Handsome and debonair Londoner Charles (Grant) just can’t get himself to commit. And the more he sees his mates tie the knot, the less he wants to be roped in himself. But all of that changes when he meets a free-spirited American named Carrie (MacDowell). Instantly smitten, Charles begins to pursue her, only to learn that she too is ready to take the plunge … with someone else!
