When it comes to engagement rings, Newton Davis truly believes that “bigger is better,” and when he proposes to Becky, instead of the traditional ring, he presents her with a house. Unfortunately, Becky refuses and a heartbroken Davis leaves the house as it is; with the giant ribbon still wrapped around it. Still in shambles over the break-up with Becky, he meets Gwen, a compulsive liar. After being deserted following a night of passion, Gwen seeks out the house, using a picture Davis drew on the back of a napkin. She moves in and acts like she owns the place, spinning an elaborate tale of her whirlwind courtship, and eventually, marriage to Davis. Unaware of his house guest, Newton decides to sell the house, and upon arrival discovers Gwen has fully furnished the home, using Davis’ credit, and has no intentions of leaving. Davis finds himself in the middle of a huge lie, and has to go along with the plan in hopes that Becky will want him back, and after he “divorces” Gwen, he can finally have the life he’s always dreamed of with Becky. The only problem is, the entire town is working against him in an effort to keep him and Gwen together.
