Alex, 30, a loveable, unassuming dog trainer is dating the ideal woman: Katherine, 28, a stunning, smart and a talented personal shopper from a wealthy family. Katherine adores Alex's quirky sense of humor, honesty and capacity to listen. Amazed at his luck, Alex is awed by Katherine's beauty and sees her as flawless. He confers with best friend and confidante, Lily, and seeks affirmation that Katherine is the one.
Having decided to pop the question, Alex is stunned when Katherine produces a detailed list of "improvements" that she feels will transform Alex and allow them to be the ideal couple. Katherine believes she can mold him into the kind of man her tough, opinionated father will approve of. From "teeth whitening" to "converting to Judaism," Alex instinctively rejects the suggestion that he needs to change. But with some coaxing from friends and the prospect of losing Katherine to a handsome new competitor, Alex decides to "do the list." He is guided by his coterie of friends that includes Dave, his crass but loyal childhood buddy, Lily, husband Michael and her 6 year old son, Nicky, with whom Alex feels a special bond.
As Alex takes this journey, he begins to reconsider and question his beliefs and values. In the end, he realizes true love should transcend outward appearances.
