Years ago, well-meaning friends set Holly Berenson (Katherine Heigl) and Eric Messer (Josh Duhamel) up on what turned out to be the most disastrous blind date imaginable. Their loathing was immediate and mutual. Fast forward to the present. Holly is still best friends with Allison, who is married to Peter Novak and has a child, Sophie. Holly is single, working in a bakery, and nurturing hopes of a relationship one day with Sam (Josh Lucas). Eric and Peter remain good friends. Eric is living the bachelor lifestyle, with no intention of settling down or marrying. Holly and Eric have never gotten along, despite the efforts of their friends.

Peter and Allison unexpectedly die in a tragic car accident, leaving Sophie an orphan. To everyone's surprise, their will names Holly and Eric as joint guardians of Sophie. There are no other available relatives, and Holly can't bear the thought of giving the baby up for adoption to strangers. Determined to make the best of things and honor their friends' wishes, Eric and Holly move into Allison and Peter's home to raise Sophie together. The trials of raising a child as a single parent are magnified, as Sophie is being raised by two single parents, living together, who do not see eye-to-eye on anything. They clash over everything, from who gets the bigger bedroom to when either of them should get a night away from childcare duties.

Over time, Eric and Holly come to a grudging understanding, which eventually deepens into a friendship and, finally, love. As they grow and begin to understand and care for one another, they see what Allison and Peter were thinking when setting them up on that fateful night, many years ago. Finally, Holly and Eric are able to see what Allison and Peter knew all along - that if they are willing to drop their defenses and take a chance on each other, they really are meant to be together.

The supporting cast includes Christina Hendricks as the deceased Allison and Melissa McCarthy as a neighbor.
