  About a boy 关于一个男孩

  Single and child-free, Will, a trendy, 38-year-old Londoner, spends his days buying new CDs, shopping for designer clothes and worrying about his Audi Coupe and hairstyle. Nights, whenever possible, are devoted to beautiful women. Work? What's that? Thanks to a ubiquitous Christmas song written by his dad and recorded by everyone from Elvis to the Muppets, Will doesn't have to work like the rest of the world. The royalties rolling in have enabled him to make a profession out of avoiding responsibility.

  A fling with a single mom turns on the light bulb over his head: maybe a good place to meet women would be single-parent support groups. And so, posing as a single dad with a two-year-old, he joins S.P.A.T. —— Single Parents, Alone Together. Well on his way to charming a single mom named Suzie, he inadvertently bonds with a 12-year-old named Marcus, the son of Suzie's best friend.

  A good boy, Marcus just wants mom Fiona, an eccentric, single hippie-chick, to be happy——because she's literally been suicidal since a recent breakup. Add on the fact that the kids at school won't stop picking on him, and Marcus is under more pressure than any 12-year-old should be. So Marcus turns to the nearest father figure for help. That would be Will. Though he quickly deduces that Will has lied about being a single dad, Marcus badly needs a friend, and try as he does to resist,Will gradually starts to care about the boy's well-being. As Will plays Pygmalion, treating Marcus to a shopping spree for the hippest sneakers and CDs, Marcus's self-confidence grows. Likewise, thanks to Marcus and Fiona, Will finds himself becoming less self-obsessed.

  That's when he meets Rachel, a bright, beautiful single mom with a 12-year-old boy of her own. Will finds himself falling in love for the very first time in his life.But it's complicated —— especially when Rachel assumes that Marcus is his son.

  Who knew love could be so hard? And what ridiculous things it can make a man do? It's almost more than Will can bear, especially when he realizes how much he cares about Rachel, Marcus, even wacky Fiona. And when Will puts himself on the line for his makeshift family, it's a shock to discover that he has saved not only Marcus and Fiona, but himself.

  威尔是一个38岁的时尚伦敦人,他单身又没有孩子,把白天的时间都消磨在购买新唱片和名牌服饰上,老想着他的奥迪双门小轿车和发型。而晚上只要有可能就用来泡漂亮女人。至于工作嘛,他不知其然。这幸亏他父亲谱写的一首无处不唱的圣诞节歌曲,从"猫王"到木偶乐队,每个歌手都要翻唱,所以威尔不用像其他人那样工作。滚滚而来的歌曲版税,使他可以成为一个无所事事、逃避责任的专业户。

  在同一位单身母亲放荡了一阵子后,威尔想起了一个精点子:也许单亲家长互助小组是一个结识女人的好去处。于是,他将自己伪装成有一个两岁孩子的单身父亲,加入了"单亲家长,共度孤?quot;互助会。当他正在向一位名叫苏齐的单身母亲施展魅力的时候,他不经意地同一个12岁的男孩马库斯缠在了一起,这个男孩是苏齐好朋友的儿子。

  马库斯是个好孩子,他只想让他的妈妈高兴。他的妈妈菲奥纳是一个性情古怪的嬉皮士单身母亲,不久前离异后一直有自杀倾向。还有,学校的同学老是作弄他。他承受着超出他这个年龄的男孩所应承受的压力。因此,马库斯就向最接近父亲形象的人求助,这个人就是威尔。尽管马库斯很快推断出威尔并不是一个单身父亲,但马库斯太需要一个朋友了。尽管威尔极力抗拒,但逐渐地他开始关心起这个男孩的幸福。于是威尔开始热心照顾马库斯,带着他疯狂购物,买了新潮的运动鞋和唱片,这使马库斯增强了自信心。同时,通过跟马库斯和菲奥纳相处,威尔发现自己不再那么以自我为中心了。

  就在此时,他遇到了雷切尔,她是一个靓丽的单身母亲,有一个12岁的儿子。威尔发现自己平生头一次坠入了情网,但此事很复杂,特别是雷切尔认为马库斯是他的儿子。

  谁知道爱竟如此艰难?它能让一个男人做什么样的蠢事呢?威尔几乎应付不了这个局面,特别是当他意识到他对雷切尔、马库斯、甚至疯疯癫癫的菲奥纳的关切之情。当威尔为自己的临时家庭负起责任时,他吃惊地发现他不仅救了马库斯和菲奥纳,而且还救了自己。
