Ellie and Dan are living proof that opposites attract.
He always follows instructions and she throws the manual away.
He loves sports whereas Ellie's allergic to any form of exercise.
Ellie doesn't have a mother. And Dan does - a mother who wants to take over ... EVERYTHING.
At first Ellie is thrilled to have Linda as her 'adopted'mother but when she and Dan decide to get married and wedding plans progress, she starts to wonder: is it normal for Linda and Dan to speak on the phone twice a day? How on earth do they come to be having a reception with Chilean bloody seabass and humongous bloody white ribbons tied everywhere when all she wanted was a quiet registry office?
In fact, is she marrying Dan ... OR HIS MOTHER?
