Synopsis

Tired of being rejected by social-climbing girlfriends and having overdrawn bank accounts, three single friends -- Tom, a struggling artist recently dumped by his girlfriend for her wealthy orthodontist; Mark, a functioning neurotic and recently fired gym teacher; and Jason, a good-looking actor who moonlights as a house-sitter while waiting for his big break -- decide to give up on love. They're ready to marry for the only thing that seems to matter: money. Armed with a borrowed Malibu beach house and some quick cash -- courtesy of a dangerous loan shark -- the trio attempts to seduce and marry wealthy women before Christmas Eve. With a little help from a mysterious street Santa Claus, the guys ultimately must decide which matters most: money or true love.
