It’ll walk you down the aisle, and far, far beyond: starting with a meet cute in a haunted house, we leap around both time and space–from historic Pompeii to an awkward first date; a new type of career aptitude test to the logical conclusion of Air Bud–all leading up to wedding bells that have never rung so hilariously wrong.
