Yahoo Movies provides the following background…
Murray plays Vincent, a drunken, gambling retiree who gets recruited by his new single-mom neighbor (McCarthy) to watch over her undersized 12-year-old son Oliver (newcomer Jaeden Lieberher). Vincent’s ideas of after-school activities involve racetracks and strip clubs, but eventually the mismatched pair begins to help each other grow up.
