Rating: 0/5

Dray is the heir to a fortune worth billions. His parents have decided he needs to settle down and pick a suitor. “What, like Cinderella!” he scoffs. They nod and plan a ball centering around their son as the guest of honor. They called up a former teacher to give a speech and the volunteer coordinator at the hospital. Dray didn’t make it past orientation. However, they needed someone to vouch for their son’s good qualities.

Dray has no interest in being in a serious relationship. He has an estimated total of about 75 women he has slept with. There are several women he rotates with on the weekends. Everyone knows the deal. However, he has gotten two women pregnant. His parents pay them off every month with child support if they promise not to talk.

At the ball, he spots Foxy Brown and falls in love with her at first sight. Brown, however, is grateful to have a chance to get out of the house. Her sisters order her around and make her do their chores. It was her fairy godfather who convinced her to go. After a long search, Dray arrives at Brown’s house. Her sisters claim no one names Foxy lives there. They have the wrong house and suggest he go to another state to find her. Brown overhears and runs down the steps. Her sisters shove Dray on the floor. Brown pushes them off and kisses Dray. Dray and Brown become the premiere couple of the city.
