Abstract:

Warren Schmidt está a punto de conocer el trozo no-tan-dulce de la vida. Cuando se jubiló, él y su esposa Helen tenían planes grandes - pero un giro inesperado cambia todo. Ahora, toda la atención de Schmidt se centra en la boda próxima de su hija con un inútil vendedor de camas de aguas.

Warren Schmidt is about to taste the not-so-sweet slice of life. When he retired, he and his wife, Helen, had big plans - but an unexpected twist changes everything. Now, all of Schmidt's attention is focused on his daughter's upcoming wedding to a loser waterbed salesman. From meeting the groom's hippie parents to sponsoring a Tanzanian foster child, Schmidt embarks on a search for answers, only to discover that life is full of trick questions.
