Though equally respected in their field, divorce lawyers Audrey Woods (Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Julianne Moore - "Far From Heaven," "Short Cuts"), and Daniel Rafferty (Pierce Brosnan - "The Matador," "Die Another Day") are opposites inside and out of the courtroom. Audrey is meticulous and by the book, while Daniel relies on personality and luck to get by. Despite the difference in methods, neither lawyer has lost a case, and neither plan on ending their streak after being respectively hired by Serena and Thorne, a celebrity power couple gone wrong. The divorce settlement hinges on a particularly spectacular Irish castle, which both parties would like to keep for themselves. Audrey and Daniel hurry to Ireland with depositions in their eyes, but a growing mutual attraction manages to squirm out from beneath, and, after being immersed in a romantic Irish festival, the rival lawyers wake up married. Reeling, potentially in love (to Audrey in particular's dismay), and faced with the type of media explosion capable of leading to the end of their careers, the mismatched lawyers contemplate how to go about their clients' divorce hearings as man and wife. Also starring Golden Globe-nominee Parker Posey ("Superman Returns," TV's "Hell on Heels: The Battle of Mary Kay"), Michael Sheen ("Blood Diamond," "The Queen"), Frances Fisher ("Titanic," "Unforgiven") and Nora Dunn ("Out of Time," "Bruce Almighty").
