American divorcée Larita (Biel) is a race-car driver. After impulsively tying the knot in Monte Carlo with young Englishman John Whittaker (Barnes), she travels to England to meet her groom's privileged and batty family. Naturally, they hate her.
John's mother, Mrs. Whittaker (Scott Thomas), and his sisters Hilda and Marion do their best to sabotage the newlyweds and banish their brother's shocking new wife. Only in the family's patriarch, Mr. Whittaker (Firth), does the young bride find acceptance, and the two develop a bond founded on their mutual appreciation for motorbikes and flouting social etiquette.
