Adorable as she is ambitious, Kate (Jennifer Aniston) is determined to turn her mid-level advertising job into an executive position - and equally determined to tries snare Sam (Kevin Bacon), the agency's ultra-suave Romeo who prefers illicit affairs with attached women. She achieves both goals by pretending to get married to Nick (Jay Mohr), a man she met at a wedding and barely knows. But her carefully constructed fictional life comes face to face with reality when her boss wants to meet Nick, sending Kate's personal and professional worlds spinning out of control.

Tired '90s romcom filled with deception, sexual innuendo.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Kate lies to her boss, inventing a fiancé to give herself an air of stability. Much of the plot revolves around finessing farcical situations caused by the lie. Kate has an unrequited crush on the playboy Sam, but he only pursues her upon hearing news of her engagement, thinking she's unavailable. Kate wants to sustain the lie to keep him interested. They kiss in bed without clothes, but no body parts are shown. Characters say "s--t," "sucks," and "damn" and make sexual allusions. They also drink alcohol. There's not a lot here to interest kids, unless they're die-hard Jennifer Aniston fans.
