Abbie (Madonna) and Robert (Rupert Everett) are best friends with so much in common and miserable luck in love. They would make the perfect couple, but one thing prevents them from looking to each other for romance -- Robert is gay. A day comes, however, when too many cocktails and a twist of fate takes them to a new level of intimacy... and turns them into parents. Theirs may not be the perfect family -- but it is the next best thing.
