In New York City, American Brontë Parrish and Frenchman Georges Fauré enter into a marriage of convenience, they not even actually meeting, introduced by their mutual friend Anton who arranged the union, until the day of the civil marriage ceremony.

The reason for Georges wanting to be married: he, an aspiring composer who has been is the States for five months, has long overstayed his tourist visa, and wants to be a permanent resident to get his green card, marrying an American which will solve that issue. The reason for Brontë wanting to get married: she, a horticulturist, needs to be married to be accepted as the new tenant for her dream apartment, which contains a greenhouse with a collection of exotic but currently neglected plants, plus an expansive patio where she can grow plants for her research.

Georges repeatedly tells immigration officers about his Africa trips. The script overlooks that fact that INS would have or request a copy of his passport to process his case. In real life, INS would have realized immediately that the Africa story was not real: no entry/departure stamps in his passport. See more »

This is a great date movie. I love it how they fall in love, despite they're difference. I also love it how she loves him for him, and not this built up romantic image that many American woman have about French men. (This is quite evident throughout the movie) Obviously the movie is just like the tag line, but how they get their, is a wonderful story within itself. I recommend this for anyone who wants to see a great date movie, and who doesn't mind a movie set in the 80s.
