In this offbeat romantic comedy, everyone owns a copy of the life-changing bestseller ME AND GOD by Arlen Faber. But no one seems to know what has happened to the reclusive writer (Jeff Daniels), except Arlen Faber himself. When he has to emerge from his self-created cocoon because of a back injury, he meets a pretty chiropractor (GILMORE GIRLS' Lauren Graham) who may bring him out into the open. THE ANSWER MAN also stars Lou Taylor Pucci (THUMBSUCKER), Olivia Thirlby (JUNO), and Kat Dennings (NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST).
