Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan play a married couple in the upcoming comedy Ideal Home which is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on June 21.

The film follows the catty but loving relationship of popular TV chef Erasmus (Coogan) and husband Paul (Rudd). Their everyday lives are turned upside-down when it’s discovered that Erasmus has a young grandson, Bill (Jack Gore), whose dad has recently gone to jail.

The 10-year-old inserts himself into their celebrity lives after Erasmus and Paul decide to care for him while his dad is locked up.

The situation not only calls for the couple to make adjustments to their lives, i.e. removing porn parodies such as "Bareback Mountain" and "Sex Wars: Phantom Ass" from their DVD collection, but their tween houseguest must also come to terms with this arrangement. 

Andrew Fleming who is most notable for his 1996 film The Craft wrote the script and also directs.
