbit hole.
