Jonathan Morgan plays a wealthy psychologist who, on his wedding day, struggles with the notion of marrying a woman (Lauren Montgomery) who he's known for all of three weeks. Morgan ultimately decides to marry, but car trouble forces him to hitch a ride to the church with a stranger (Sydnee Steele), who, it happens, is on the run from an overbearing pimp/boyfriend (Mickey G). Desperate and out of cash, Steele's first impulse is to rob Morgan. She drives him to an ATM, where his plea for help to a pair of strangers turns into a genuine holdup, with Morgan losing his wallet, the cash —everything. The bulk of the film details Morgan and Steele's efforts to recover his wallet and get to the wedding, all the while trying to evade Mickey G.

If all of that sounds like a promising setup for an adult flick, it is. And for the most part, the filmmakers come through. The acting is solid all-around, the sex is decent throughout, picture and sound are outstanding, and there are some genuinely funny and quirky moments in the film. Pre-nom Sydnee Steele and Morgan in the lead roles; Tina Tyler as Best Supporting Actress; a terrific Lauren Montgomery/Lacy Ogden girl/girl; and Jack Remy's cinematography.

The one weakness in this otherwise fine production is that it can't seem to decide if it's a comedy, or a drama, or what. Toss Wild Things, L.A. Story and Palmetto in a blender and you get Shattered Vows: A dead-serious opening sequence (complete with a murder off-screen) segues into a comic setup with shots of Morgan talking himself into marrying: this is intercut with a sequence of Morgan's bride-to-be making love to her girlfriend (Tyler) while also revealing her plans to fuck Morgan over. Mickey G. lends a sinister air to the proceedings, though his character is dispatched with far less drama than even Boba Fett's lame demise in Return of the Jedi. Also, the music in the finale makes for a syrupy finish; and the script ties up some ends a little too neatly while leaving others dangling in the wind.
