Twelve year old Marcus Brewer lives with his chronically depressed single mother, Fiona Brewer. Both Fiona and Marcus beat to their own respective drummers. Marcus will do whatever he can to make his depressed mother happy, even if it causes himself grief. As such, he realizes that he is perceived as different than most kids, as even the self-professed weird kids don't want to hang out with him as he is the target of bullying. Part of the taunts against him are the fact that he sings and speaks to himself without even realizing that he is doing it. Meanwhile, thirty-eight year old Will Freeman is a slacker who has lived comfortably off the royalties of a song written by his deceased father, and as such has never had to work a day in his life. He is a solitary man who places himself as the first and only priority in life. He comes across the idea that dating single moms meets his selfish carnal needs. It is in this capacity that Will meets Marcus, as one of Will's single mother conquests, Suzie, is friends with the Brewers. Trying to escape his life but wanting Will to date Fiona, Marcus infiltrates Will's life, much to Will's chagrin. Will slowly begins to realize that Marcus is more than just a nuisance, but rather someone who needs some guidance navigating through the trials of adolescence and the trials of dealing with a suicidal mother, and perhaps he can be a small part of providing that direction. Conversely, Marcus may be able to show Will the path to becoming a real adult. - IMDb

По роману Ника Хорнби. Возраст Уила Фримана уже приближается к сорока годам, а он довольно успешно смог избежать в своей жизни каких бы то ни было обязательств перед кем бы то ни было. Этот состоятельный англичанин никогда не был женат, у него нет детей, у него даже никогда не было постоянной работы. Отец Уилла был автором популярной рождественской песни, и тем самым избавил своего сына от проблем с деньгами. Уилл живет на проценты, получаемые от использования песни его отца. Чтобы наконец-то повзрослеть и найти себе женщину, Уилл начинает ходить на специально организованные встречи родителей-одиночек, выдавая себя за отца, у которого якобы есть сын. На одной из встреч Уилл встречает двенадцатилетнего Маркуса, сына одной из матерей-одиночек. Мальчик и Уилл привязываются друг к другу и становятся лучшими друзьями. Маркус находит в Уилле понимающего взрослого, который помогает ему справляться с проблемами, а Уилл начинает постепенно заботиться о мальчике, чувствовать перед ним свою ответственность и взрослеть...
