Fools Rush In is a romantic comedy starring Matthew Perry and Salma Hayek. Matthew Perry plays Alex, a hard working man involved in the construction industry. One day, he is sent to Las Vegas to oversee a new job for his company. While there he meets the beautiful Isabel, played by Salma Hayek. The two have instant chemistry, and they end up having a one-night stand.

Three months go by, and Isabel contacts Alex again. She lets him know that she is pregnant with his child. Alex is scared at first, but then he decides he needs to try and do the right thing, so he proposes to Isabel. She accepts and the two are married. However, they find that marriage is even harder than it looks.

Alex and Isabel could not be more different. She is a fiery Mexican, while he is taciturn WASP from the east coast. Alex causes drama for the young couple by failing to let Isabel know that he plans to move back to New York after his construction job in Las Vegas is done. She is stunned by the news and does not want to leave her friends and family. Alex also never tells his parents about their marriage. Isabel is shocked and hurt by his behavior. She then tells him that she has had a miscarriage and she heads back to her family in Mexico. Alex begins to realize that he has made a mistake and really does love Isabel. He decides to head to Mexico himself to try and win her back. Of course problems arise as Alex and Isabel’s respective families do not know what to make of the young couple or each other. Isabel’s father, in particular, is extremely goofy and does not want his daughter to become attached to Alex, who he feels is a snob. Of course, in the end, true love wins.
