Carlos Munoz (Cheech Marin) is down on his luck and can't find work in the United States. He decides to travel to Sydney, Australia, thinking that he'll find brighter prospects down under. Unfortunately, Carlos can only find a lowly position at a local Mexican restaurant. There he meets the whiny and cold-hearted Australian heiress, Alexandra (Emma Sams) whose father doesn't want her to marry her smooth-talking boyfriend, Bruce (Vernon Wells). Alexandra, however, will do anything to irritate her well-to-do father. She decides to give Carlos a more profitable job by hiring him to pose as her new fianc''. She's sure the ruse is working, but she doesn't know how she feels about Carlos. When her father begins to see through the facade, Alexandra must decide if her destiny lies with the smooth talking footballer or her mock relationship with a blue collar American.moreless
