Kate (Anna Faris) is a single,
working-class mother of three who's hired to clean a
luxury yacht that belongs to Leonardo (Eugenio

playboy. After unjustly firing Kate, Leonardo falls off
the boat and wakes up with no memory of who he is. To
get payback, Kate shows up at the hospital and convinces

tries to get used to manual labor and his new family,
Kate starts to wonder how long she can keep fooling her
fake husband. A cute and funny remake of the Goldie Hawn
