D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Neurotic, self-absorbed and pessimistic Wally Mars' (Jason Bateman) financial success with New York stock trading partner Leonard (Jeff Goldblum) does little to shake his fundamentally gloomy perspective on the world. The one bright spot is his best friend Kassie (Jennifer Aniston), beautiful and funny, who, unfortunately for Wally, is content being just friends. When Kassie, in her early 40s and single, announces that she wants to have a baby and doesn't plan to let the lack of a husband or boyfriend stand in the way, Wally is bursting with anticipation at what he expects to be asked. Then Kassie lowers the boom—she wants him to help her find Mr. Perfect Sperm Donor, not be Mr. Perfect Sperm Donor.

Before long, Kassie finds the perfect donor in the form of charming, Nordiclooking Roland (Patrick Wilson). At Kassie's "insemination party,” thrown by her best girlfriend Debbie (Juliette Lewis), Wally makes what is surely a lifechanging switch, then passes out and remembers nothing.

Kassie's plan moves right along—she becomes pregnant and happily moves back home to Minnesota to raise her baby.

Seven years later she moves back to New York, and Wally, still neurotic and still single, gets acquainted with Kassie's precocious—though slightly neurotic—son, Sebastian (Thomas Robinson). The two hit it off, and Wally starts spending more time with Sebastian.

"I can't wait around for something that may never happen!”

Wally becomes more and more intrigued, and confused, by how familiar Sebastian seems, even though Sebastian seems to understand very clearly he came from a "seed guy” and has no real father.

Wally becomes convinced that Sebastian is his son—that he hijacked Kassie's pregnancy. But how can Wally tell her? Kassie is getting ready to get married and have the family she always wanted. If Wally tells Kassie the truth now, he could lose her forever—and if he doesn't, he could lose his son.

But the way a man looks at the world when he is young and single and the way he looks at it when he loves a woman and has a child of his own are two very different things. Neurotic Wally needs to find the courage to face the truth and take the biggest risk of his life.
