Jimmie (Chris O'Donnell) and Anne (Renée Zellweger) are in a committed relationship, but the pressure is mounting on Jimmie to propose.

Jimmie soon finds out that he has one day to find a woman and marry her; otherwise he will lose out on his hefty inheritance. What ensues is a crazed search through Jimmie's past to find a suitable bride.
