We gave it a C

Amazing what a bump on the head can do for a widowed professor’s sex life. Dennis Quaid stars in this dramedy as a grumpy professor who, while recuperating from a concussion, starts dating a former student (Sarah Jessica Parker). This doesn’t sit well with his teen daughter (Ellen Page), so she rebels as anyone would: by getting drunk with her ne’er-do-well uncle (Thomas Haden Church).
