Brooke Shields stars as Charlene, the American wife of Vincenzo Scocozza (Pierfrancesco Favino), a struggling Italian artist who wants to make a name for himself in New York's cutting-edge art scene. However there's one slight problem - he's already married!
When Maria (Maria Grazia Cucinotta), Vincenzo's Italian wife, travels from Italy with her two kids, she's not amused to find her husband living with the very pregnant Charlene, whose fury matches anything Maria can dish out.
But both women soon find themselves united against Paul Parmesan (Chevy Chase), a self-serving home shopping magnate who tries to exploit them both while lining his own pockets.
Love takes a beating and comes back fighting in this hilarious unconventional comedy about a very unconventional family.
