Synopsis: Steve Thompson (Josh Lawson) is the youngest son in the gloriously flawed Thompson family. In a bid to save himself from financial ruin so he can marry the love of his life, Jacqui, Steve agrees to marry Ana (Isabel Lucas), a Russian woman seeking a Green card in exchange for a huge sum of cash.

Behind closed doors, the deal is done. A secret wedding is arranged and in no time life will be back to normal, or so Steve thinks…until a nosy family friend gets wind of the wedding plans and before sundown the whole Thompson family is gripped by wedding fever.

What was once a private affair is now a fully-fledged spectacle as Steve’s lie takes on a life of its own racing towrad the world’s most farcical wedding!
