After Artie Decker, Sports Commentator for the minor-league Fresno Grizzlies is fired from his job due to his old school talk and lack of social media, his eager-to-please wife, Diane, agrees to babysit their three grandkids, Harper, Turner and Barker in Atlanta when their daughter, Alice and her husband, Phillip go away for an entrepreneur exhibition. Problems arise as Artie's and Diane's parenting skills collide with Alice and Phillip's helicopter parenting. After learning of the children's various problems, such as Harper's high achievement syndrome, Turner's stutter and Barker's imaginary friend, they try to make the children their new best friends.
