Fresh off their honeymoon, newlyweds Carl (Matt Dillon) and Molly Peterson (Kate Hudson) are ready to start their new life together in their perfect suburban home. That is, until Randy Dupree, the best man at their wedding, puts a hitch in their plans.

You see, when Dupree took off a week from work to attend the wedding he lost his job, and because he no longer has a regular paycheck coming in, he also lost his home.

When Carl hears that Dupree is so down on his luck that he has to resort to sleeping on a cot in the back room of a bar, he invites his best friend to sleep on his couch, but without first asking his wife for permission.

Obviously Molly is not too thrilled to have her new picture perfect life interrupted, but she reluctantly agrees because after all Dupree is her husband's best friend and the stay is promised to be no longer than a week.

Anybody with half a brain should already know by now that Dupree's stay is anything but temporary, and his antics, although well intended, put a serious strain on the Petersons relationship.

But it would be hard to blame anyone for getting upset when some of Dupree's goof-ups include interrupting some of Carl and Molly's quality time by stinking up the upstairs bathroom, sleeping on the couch naked, accidentally leaving out Carl's secret stash of pornography so Molly finds it, ordering premium movie channels without permission and burning down the entire living room during a date with a librarian that includes too many candles.

To make matters worse for Carl, when he is not trying to deal with Dupree's mishaps he is putting in long hours at the office because of a recent promotion from his boss, Mr. Thompson (Michael Douglas), who just so happens to Molly's father. It's also pretty obvious Mr. Thompson has a vendetta for his new son-in-law after he suggests Carl should get a vasectomy and use Thompson as part of his surname.

Because Carl has to spend most of his time working for his father-in-law, Molly is left at home all alone but she eventually learns that Dupree might not be so bad after all because of his sensitive side and skill for cooking. Carl takes their new friendship the wrong way of course, and trouble brews when he thinks the two are spending way too much time together.
