Imagine what happens when a mild-mannered couple, accidentally and forcibly had to endure a wild and free couple throughout their entire romantic holiday. 

Marcus and Emily (the mild ones) just arriving in Mexico and Marcus has everything planned meticulously, as he wants to propose to Emily there. The plan is ruined when their room is flooded by a leaking jacuzzi from the presidential suite above theirs. Dismayed, Marcus proposes to Emily in the hotel lobby and a wild couple, Ron and Kyla, watches the whole proposal.

Ron invites the newly engaged couple to stay in their suite throughout their vacation - and guess what - their room is the presidential suite and it is their jacuzzi that leaks into a room below. 

Slowly, albeit reluctant, Marcus and Emily joins Ron and Kyla in every activity throughout their vacation there. The last night of their vacation, the couples were drunk.

Almost missing their flight the next day, Marcus and Emily runs to the airport and bids Ron and Kyla goodbye, secretly hoping not to see them again. And everyone returns to their daily lives.

When it was finally Marcus' wedding day, Marcus is still hasn't win over Emily's father, Harold - he thinks that Emily is marrying beneath her. And suddenly, Ron and Kyla arrives and crushes the wedding dinner. 

Harold, who is furious at the intrusion, becomes friendly with Ron when he learns that they both are former Green Berets and invites the couple to stay at the presidential suite.

Kyla informs Marcus and Emily that she is pregnant right after their vacation in Mexico. 

Emily's brother keep on pestering Marcus and reminds him that he is beneath his sister, to which Ron becomes defensive and starts defending Marcus. To a point that Marcus appoints Ron as his Best Man and not Emily's brother. 

Marcus thinks that Ron is selfish and did everything, not for his favor. And he dislikes that Harold likes Ron more than him. 

Is Ron a real friend or Marcus is too selfish to admit that Ron is a friend?
