Phil is one of those middle-aged American fellas that have to struggle every single day in order to provide for their families. He's got a beautiful wife and three kids. His father-in-law doesn't really like the guy, and the old man's wife, Gloria, is all Phil can think about. His children are acting up, there are some problems at work, and it seems like he's about to fall off the cliff. But the truth is - this dysfunctional family is strong, and they love each other to death, even though they don't always show that. They are different, and that's the beauty of it. Modern Family is a brutally honest, incredibly funny, smart, and insightful comedy series about a regular US family.
