Forty-two year old, Noah Blackmore, has spent his life in business, and on building his fortune, so he never had time for a wife, nor did he want one. Now, though, he has enough money, and no one to share it with, so his closest friend, Harold Andrews, suggests to Noah, that he marry, and he has someone in mind, the seventeen year old Juliet Baxter. Noah thinks the idea is absurd, he can be the girl's father, and not only that, he doesn't want the responsibility of a wife, but Harold continues persisting, so Noah humors him, and meets the young girl. Juliet Baxter is nothing but a money hungry flirt, but upon meeting Juliet, he meets her spinster cousin, the thirty year old Helen Baxter, who also happens to be the opposite of Juliet. He's taken with Helen, but everyone does their best to separate Noah from Helen, and have him marry Juliet.

Saying that Juliet is popular makes me squirm a little because I think of a coquettish girl who uses her feminine charm to make men lust after her

                              but i feel ppl who have withdrawn form marriage because of  strong reasons and they are not just shifted form those perceptions even by a closest friends deal. if a friend pushes then he will not wait till his friend become 40!

Oh, my goodness, I just saw who you cast as Harry! Must admit, I did not imagine Hugh Laurie but I love him so much!

What are the stakes? If Noah marries, Harold can make a humorous toast as the best man?
