When a family of hungry raccoons invade the bliss of Dr. Jeffery Lang’s fantastic new backyard (Tobey Maguire), he becomes obsessed with eradicating the pests by any means necessary. But his wife, Nealy (Elizabeth Banks), would prefer him to relandscape their yard, to make it inhospitable to raccoons, rather than continuing to make battle with a relentless foe. Unfortunately for Dr. Lang, he does not listen to his wife, and his tete-a-tete with the raccoons soon leads way to a tete-a-tete with a very meddlesome neighbor (Laura Linney), and before he knows it, Dr. Lang finds himself buried in an absurd mess of infidelity, organ donation and other assorted mayhem. Also starring Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert and Kerry Washington.

A "provocatively acrid adult comedy of lies, deceits, and a touch of murder." —Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Compelling... Its presence counts for something and deserves attention." —Boston Globe
