Why, go on stage and have a freakout and impulsively marry a guy from the crowd. That guy is Charlie (Owen Wilson), a math teacher who is divorced. “Can two people from such different worlds bridge the gulf between them and build a place where they both belong?” Fans will have to go to the movie to find out if they get their happily ever after.
