A lifelong bachelor tries to get his friend married within a month to win a huge sum of money. Michael Delaney is in desperate need of money. While in Vegas for a friend's wedding, he pretended to be a casino hot shot in order to try to lure a beautiful woman into bed with him, and he ended up accruing an enormous amount of debt. Carlos, the owner of the casino, has a simple but fair proposition for Michael: come up with the money he owes in one month, or the casino's thugs will hunt him down and kill him. Michael is a humble animator with no way of making the money through hard work... but he has a plan. When he and his six best friends were younger, in their swinging bachelor heyday, they made a pact while at a wedding: they would each invest a good deal of money into one fund, and that fund would serve as a prize for the man who remained single the longest. Only two bachelors remain: Michael and his friend Kyle. In order to win the money and prevent the casino from murdering him, he must convince Kyle to get married in the next month. Luckily for Michael, Kyle told him recently that he thinks about the woman he slept with years ago at the wedding the night of the pact. Michael thinks she'd be the ideal candidate. The woman, Natalie Parker, is a police officer who agrees to see Kyle, and they begin to fall for each other. Things escalate when Kyle has to have a cancerous testicle removed, and Natalie spends a lot of time in the hospital with him. Michael realizes at this time that he has fallen in love with her as well. Kyle proposes, but he confides in Michael that he intends on continuing his bachelor ways even after he's officially settled down. Michael attempts to stop the wedding, but he's too late. This wins him the money, which he gives to the casino, saving his life-- but he's depressed that he's lost Natalie. However, when he sees Kyle a couple of days later, Kyle informs him that Natalie dumped him that night, in revenge for Kyle kicking her out of his car when they had their one-night-stand the night of the pact. Their marriage was annulled, and she was back on the market. Michael finds her while she's on the job and proposes on the spot-- she says yes.

Best part of story, including ending:
This is a pretty terrible movie, that really treats women as idiotic objects. O'Connell and Busey are about as unappealing as leading actors get.
Best scene in story:
At a wedding, they all drink wine that's been laced with erectile dysfunction medicine, causing them all to become aroused during the ceremony.
Opinion about the main character:
Michael is a despicable guy, who comes up with the worst possible plan to get money, cheats and lies to everyone around him, and all of his friends are terrible people. Not a good hero.
