In Los Angeles, the real estate agent Peter (Jon Dore) and his wife, the private teacher Lizzie (Radha Mitchell), have a troubled marriage since they are unable to have a baby of their own and they are facing financial difficulties. They have sessions with the marriage counselor Dr. Grayson (Mimi Kennedy) trying to resolve their issues. Lizzie spends most of her time with her friend Andie (Michelle Monaghan) and her dog Joyce, and gives classes to her only student, the teenager Justin (Andrew Shea). When the brainless Andie has one night stand with a stranger, she gets pregnant and gives-up of an abortion and offers the baby to Lizzie. Peter does not get excited with the idea, but Andie comes to their house to live with the couple. Meanwhile Peter's brother Casey (Michael Weston) leaves the rehabilitation and Peter bring him to live in his house since his brother is fragile and needs family support. With the four adults living together, friction increases among them.
"Gus" is a deceptive unfunny and annoying film. Surprisingly there are good reviews in IMDb. The story is pointless and the characters are awful and uninteresting. Andie is brainless, silly and irresponsible. Lizzie is confused and annoying, and does not give attention to her husband. Peter is a real estate agent that has to swallow his anger with his snobbish client, has many concerns (financial, his brother) and Lizzie presses him to fix the latch of the gate. Casey is absolutely uninteresting and not well developed. And their counselor Dr. Grayson is a moron. In the end, it is a totally unfunny comedy and the viewer is incapable to laugh. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "De Repente Um Bebê" ("Out of the Blue a Baby")
