The main characters are played by Steve Guttenberg, Daniel Stern, Mickey Rourke, Kevin Bacon, Tim Daly, and Paul Reiser. Shrevie, Boogie, Timothy, Eddie, and the others deal with growing up, starting their careers, and becoming responsible family men. Ellen Barkin co-stars as the wife of Stern's Shrevie. The couple are already having communication problems. Guttenberg's Eddie, who is scheduled to get married on New Years Eve, is making his bride pass a test about the Baltimore Colts. Dramatic and comedic events pepper the film as it explores the idea of arrested adolescence.
