Hunky divorce lawyer Jason Maxwell Davenport is frowned upon by colleagues because he often advices clients to reconsider filing and seek therapy or just patch up their marriage. He's puzzled when becoming the latest victim of Rylee, a bitter bachelor he picked up but was dumped by on their first night after she found a wedding ring in his wallet. She assumes him another adulterer, whom she can blackmail by pretending he sired 'her' child, actual a baby she picks up from her loose ma Doris's daycare center. Jason and his buddy would be-womanizer Brad, who also recruits an actress, find out and try to turn the tables on her. Rylee and her friend, an unemployed actress with no more ethics, keep pushing their bluff. Written by
Our female star has a very PG-looking one night stand (both parties are completely dressed when they wake up the next morning), but then (a year later) she appears at the office of our male star, baby in tow, and seeking $100,000 to keep it quiet. But is she "for real"? Is his response for real? Is anyone in this movie for real? In fact, almost no one is real other than the preacher, and we know that because his earnest assertions are juxtaposed with everyone else's denials.
Everything about this movie is so bad that it becomes strangely irresistible (in a very odd way) on account of its awful-ness. The premise is preposterous, but it gets even more amazing thanks to the completely goofy plot twists.
It only makes sense if you make believe that Drew Carey is on the sidelines telling the actors that there's a scene changes every five minutes (a la "Whose Line is it Anyway?"). Then, even if each scene makes just about no sense when compared to the previous one, and even though it sounds like the actors are making up their lines as they go along, it (sort of) works.
