"This could only happen in a movie. Jake and Luhann are together and ready to marry, at least Luhann is. Jake, during a bout with cold feet and wanting to be sure he is making the right decision, has an affair with another woman. In order to be fair to his intended, Jake confesses to Luhann, who ends the relationship. Jake then gives his fiancee a deal based on payback: go out on dates with other men and find one man to sleep with. After it's out of her system, then come back to him and they can resume their relationship leading up to marriage. As if his proposal wasn't bad enough, Jake actually becomes overconfident and states to his best friend Bridges that no matter how mad she was, she was still devoted to him and this will blow over with her forgiving him and they both move on to happily ever after. What Jake doesn't realize is that his he is banking his own selfish dreams on the one thing that Luhann can't be sure of anymore-her heart. Among the many enjoyable players in this twisted game is the lead actress, Billie James, who plays Luhann with all of the strengths and weaknesses of a woman willing to accept a proposal of this magnitude and working thru all of the drama that comes with the contract. A light, entertaining piece of work."
