Ryden Malby graduates from college and is forced to move back into her childhood home with her eccentric family, while she attempts to find a job, the right guy, and just a hint of where her life is headed.
Calm and quiet Daniel starts on Wall Street. His womanizing colleague, Tommy, encourages him to meet women. He unknowingly meets Tommy's girlfriend, Beth, and ends up in her 5 women book club. Will he find the woman?
Four best girlfriends hatch a plan to stay connected with one another as their lives start off in different directions: they pass around a pair of secondhand jeans that fits each of their bodies perfectly.
Ryden Malby has planned her academic life since she was in high school to get a college scholarship; now she has just graduated in English and in her master plan she expects to get a job as assistant editor in the publishing house Happerman & Browning, in Los Angeles. Her platonic best friend is Adam Davis, who has a crush on her and is frequently close to her. However, her arrogant classmate Jessica Bard gets the position and Ryden is forced to return home in the suburb to live with her family: her optimistic father Walter, who wants to do everything by himself; her careful mother Carmella who administrates the short resources of her family; her eccentric grandmother Maureen; and her weird little brother Hunter, who wants to race in a boxcar derby. Ryden unsuccessfully seeks a job and feels frustrated, but is emotionally supported by Adam. When Walter accidentally runs over the cat of his next-door neighbor David Santiago with Ryden's car, they visit him to give their sympathies. ...Written by

The storyline is mainly about the sobering process of fresh College graduates, who face "the real life" for the first time.
The lead female character finds out that sheer enthusiasm and confidence alone might not suffice in the attempt to secure a future one aspires to. The lead male character learns that a combination of avoiding difficult decisions and living in denial is hardly the wisest approach to leading one's life. Granted, those are hardly ground-breaking insights, but it may still be fun to watch the process of coming to terms with the reality that those insights refer to.
Most of the other characters are there for the comic element.
Finally, the acting is passable considering the limitations of the script and the light-hearted spirit of the movie.
