  • Overview
  • Details
Jimmie (Chris O'Donnell) stands to inherit a fortune on the condition he's hitched by his 30th birthday -- which happens to be in 27 hours. Having tactlessly popped the question to his girlfriend (Renée Zellweger) and been flatly refused, Jimmie desperately needs to find a missus fast. But every woman rejects him until his buddy Marco (Artie Lange) places a newspaper ad -- and the tactic works a little too well.

Jimmie's grandfather tells Jimmie to procreate quickly because marriages sour over time. One ex-girlfriend remembers how they "screwed a couple times." Female genitals are compared to flowers.
