Henry Rose (Adam Sandler) is a typical playboy. What he is best at is using different identities to make beautiful women fall in love with him, and quickly get out of the relationship afterwards. As a veterinarian at the Hawaiian Aquarium, Henry has endless romantic feelings to infect this casual beauty. This time he fell in love with Lucy (Drew Barrymore) who was eating alone in a restaurant.
They chatted, built little houses out of bagels, and laughed. Henry was reluctant to part with the girl, and made an appointment to have dinner together again tomorrow morning. However, the next morning, when Henry warmly greeted Lucy, Lucy was as indifferent as a stranger. It turned out that the girl suffered from a strange short-term memory loss due to the car accident, and her memory always stayed on the day before the car accident.
Saint Henry encountered his own problems. He fell in love, but fell in love with a girl who kept losing his love…
