Lee is his usual nondescript self as Paul, who's engaged to uptight Karen (Blair), but wakes up next to stranger Becky (Stiles) after his stag night. Panic ensues as he must usher out his apparent one-night stand before his fiancée arrives - and so begins a series of farcical scenes based on his attempts to hide the truth. All this is very loosely held together by the notion that all men, even strangers, have a wordless pact to keep each other's dirty deeds secret. Belly laughs are scarce, though, as the lacklustre film lurches from one middling set piece to another, pausing to add in the requisite romance with a reluctance that's as damaging as the lack of chemistry between Lee and the usually reliable Stiles.
