Matrimonial Russian Roulette Wedding Daze: What's the Worst That Can Happen?

Anderson (Jason Biggs of American Pie notoriety) and Vanessa (Audra Blaser) are the perfect couple, destined to eventually tie the knot. When Anderson musters up the courage to propose, he does so naked, donning only a cupid's arrow and heart.

Anderson (Jason Biggs of American Pie notoriety) and Vanessa (Audra Blaser) are the perfect couple, destined to eventually tie the knot. When Anderson musters up the courage to propose, he does so naked, donning only a cupid's arrow and heart. While such a proposal may be appropriate in private, his decision to pop the question in a busy restaurant certainly was not. Before Anderson finishes a sentence Vanessa experiences a heart attack, and drops dead in embarrassment.

The following months were filled with sorrow. No woman could replace Vanessa, prohibiting him from pursuing a new relationship. Best friend Ted (Michael Weston) attempts to lift Anderson's spirits and suggests a radical solution: simply propose to a random, attractive woman. He begrudgingly agrees, expecting a firm 'no!' in response. Instead his target, a waitress, accepts his proposal immediately -- much to Anderson's and the entire diner's amazement.

Katie (Isla Fisher) is unhappily dating William (Chris Diamantopoulos), and searching for a means to escape the relationship. Marriage to another man, she decides, is the ultimate solution to her woes. Within a day Katie moves into Anderson's apartment and meets his sex-crazed parents: Lyle (Edward Herrmann) and Betsy (Margo Martindale). Despite some minor grievances Betsy and Lyle feel comfortable with their future daughter-in-law. More importantly, Anderson and Katie seem to be compatible partners, especially considering their unorthodox pairing.

Things begin to unhinge however when Katie's dad, Smitty (Joe Pantoliano) breaks out of jail to attend the wedding. When the bride makes an offensive comment about Vanessa, Anderson brings the event to a halt. Meanwhile William seizes this discord and attempts to woo Vanessa back into his arms. Is Anderson destined to a life of bachelorhood?
