Wilson and Helms are Kyle and Peter Reynolds, brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out together to find their real father, and end up learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know.

Finding their father would be a family miracle.

Synopsis
Owen Wilson ("The Grand Budapest Hotel," "Wedding Crashers") and Ed Helms ("The Hangover" films, "We’re the Millers") star as fraternal twins Kyle and Peter, who accidentally discover they’ve been living with a lie all their lives. The kindly man in the photo on their mantle isn’t their father after all, but an invention their mother (Glenn Close) concocted to conceal the truth: that she actually doesn’t know who their real father is. See, it was the seventies, and things were crazy, and…well, you know...
