When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, bride and groom Kristin and Scott are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But getting Lumpy’s body back to Minneapolis is just the start of their adventure, as the well-intended sacrifice surprises at every turn. And when the newlyweds’ path leads them to a fifteen year-old girl in a small, northern Minnesota town – all bets are off on who Lumpy really was.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 21st, 2014
