But even with Adam Scott, Richard Jenkins, Catherine O'Hara, Jane Lynch and Amy Poehler on board, the results are regrettably forgettable. Scott plays Carter, a mildly R-rated version of his nice-guy character on "Parks and Recreation. " A successful restaurateur with a longtime girlfriend (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)
