Synopsis

On a flight home to Chicago for a family wedding, childhood friends Josh and Molly innocently agree to fake a wedding engagement to make Josh's dying father happy.  Things quickly get out of hand with their two boisterous families, and a series of events causes them to pretend to be a couple and start planning a phony wedding.  When the playacting begins to foster real feelings, the two must make some serious decisions - split up and return to their lives in Los Angeles, or make a life as a couple back in Chicago...?

PLOT SUMMARY: Molly Mahoney (Aubrey Dollar) is flying home to Chicago for her mom's wedding... bringing a "Mystery Man" with her, but when she discovers this Mystery Man has a Mystery Wife, she dumps him at the curbside check-in.

She ends up crying on the shoulder of childhood friend Josh Shiffman (Shane McRae), who is flying home for the same wedding.  Emotionally drained, Molly passes out in Josh's arms just as he gets a phone call from his parents.  Josh learns that his father is dying and his only regret is that he will not get to meet the woman who will one day become his son's wife.

Desperate to fulfill his dad's final wish, Josh claims he has already met that woman... close family friend: Molly Mahoney.  

When Josh sheepishly confesses his ruse in mid-flight Molly is furious, making him promise to right the wrong the moment they land.  Only when they arrive - it's too late!  

Word has leaked out and they are swarmed at the airport by BOTH FAMILIES with well wishes and congratulatory banners.  Molly's family is delighted that her "Mystery Man" turns out to be Josh, and Josh's dad is thrilled that his Playboy son is finally settling down with a nice girl they've known all their lives.

Josh convinces Molly to play fiancée by using a deadly combination her Catholic Guilt and his Playboy Charm.

But as they plan their phony wedding... the two of them start to fall in love for real.  This turns their dating lives, and family's interactions hilariously upside down tugging on every heartstring in the process.
