A writer believes the key to solving his many troubles with the opposite sex can be found by retracing the steps of his youth. Science-fiction scribe John Henderson (Albert Brooks) can't find a solid relationship, so he moves back in with his mother, Beatrice (Debbie Reynolds). John means well, and he seems to genuinely believe that a better understanding of his mom will lead to dating success. But when they begin to bicker, both start rethinking the arrangement.
Molly Brown (Debbie Reynolds) is determined to rise from her country roots and marry a rich man. She finds one in Johnny Brown (Harve Presnell), who's just sold off his lucrative claim on a Colorado silver mine. With the cash hidden in a stove, Molly accidentally burns it. But Johnny soon strikes it rich in gold, making the pair Denver royalty. But money doesn't ensure happiness and, with their union on the rocks, Molly travels to Europe -- before making an eventful return trip on the Titanic.
