Two and a Half Men is a comedy about men, women, sex, dating, divorce, mothers, single parenthood, sibling relations, surrogate families, money and, most importantly, love.
More specifically, it's about the lives of two brothers, one brother's son and the many women who surround them.
Charlie Harper is a well-to-do bachelor with a house at the beach, a Mercedes in the garage and an easy way with women. His casual Malibu lifestyle is interrupted when his tightly wound brother, Alan, and Alan's son, Jake, come to stay with him.
Complicating matters further are Charlie and Alan's narcissistic, emotionally- toxic mother, Evelyn; Alan's deeply neurotic ex-wife, Judith; Charlie's domineering, unapologetically blue-collar housekeeper, Berta; and Charlie's stalker-neighbour Rose, whom he once had a fling with.
Despite the complexities of their lives and their own strained relationship, Charlie and Alan have one thing in common - they both love Jake and want what's best for him.
As a result, they manage to create a little family unit that promises to make each of them a better man.
