We spend a lot of time worrying

about career, money,

what people will think of us,

and if we'll ever find love.

After all, isn't that

what life is all about?

Being in love?

If it's meant to be, two

people will find each other.

Turning 50 makes a guy think...

Did I pick the right career?

Did I pick the right person?

Did I settle?

Did I force my life to go the way

I think it should have gone?

What will I do with the rest of my life?

I only have about 35 years left.

I won't be a minute.

I went to get the papers.

I turned the latch off!

I forgot to turn it on again...

He's out there... he was coming in!

You look like you've had better days.

Is it because you're turning 50?

I don't know.

I don't know what's wrong with me.

I feel disconnected.

Oh my god, dude, what happened to my life?

How did I get to be 50?

There's something about those two numbers.

I was okay at 49.

I didn't feel anything, but just by

those two numbers changing to 50...

It's freaking me out.

It's just a number.

That's what you say... until it hits you.

"He's going through that mid-life crisis"

I never knew what it meant.

I never thought it would be

something I would have to deal with.

I didn't think I'd live this long.

What exactly is a mid-life crisis, anyway?

From what I can tell, It's when you hit

that state of life where you question...

if you've achieved your goals,

rate your life on how happy you are,

if you did what you set out

to do by a certain age...

I think I'm going to throw up.

I don't guess you can understand,

you're not there yet.

Look, man.

You take life way too seriously.

You just got to go along for the ride.

I wish I could be like that.

I came from a poor family.

I always wanted to have more...

for my life.

But you seem like you have

everything you could need.

You have a career... and Greg.

There's a lot you don't

know about me and Greg.

Yeah, I know Greg is a complete dickhead.

I just think you can do better.

Are we still having your birthday party?

I guess. I don't care.

Can I bring my cousin, from Indiana?

Indiana? Yeah, I really think

you guys will hit it off.

Indiana, huh? Farm boy, no doubt.

Yeah. He's a super cool guy,

he's in between jobs right now and

he wanted to come to town for a visit.

Sure, bring him along.

What's this?

The small town where I grew up.

My great grandma...

would take me and my brother every

day in the summer to Foster's Freeze.

She'd call it 'Foyster's Freeze'.

Between my Mom and my Grandparents,

we had a whole lot of love.

My Dad didn't seem too

interested in me and my brother.

From what Mom says, he never wanted kids.

I just don't understand what happened.

I was just 23! Look!

So, are we going to see

your parents this summer?

You keep talking about it,

but it never happens.

"Never Happens"? What

do you mean it never happens?

Forget it.

I know your parents would like me.

I'm sure they would, babe.

It's just...

It's complicated.

Sure it is, Greg.

Everything is complicated, isn't it?

That's what people say

when, they need an excuse.

When they can't find one.

C'mon, Babe. They're going to meet you.

I want them to meet you.

Sometime... when it's right.

It'll never be right.

Who's this?

Me.

That one's from my eighth birthday party.

My Dad thought it would be a great idea

to have a pinata. I was blindfolded.

I finally broke the pinata, a kid shoved

me out of the way to get the candy.

I cried, and my Dad scolded me.

To this day, I still do not

understand the rules to pinata.

Why the birthday kid is

blind when the candy falls.
