Jimmie Shannon je zaprisežen samec. Ker se približuje tridesetemu rojstnemu dnevu, bi se rad počasi ustalil. Edino dekle zanj je prikupna Anne. Toda Jimmie se boji resnega razmerja in vsega, kar spada zraven. Življenje mu dodatno zaplete še dedkova oporoka, po kateri se mu obeta ogromno bogastvo. Vendar le pod pogojem, da se točno na trideseti rojstni dan poroči in si nato z izvoljenko ustvari družino.
Jimmie is seeing his single friends get married one by one. He isn't too worried until his girlfriend Anne catches the bouquet at his friend Marco's wedding. Suddenly, his wild mustang days are numbered. He finally decides to propose to her, but he sticks his foot in his mouth and botches the proposal. Being insulted by the defeatist proposal, Anne leaves town on an assignment. After she's gone, he finds out that his recently-deceased grandfather's will stipulates that he gets nothing of a multi-million dollar fortune unless he's married by 6:05pm on his 30th birthday: tomorrow! Not being able to find Anne, Jimmie begins backtracking through his past girlfriends to find a wife.
