Bill is Vincent, a lonely, broke, obnoxious man who spends his days dodging people he owes money, gambling away what little money he does have and just grumbles through life. His life is changed when newly single mother Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) and her son Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher) move in next door. Maggie has to work all the time, so she pays Vincent to babysit for Oliver and the film basically follows their growing bond and how it changes them both for the better.
