A fight over the TV remote:

On the night before their anniversary weekend, Mike and Amanda have very different ideas about how to spend the night: Keeping up with the Kardashians and chill, or Marriage of Figaro and culture. But is this argument over what to watch on TV more than just a petty squabble? How different can you be from the love of your life? Can you learn to love what you thought you hate?
Combining pop, electronic, and classical music, this 3-in-1 rom-com switches between two iconic marriages: Internet breaker Kim Kardashian is looking forward to her fairytale marriage to her trophy husband, NBA star Kris Humphries. A fresh New York life may sound like fun, but does her heart lie in the (Kanye) West?
