About A Boy

About A Boy

After writing a hit song, Will Freeman was granted a life of free time, free love and freedom from financial woes. Now he's single, unemployed and loving it.

So when Marcus (the oddly charming 11-year-old next door neighbor) stops by, Will's not so sure about being a kid's new best friend... until Will discovers that women find single dads hot. Well, that changes everything. A deal is struck: Marcus will pretend to be Will's son, and in return Marcus is allowed to chill at Will's house, playing ping-pong and gorging on steaks - something Marcus' single, needy (and very vegan) mother would never allow.

Before he realizes it, Will starts to enjoy Marcus' visits and even finds himself looking out for the kid. Could it be that maybe there's something to be said for being a (sort of) responsible adult - at least in a young boy's eyes?

Starring Minnie Driver ("Good Will Hunting") and David Walton ("Bent"), based on the best-selling book by Nick Hornby ("High Fidelity," "An Education") and written/produced by Jason Katims ("Parenthood," "Friday Night Lights") comes a different kind of coming-of-age story.

I like how this season NBC has pretty nice comedy shows. This and Growing Up Fisher are just adorable to watch.

Will Freeman (David Walton) lives a charmed existence as the ultimate man-child. After writing a hit song, he was granted a life of free time, free love and freedom from financial woes. He's single, unemployed and loving it. So imagine his surprise when Fiona (Minnie Driver), a needy, single mom and her oddly charming 11-year-old son Marcus (Benjamin Stockham of 1600 Penn) move in next door and disrupt his perfect world. When Marcus begins dropping by his home unannounced, Will's not so sure about being a kid's new best friend, until, of course, Will discovers that women find single dads irresistible. That changes everything and a deal is struck: Marcus will pretend to be Will's son and, in return, Marcus is allowed to chill at Will's house, play ping-pong and gorge on steaks, something his very vegan mom would never allow. Before he realizes it, Will starts to enjoy the visits and even finds himself looking out for the kid. In fact, this newfound friendship may very well teach him a thing or two that he never imagined possible — about himself and caring for others.
