Nerdy control freak Dean takes an almost scientific approach to the happiness of his girlfriend Lana, concocting the perfect schedule for their anniversary trip to the bush. He’s intent on recreating that experience – maybe a bit too intently – so after botching the romantic weekend in a major way, our luckless inventor attempts to put things right via his custom-made time-travel device. Instead, he initiates an inescapable circuit of events spawning a legion of romantic rivals.

Lana shows remarkable tolerance to all of this until her ex, Terry, shows up and Dean now has a real rival; or five.
