However, what she doesn't know is that him and their aging African-American maid Mildred have another reason to stay. To make things more complicated, Barbara's tomboyish daughter Jennifer arrives to inform her that she's quitting college and opening a garage, since she wants to be a car mechanic. That's when the movers arrive. It's a family outfit run by depressed fifty-something ex-cabby Harry who's suffering from midlife crisis and can't climb a flight of six stairs without getting tired, his goofy son Joey who secretly wants to be a ballet dancer and Harry's friend Bruno, who's always drunk. Complications don't end there, ...
