Romantic Comedy: A man and woman who've been best friends following a one-night stand twenty years ago trade places for the week across the country so she can attend classes while he babysits her 13-year-old son.

Debbie Dunn (REESE WITHERSPOON) and Peter Coleman (ASHTON KUTCHER) have been close friends for the past twenty years, ever since they decided against following up on a one-night stand. He's since moved to New York where he's a successful consultant, while she's a divorced single mom to 13-year-old Jack (WESLEY KIMMEL) and works as a teacher at his school alongside her good friend Alicia (TIG NOTARO).

But she has higher academic aspirations and is planning on attending a once-a-year weeklong class in New York where she'll get to visit Peter. But when her babysitter bails on her, Peter decides to fly to L.A. to watch Jack while Debbie attends her classes.

As Peter tries to bond with and help the socially awkward teen and wonders about Debbie's neighbor, Zen (STEVE ZAHN), who's always gardening in her yard, she becomes besties with one of Peter's previous girlfriends, Minka (ZOE CHAO), who encourages her to pursue a handsome publishing house owner, Theo Martin (JESSE WILLIAMS). But as that plays out, Debbie and Peter come to realize they have unresolved feelings toward each other.

If they're fans of either of the two leads or rom-coms in general, they might.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
