Janice is down on her luck. She loses her job as a temp worker and ends up having to move in with her overbearing and supposedly successful younger sister, Jill, and her husband. Jill continues to exasperatingly belittle Janice and this contributes to Janice's feelings of insecurity and worthlessness.
Tim is a bit of an aimless street mime performer and has his own set of problems to deal with, namely, his girlfriend that no longer wants to hang around and support his 'career' as a street performer that wears stilts and silver face paint and metallic garb.
Enter a self absorbed, self help guru author that tries to impress Janice with his so called wisdom and wit but unbeknownst to him, ends up boring her instead. Thank goodness she sees right through him.
We enjoyed the movie.
