Helmed by Jeremy Garelick in his feature directorial debut, the film centers on Hart, a charismatic guy named Jimmy who provides best man services for socially challenged guys who can’t get somebody to agree to stand by them on the day of their wedding.

Gad portrays a groom-to-be who finds himself in just such a situation. To make matters worse, he makes up the names of not only a best man but nine groomsmen as well. When all else fails, he seeks out Jimmy’s services to carry out a charade designed to make him look his best but threatens to destroy everything if it fails.

The film was written under the title The Golden Tux by Garelick and Jay Lavender during the time they were writing partners on films like The Break-Up.
