Con artist Gwen moves in to Newton's empty home without his knowledge and begins setting up house, posing as his new wife.
Meg Ryan was originally set to star as Gwen. When Ryan declined, the producers opted for Kim Basinger. But Basinger also declined, so Goldie Hawn took the part.
Newton Davis: It's not a marriage! It is a simple arrangement in which I will share my house with her and in exchange for which she will argue with me in public and generally make my life incredibly terrible.
Marty: That's marriage.
About 37 mins in, when Steve Martin falls over the couch and hits his feet on the table, Goldie Hawn briefly grimaces and looks at the crew possibly expecting a 'cut' before the scene continues as scripted.
