Jimmie Shannon is a young man whose grandfather recently passed away, and subsequently left him a $100 million inheritance, in addition to the highly lucrative family business, there is one catch, however, Jimmie must wed before the age of thirty to get access to the money.
That is easier said than done, especially since his 30th birthday is in 24 hours. Despite being in a relationship for the past three years, the longest he has ever remained with one woman, Shannon is terrified of commitment.
His girlfriend, Anne Arden, has been pressuring him to settle down, and recently he attempted to. Unfortunately Jimmie�s marriage proposal was less than flattering, as he uttered �You win� while slipping Anne an engagement ring. Furious that he viewed marriage as a burden, rather than expression of love, Anne flees to Greece.
The following day Jimmie meets a lawyer, who reveals that his deceased grandfather, James has left him millions of dollars. Receiving the cash is dependent upon the following conditions, however: marrying before the age of 30, bearing children to carry on the family legacy within 5 years, spending no more than one night each month apart from his wife, and remaining together for at least 10 years.
With Anne outside of the country, Jimmie may be passing up the chance of a lifetime. Luckily best friend Marco has a plan: marry any woman who will accept Jimmie�s proposal within the next 24 hours. Strangely, even a massive dowry fails to convince the playboy�s former girlfriends to tie the knot, and he unbelievably botches each proposal. Some of his potential candidates included characters depicted by the likes of Brooke Shields, singer Mariah Carey, and actress/comedian Sarah Silverman.
Yet Marco has not thrown in the towel, and publishes a front-page matrimonial ad in the local newspaper, informing all women of their potential goldmine.
The next day thousands of prospective brides, all donning wedding gowns chase Jimmie down the street, hoping to cash in. Still, he cannot say yes to any of them, knowing that Anne is his true love.
But how can he possibly attempt another proposal with her thousands of miles away? Also, will Anne even be willing to accept his offer, especially since Jimmie has just asked thousands of anonymous women the same question?
