Tim (Marc McClure) is a single businessman with little ambition. Nancy (Jennifer Edwards) works at a video store and takes useless college classes that get her no closer to graduation. After Tim places a personal ad in the local newspaper, he endures a series of bad dates. When finally he meets Nancy, Tim pretends to own a business, while she claims to be a professor. Although the two have little in common, they try to make things work as the real truth about each starts to emerge.
