Adam Sandler stars as the hapless leading man, Barry Egan, with a seven overbearing sisters who show him no mercy. His loneliness leads him to call a phone-sex service which in turn blackmails him just as he thinks he’s found the one in the quirky Lena (Emily Watson). The two create a beautiful relationship with just enough awkwardness involved.

The extortion storyline is led by Philip Seymour Hoffman who portrays the conniving porn-line owner moonlighting as a mattress salesman.
