Carl in Molly sta se pravkar poročila in se počasi privajata na nov udoben dom v mirni soseski. Vse se spremeni, ko se v njunem življenju ali bolje stanovanju pojavi Carlov najboljši prijatelj Randy Dupree. Randy je navadna zguba, ki po cele dneve spi in se izogiba kakršnemukoli delu. Nič čudnega, da je pred kratkim ostal brez službe, stanovanja in avta. Carlu se Randy zasmili, zato privoli, da se začasno nastani pri njima. Vendar mladoporočencema hitro postane jasno, da se Randy ne namerava kmalu izseliti. Tako postane prava nadloga.
For newlyweds Carl and Molly Peterson, life can't get any sweeter as they begin anew to settle down into married life. With a nice house and established careers in tow, nothing seems to get in their way. However, Carl is about find out just how much friendship means when Dupree, his best friend has been displaced from his home and fired from his job because of attending their wedding. Taking his friend in, what Carl and Molly are about to experience is that the fine line between a few days and whatever else is after, can be a lot more than they bargained for. Especially when their friend overstays his welcome in far too many ways than he should.
