Film details


Romantic comedy. Plastic surgeon Danny has always pretended to be married in order to have relationships without expectations of commitment. However, this backfires when, on one occasion when he has removed his prop wedding ring, he sparks with Palmer, a young school teacher. Palmer soon discovers the ring in his pocket and is horrified to think he is married and she has wrecked a marriage. Danny assures her he is just about to be divorced, and to cement the lie he persuades his assistant/receptionist Katherine to pose as his estranged wife. However, keeping up the pretence becomes more strained and entangled as Katherine's children and Danny's cousin, Eddie, are drawn in to the deception and Danny is obliged to take everybody on holiday to Hawaii, where Palmer thinks it they will all be able to bond. During the holiday, Danny becomes confused about who it is he really loves.
