Synopsis & More
Commercial jingle writer Charlie Harper is a wealthy bachelor with a house at the beach, a Jaguar in the garage and an easy way with women. But his Malibu lifestyle is interrupted when his uptight chiropractor brother, Alan, arrives unexpectedly with his 10-year-old son, Jake. Alan's wife, Judith, suspecting that she may be gay, wants a divorce. Charlie reluctantly allows Alan and Jake to live with him temporarily, but as it becomes increasingly obvious that Judith is never going to relent, Charlie and Alan's self-obsessed, controlling unmarried mother, Evelyn, offers to let father and son live with her. However, by that time, Charlie has formed a close bond with the clever Jake, even learning a few things about poker from the boy. Charlie also finds out that pretending to be a single dad with a cute kid can be a great lure for women. Missing Jake, Charlie surprises even himself and asks Alan and Jake to live with him permanently. Despite their strained relationship, the brothers discover that they have one thing in common: they both love Jake and want what's best for him. Together these two-and-a-half men face the challenges of growing up.
