Everyone says the first year of marriage is the hardest, or at least, everyone loves telling that story to newlyweds. Why is that? It’s almost like when someone gets a chance at a once in a lifetime moment of happiness, someone else has to come in and rain on the parade!
Poor newlyweds Nat (Byrne) and Josh (Rafe) are about to embark on their first year of marriage. Although, when I say ‘poor’ newlyweds, they are attractive, have great jobs and a lovely apartment but what they don’t have is longevity. In what could be considered a whirlwind romance, they marry after just nine months of knowing each other. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that they are still in the beginnings of getting to know one another, so perhaps a tough first year it to be expected in this case. At least, that’s what Nat’s pessimistic sister (Driver), has predicted on the day of the wedding, no less.
What doesn’t help the situation is an ex-girlfriend named Chloe (Faris) who is still in the picture as a very good friend to Nat’s new husband. Unfortunately Nat didn’t know about their past relationship until it is revealed at a little friendly dinner. That dinner didn’t ended with less friendliness and sparked some mistrust in the relationship.
Enter Guy (Baker), an Aussie favourite! He is a fast-talking, suave businessman with eyes only for Nat! He makes it his mission to get to know her better and perhaps convince her into some romantic times. He is yet to see a wedding ring, so the gloves are off!
Imagine what happens when all four of these lovebirds are forced to be in each other’s company. Will Nat and Josh band together or be forced apart? Will they last their first year of marriage, even when everyone around them insists it is the hardest? More importantly, will Nat’s sister ever be happy?
