In the city of New York, highly-strung stockbroker Joy (Cameron Diaz) is dumped by her fiance, while laid-back carpenter Jack (Ashton Kutcher) is fired from his job. Both were very emotionally distraught, they both travel to Las Vegas with their best friends where they meet in a hotel room that had been double booked. After clearing up the misunderstanding at the reception, they proceed to engage in a night of partying resulting in the two getting married in an inebriated ceremony. Soon they decide to divorce, at which time Jack takes a quarter from Joy and drops it into a slot machine as she walks away. He hits a $3,000,000 triple-jackpot. They were supposed to go on their separate ways but due to the money the two must figure out a way to share it since they are still legally married. Once back in New York, a judge declares that the couple cannot divorce until they attempt to co-exist for six months, while being monitored by a marriage counselor (Queen Latifah) weekly.

As the newlyweds devise more and more cunning schemes to undermine one another and keep the other's share, Jack and Joy ironically find themselves developing an unexpected attraction to one another...[1
