The film also works due to the offbeat casting of Clooney, also in virgin territory as an actor...Clooney instead of playing the womanizing stud is playing the bewildered husband and father who is often clueless about the choppy waters that being a father require him to negotiate, so clueless that at one point he even seeks the advice of his older daughter's dim-witted boyfriend (Nick Krause).
