Rich bitch Joanna hires country carpenter Dean to build a closet on her yacht. When the two don't see eye-to-eye, Dean is left unpaid while Joanna sets sail.

Dean sees a neat way to regain the money she owes him... he tells her she's his wife; that way Dean gets a free housekeeper and mother for his four kids. Written by Rob Hartill

Go Kurt!!!
19 November 1998 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

This was a great film. I enjoyed it thouroughly! The casting couldn't have been better and it was hilarious! The kids were great and made me laugh! Kurt did another excellent job. All those who are fanatics for edge of your seat thrillers, don't even comment on this movie, go see Soldier or something, maybe you'll like that better. "Typical 80's trash" WHATEVER!!! Just enjoy the story, I loved it. Kurt you are such a cutie and you and Goldy belong with each other, (but I'm sure you already know that!) 10/10!!!
