Modern Men offers a fresh male perspective on modern relationships. Tim Clarke, Kyle Brewster, and Doug Reynolds are childhood friends who, now in their late twenties, have arrived at different places in their lives when it comes to women. Desperate for advice and guidance in matters of the heart, they seek the help of Dr. Victoria Stangel, a renowned and beautiful life coach.
The problems these three friends have with women are all over the emotional map. Doug can't move on from Allie, his high school sweetheart and ex-wife. Learning how to date again is especially tough for Doug since the last time he was single and looking was when he was 15. Kyle has the opposite problem. An inveterate Lothario, Kyle cavalierly jumps from woman to woman in order to hide the fact that, secretly, he's terrified that no one out there pictures him as the one. Finally, Tim's problem is simply that he keeps getting dumped and has no idea why. Though their situations are different, each of these guys has come to the same realization--it takes a lot more than they expected to keep a woman happy.
Hoping to teach the guys to consider the needs of others, Dr. Stangel, asks each of them to do an utterly selfless act. Doug tutors a 10-year-old named Victor, but is so obsessive that he pushes the kid away. Kyle sleeps with a plus size woman named Ellen and is shocked to find that she feels she’s doing him a favor. Tim falls for Angelica, a woman fighting world hunger, but asks her to give up her fight when she is asked to move to Africa to continue her work.
