My Fake Fiance


A sham marriage leads to genuine romance for a woman who lost everything and a guy who’s in debt to a vicious loan shark. Her moving van stolen, Jennifer (Melissa Joan Hart) is left with nothing but three throw pillows and a cardboard box. Meanwhile, thirtysomething charmer Vince (Joey Lawrence) has racked up a rather serious gambling debt. Should he fail to pay up soon, he’s likely to wind up crippled for life. Having recently met at the wedding of a mutual friend, Jennifer and Vince surmise that the best way to make some quick cash is to take a trip to the altar themselves. If everything goes as planned, Jennifer will keep the items on the registry, and Vince can avoid becoming a punching bag for a bookie’s thugs. Then, they’ll have a quickie divorce and everyone will be happy. But in order for the plan to work, they’ll have to act like genuine lovebirds. Trouble is, Vince and Jennifer already bicker like a couple married for decades. The closer the wedding gets, however, the more the prospective bride and groom find their fake affections taking on an air of authenticity.

Dove Review

Jennifer and Vince are a comical pair after they meet at a friend’s wedding. At first they seem to be total opposites: Jennifer is opinionated and Vince is in trouble with a loan shark.

When situations for both turn into real financial problems, they get together and plan a way to get out from under their troubles. They decide to get married–Jennifer to use the expected gifts and Vince to use the money–but when unexpected feelings start to grow, things change when the moment really counts.

This is a hilarious comedy about how love can find a way in the most unexpected circumstances, and sometimes at the last moment. Due to some content we award this movie with the Dove Family Approved Seal for 12+.
