One man's noble attempt at being a responsible adult and parent despite the fact he doesn't have a clue. When Jimmy Venables' ex-wife volunteers to go to Africa to help the victims of a natural disaster, weekend-dad Jimmy volunteers to take care of their two teenaged kids full time. Unfortunately, his posh mother-in-law Diana sees Jimmy as the true natural disaster and virtually moves in to keep order, keep an eye on things and undermine Jimmy whenever possible. Add to this a daughter who's growing up too quickly and a son who refuses to grow up at all, and you get a sense of the challenges Jimmy faces as he tries to be a real father on a daily basis. But that's okay, Jimmy never met a challenge he hasn't confronted head on... and been crushed by.
