Upon the sudden death of her parents, 28-year-old divorced nurse Ricky Wilder (Mary Page Keller) returned to her family home – with her six-year-old daughter Sophie (Tina Majorino) – to become the guardian to her 16-year-old brother Brody (Jerry O’Connell) and 13-year-old sister Melissa (Meghann Haldeman).
Ricky’s lively, laissez-faire household made the Wilder kitchen a favoured hangout for neighbourhood teens, who preferred it to their own stricter homes.
Among the hangers-out were Brody’s dim-witted buddy Dorfman (Jay Mohr), Beth (Margaret Langrick) and Danielle (Hilary Swank).
