Pen (Stockard Channing) and Edie (Jennifer Tilly) are two women that have come to Las Vegas to secure divorces from their respective husbands. Edie is cheerful about her divorce since she's going to travel overseas to quickly remarry a man that she's been dating, while Pen is upset because her divorce was a result of her husband's philandering. Both women decide to drink at a local bar where they become fast friends, bonding over their unsuccessful marriages, as Pen's husband left her shortly after their marriage two years ago and Edie's husband Victor (Stuart Wilson) spent the last nine years neglecting her. They're unaware that they have a deeper bond between the two of them, as Edie's fiance is actually Victor, Pen's newly divorced husband.
At the bar they meet up with Harry (Scott Glenn), a man whose wife recently left him for another man. Much to her chagrin, Harry begins showing an immediate romantic interest in Pen, who is reluctant to return his attentions. She's urged on by Edie, as she feels that Pen would have more fun in life if she were less uptight and more spontaneous. Pen begins to slowly return Harry's feelings based on Edie's advice, only for things to turn sour when she realizes that Edie was Victor's mistress. As a result, Pen breaks things off with Harry, not believing that the relationship would ever work out. Initially intending to angrily confront her over this revelation, Pen is surprised to discover that Edie was completely unaware that Victor was married. Edie goes on to talk about her hopes for the impending marriage as she has been hurt and used repeatedly in the past, making her optimistic that her marriage to Victor will break this chain of unhealthy relationships. This causes Pen to realize that Edie is not completely to blame for her divorce and that she is just as much a victim of Victor's actions as Pen was. Knowing that an angry confrontation is now meaningless and would only negatively hurt Edie, Pen opts to keep silent and quietly leave the following day. However Edie discovers the truth when both women travel to the airport and come across Victor, who immediately recognizes both women. The film ends with Pen returning to Harry to pursue a romance while Edie chooses to travel to Acapulco with Victor, but the two are shown arguing, leaving it up to the viewer to decide if the pair ultimately married or not.
