Lizzy (Elisha Cuthbert) and Luke (Nick Zano) are lifelong best friends. She's an uptight lesbian and he's a charming womanizer. They follow up on a pledge to have a child together. Before she tells him that she's pregnant, he announces that he has met the love of his life and plans to marry the British Prudence (Kelly Brook) who needs help to stay in the country.
These are perfectly workable comic actors but they are given the broadest and most cheapest of material. I like Cuthbert but she's playing slightly against type as uptight. It doesn't always work but I do like the attempt. Zano is a beautiful man with loads of charm. Brook has two big assets and her wild big personality do grow on me. The biggest problem is that the writing is groan inducing most of the time. The friend characters are boring. If the writing isn't so bad, the actors could have salvage something.
