While talking with their friends, they both agreed that the date could have gone better. Lauren & Jim come face to face again in a pharmacy. The cashier mistakenly exchanges their credit cards. Jim goes to Laurens and learns that Lauren is going on a vacation in Africa. He had also booked a resort in South Africa as Lauren did.
Jim & Lauren’s families are put together in a suite named Blended Familymoon. When they meet, the fun starts. Not only do they have to tolerate each other, but live in the suite with crazy couples. Their urge for romance hits them hard! The young couples keep on flirting with other women and men. It takes a long time for Jim & Lauren to process all this!
