Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer star along with young Angus T. Jones as three males from two generations, each learning what it really means to be a man. Charlie is a well-to-do bachelor with a house at the beach, a Jaguar in the garage and an easy way with women.
His casual Malibu lifestyle is interrupted when his tightly wound brother, Alan, who's facing a divorce, and Alan's son, Jake, come to stay with him. Together, these two and a half men confront the challenges of growing up - finally. Complicating matters are the brothers' self-obsessed, controlling mother, Evelyn (Holland Taylor), and Alan's estranged wife, Judith (Marin Hinkle).
