These Days

COMEDY. The Wilder kids’ home is fairly ordinary except for one thing—they have no parents. Their mother has abandoned them and run off with her boyfriend to start a new life in Pakistan, and they do not know who or where their father is. Afraid the family will be broken up and sent to separate foster homes, the Wilder kids ask their 24-year-old cousin, Tristan, to come and live with them for one year to serve as their legal guardian. Going against his fiancée’s wishes, Tristan moves into the Wilder’s house and all goes smoothly at first. But the household soon erupts into mayhem when the kids bring home an assortment of homeless animals and a busybody neighbor suffers an “unfortunate event” with a stale sheet cake just as a social worker arrives to check up on the kids!
