Danny Maccabee (Adam Sandler) is a plastic surgeon who pretends he's unhappily married to pick up women. That is until he meets the beautiful Palmer (Brooklyn Decker) - a young schoolteacher with whom he thinks he could have a future.
Unfortunately she finds his fake wedding band and calls everything off. Desperate, he seeks the advice of his colleague, Katherine (Jennifer Aniston), who suggests he talk his way out of it by telling Palmer he's getting divorced, which he does, only for her to insist on hearing it from his ex.
Now comes the big favour - Danny begs Katherine to pose as his estranged wife. Everything is going well, until Katherine accidentally mentions her kids... As one lie evolves into another, only a fated trip to Hawaii can decide the outcome of this twisted love triangle.
