Any viewer who recognizes Kyle Bornheimer from his commercial for T-mobile—he was the guy flubbing a voice-mail message over and over—won't be surprised to see him elevated to sitcom stardom. He has a fresh, charming way of hemming and hawing while failing to finesse awkward situations. It's like watching someone parallel-park a truck in a spot big enough for a Mini Cooper. Here he's a well-meaning bumbler whose every attempt to impress his fiancée's parents ends in slapstick disaster. It's Curb Your Enthusiasm with nicer people.
