导演：吉姆·弗尔三十多岁的希拉里·伯恩斯(Hillary Burns)花了一生的时间试图获得父母(最具体地说是她爱挑剔的母亲梅雷迪思·伯恩斯Meredith Burns)的认可，但至今没有成功。 对希拉里的部分认可是嫁给合适的人。 这就是为什么希拉里非常高兴她与成功的律师詹森·金订婚，她将带他回家在一周后的感恩节聚会周末与家人第一次见面； 然而，希拉里的生活开始分崩离析，同时她失去了她的兼职报纸写作工作(当报纸本身倒闭时)，杰森抛弃了她，专注于他的职业生涯(这对他来说似乎比希拉里更重要)。 在她最好的朋友索菲的建议下，希拉里--她觉得没有杰森她不能回家(特别是她的两个姐妹的生活似乎满足了她们母亲的认可)--不情愿地决定去一个在线约会网站，找一个人在即将到来的家庭周末假扮杰森。 她找到大卫，一个演员..。Thirty-something Hillary Burns has spent her life trying to get the approval of her parents (most specifically her judgmental mother, Meredith Burns) thus far without success. Part of that approval for Hillary is to marry the right man. That's why Hillary is so happy she is engaged to successful lawyer Jason King, whom she will bring home to meet the family for the first time at their Thanksgiving get-together weekend in a week's time; however, Hillary's life starts to fall apart when simultaneously she loses her part-time newspaper writing job (when the newspaper itself folds) and Jason dumps her to focus on his career (which is seemingly more important to him than Hillary). On the advice of her best friend Sophie, Hillary - who feels she can't go home without Jason (especially as her two sisters' lives seem to meet their mother's approval) - decides reluctantly to go to an online dating site to find someone to pose as Jason for the upcoming family weekend. She finds David, an actor who seems to be struggling with his own life; but, as an actor, she figures he can at least treat it like a real acting job (which he hasn't had in a while). It may be a struggle for David to pretend to be Jason for four days, especially as Hillary's politician father, Roy Burns, always seems to be seeking legal advice. Those problems may be compounded by Hillary herself, who treats David like the real Jason in the hopes that all the wedding planning she goes through with Meredith will end up not going to waste in the possibility that Jason may come back to her. By the end of the weekend, Hillary may finally come to some realizations about her mother and her sisters (the latter whose lives aren't as perfect as on first glance) and what - and perhaps who - she herself really wants in life, especially as an unexpected person also shows up for the weekend.
