The "black sheep" son of a rich family meets a young psychiatric patient who's been raised in isolation her entire life. He takes the naïve young woman home for his brother's wedding to convince his family that he's finally straightened out his life. She impresses the family with her genuine, if unstable charm. Along the way they fall into an improbable love.

Barbara VanDenburgh of the Arizona Republic rated the film 1.5 out of 5 stars and called the film an "offensively infantilizing [...] spectacularly wrong-headed, chemistry-free romance, and too dumb to know how sexist it is" and calling Evan Rachel Wood's character "a cartoon character" similar to the Little Mermaid who "all but brushes her hair with a fork".
