When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial dater Casey, a casual drink turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds, the couple quickly find they’re not alone. In an unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron’s inner critics take on a life of their own when other patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents. Can the couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the bill arrives?
