Plagued by a midlife crisis, Bill (Aaron Eckhart) is an overweight office drone whose wife (Elizabeth Banks) is cheating on him with a smarmy television reporter (Timothy Olyphant). Bill befriends a rich private-school teen and a bored lingerie saleswoman (Jessica Alba), and through a series of unfunny high jinks the duo helps Bill put down the Snickers bars, quit his thankless job, and leave his spouse. Even a hilarious turn by Kristen Wiig as the owner of a doughnut company can't save this clichéd, meandering story from playing like American Beauty lite. D
