Gordon Townsend (Colin Quinn) is telling his two young daughters Amy (Devin Fabry) and Kim (Carla Oudin) that he and their mother are divorcing because monogamy is not realistic, repeating it like a mantra. Twenty-three years later, Amy (Amy Schumer) is a party girl who drinks too much, smokes weed and sleeps around while dating a gym-addict named Steven (John Cena).
Gordon has multiple sclerosis and has moved into a fancy assisted living home. Amy helps Kim (Brie Larson) pack Gordon’s things, who throws away a lot of his Mets memorabilia, which upsets him. Kim resents her dad because he was a drunk and cheated on their mom.
Amy goes to meet Aaron to coordinate schedules for an interview. That night Amy goes to a movie with Steven, who is upset that she is drunk. Their loud conversation gets him into a fight with another moviegoer. Amy returns to the theater after going outside to smoke a joint, when Steven then asks her about all the guys on her phone, and Amy admits she sleeps with other guys. Steven is hurt, having thought they were exclusive. Being really stoned, Amy wants to end the conversation. Steven tells her she is not a nice person and leaves, crushed.
At brunch with Kim, Amy realizes that her sister is pregnant. When they visit Gordon to tell him, he is thrilled to finally have a biological grandchild. This makes Kim angry, since she says Alistair, her step-son, is his grandchild. Kim leaves, furious.
While Amy interviews Aaron at the sports facility, she receives a text from Kim insisting they move Gordon to a cheaper facility. Amy starts to hyperventilate. Aaron calms her down, and suggests they get food. Over dinner, they begin to bond. He compliments her writing, she learns about his family. After some drinks, they go to his place and sleep together. Amy breaks her rule by staying the night.
The next day, Amy tells her co-worker Nikki (Vanessa Bayer) what happened, and Aaron calls to ask if they can see each other again. Amy panics and tells him they will talk about it at the interview. She and Nikki decide she has to end it. Meanwhile, Aaron’s friend, LeBron James, is excited for him; Aaron has not dated anyone in six years. Amy goes to watch Aaron perform surgery to “Uptown Girl“, his favorite song. Afterwards, she tries to break things off. He insists they like each other and should date. Amy then gets a phone call that her dad had a fall. Aaron drives her to the home where he tends to her dad, who immediately takes a liking to Aaron.
