It's not only teenagers who find themselves when they go off to college. Two brilliant actors best known for dramatic roles join forces in a romantic romp, and they have a ball. Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia play strangers who meet while escorting their teen children to campus-tour day at a mythical college named Middleton (the film is in part a hilarious parody of American college life). Farmiga unleashes her comedic skills as Edith, a shockingly honest character who's so far out at the end of her rope that she can't take anything seriously. Garcia, in spectacles and bow tie, plays George, a hyper-fastidious heart surgeon so self-controlled that he insists on backing into parking slots. They clash immediately, ditch the tour and through a series of escapades find themselves sliding helplessly into love and something far more than they ever imagined. The cast includes Tom Skerritt, Peter Riegert, and Taissa Farmiga, Vera's much-younger sister, who plays the studious, driven daughter Audrey. This charming romance, which takes turns between silly and serious, radiates a joy that will linger long after the credits roll.
