conversation. Daughter says nervously: "Uh, Mom, maybe this
would be a good time to tell you about Steve." Meg says
Daughter says quickly: "Ummm, Steve--your date for tonight

Fifteen year old Lindsey decides that her divorced mom has been single and lonely for far too long. Problem is, Meg isn't interested in dating again. With the help of her friend, Lindsey concocts an elaborate plan to change Meg's mind, starting with a diet, exercise and fashion makover. Pretending to be Meg, they place a personal ad and carry on a correspondence with Steve. However, it isn't Steve replying to their letters, it's his meddlesome sister Nancy who is likewise trying to fix him up.
The chemistry is electrifying when Meg and Steve meet, but they are so furious at the way they've been manipulated by their families that they decide to teach them a lesson. Meg pretends to be a trashy woman of ill-repute when she meets Nancy, and Steve pretends to be an ex-con when he meets Lindsey. This all backfires when Meg and Steve fall in love and cannot convince their families that they aren't really the raunchy characters they presented themselves as. Establishing trust and gaining the acceptance of their families is further complicated by some very funny mishaps.
