The Boys are Back
Growing up can be the adventure of a lifetime
Just another cheesy shot!
A divorced dad moves to Australia with his youngest son and new wife. She unfortunately departs, leaving him as a single dad with little experience in childrearing. He adopts a ''just say yes'' attitude which means little discipline for the youngster. Things get more complicated when his firstborn arrives from England, and the older sibling soon finds himself playing dad to his younger brother. Dad's new girlfriend also complicates things a bit in this family drama.
