Two brilliant actors better known for heavy dramatic roles give themselves a romp in comedy, and they have a ball. Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia play strangers who meet while escorting their teen children to campus-tour day at a mythical college named Middleton. (Shot at Gonzaga University and Washington State University, the film is in part a hilarious parody of American college life.)   Farmiga, who played the role of Madolyn in The Departed, has performed essential roles in a dozen great films from Up in the Air to Down to the Bone. Here she unleashes her comedic skills as Edith, a shockingly honest character who is so far out at the end of her rope that she can't take anything seriously. Garcia, in spectacles and bow tie, plays a hyper-fastidious heart surgeon so self-controlled that he insists on backing into parking slots. They clash immediately and so brilliantly that they can't stop. They quickly ditch the tour and through a series of escapades find themselves sliding helplessly into love.  Andy Garcia produced this escapade, and the cast includes his daughter and Farmiga's much-younger sister, who plays the studious, driven daughter Audrey.
