It make Vinnie question his masculinity and have his first real “spiritual emergency” with great comic payoffs. Meanwhile John’s other friends Jack and Jill have been a couple for 5 years now.

      Jack is the definitive corporate guy working publicity for an unnamed sports firm in Manhattan. He has the image of a straight business man, but is an under cover rocker in his private life. Jack is the life of the party and loves to go out dancing with Jill. He even sings in Greek songs that his Grandma taught him to romance woman with.

      Jill is angry that Jack won’t set a date for their wedding after being engaged for two years. It turns into a blow out argument where Jill leaves Jack slamming the door.

      John, Vinnie, Jessica, Zsa Zsa, and even Sally help throw a party to get Jack and Jill back together. Jack sings Jill a Greek love song and them proposes to Jill that they marry ASAP. John surprises them that they all planned a wedding at Pop’s house while Jack and Jill had been broken up.

      Jill insists that it be a costume wedding like Mardi Gras where she first met Jack. All the relationships come full circle at the wedding. Even Pops may has a new love interest in his art critic nemesis Madame Bovary.
