Joe Tyler (Matthew Perry) has to talk and think fast for a living. He used to be a lawyer, but since being disbarred, the only job he can get is hunting down defendants and handing them legal summons to appear in court. Joe relies on his quick witted charm to issue papers to America's most wanted, but when Joe is sent to serve divorce papers to unsuspecting millionairess Sara Moore (Elizabeth Hurley), he's surprised to find himself tongue tied and hypnotised. The stunning Sara soon realises that the settlement excludes her from every penny of the multi million-dollar cattle business which she has built herself! Bent on turning the tables on her low-life husband Gordon (Bruce Campbell) she offers Joe one million dollars to serve the papers to her husband instead. Joe agrees, and together they begin a madcap race across country with hilarious consequences. In a race against time, can they save Sara's money, her dignity, her prize-winning bull Tornado?
