The story revolves around a divorced father (Robin) of
6-year-old twins and his womanizing best friend/business partner
(Travolta) who have their hands full when they're forced to care for the
kids for two weeks.
Dillon will play the overzealous leader of the summer camp where they take the kids. He is ultraconservative and thinks the two men are actually gay lovers who have adopted the twins. He keeps a sharp eye on the two at all times.
"It's basically the idea that old dogs can learn new tricks," laughed Williams. "It's about two men in what they call the twilight of the golden years, older men. My character finds out that he has twins that he didn't know about and then the kids are suddenly told 'This is your dad, and you're going to stay with him for the weekend'."
"John's character is a really hardcore bachelor, who thinks that the idea of having kids around would be great for cougar bait," laughed the spastic "License to Wed" star, adding, "For those of you who don't know what a cougar is, check online: Single white females, or single females looking for husbands."
Once the guys start watching "SpongeBob," they find that the world looks quite different from a child's perspective. "The idea of you having children really appeals [to some women]," Williams said of the flick, referring to the character of Travolta's real-life wife and co-star Kelly.
"It's learning about life," the Oscar-winner proclaimed. "What are you going to do now, smart boy, that you're single at the age of 50? ... That is the essence of the movie."(Source: MTV - reproduced in part)
