Four of Hollywood's hottest young stars - Matthew Perry, Neve Campbell, Dylan Mcdermott, Oliver Platt - team up in the offbeat romantic comedy "THREE TO TANGO." Oscar Novak (Matthew Perry) is an idealistic, young architect on the rise. Boyishly handsome and funny, Oscar and his business partner, Peter Steinberg (Oliver Platt), have just landed a career-making opportunity-Chicago tycoon Charles Newman (Dylan McDermott) has chosen them to compete for the design of a multi-million dollar cultural center. To maximise publicity, Newman has pitched Oscar and Peter against their archrivals and former colleagues, the hugely successful (and equally ruthless) Decker and Strauss.

Impressed with Oscar's dedication to winning the job, Charles assigns him the additional task of spying on his mistress, Amy (Neve Campbell), a woman who Charles guards as jealously as he guards his investments. Oscar's attempts at surveillance fail, but he does develop a crush on Amy and thinks he's found the woman of his dreams. Amy is a beautiful and headstrong artist, who begins to return his growing affection.

Unfortunately Oscar discovers Charles gave him this task because he thinks he is gay and Oscar has his life turned upside down when he finds Amy believes this, along with Oscar's friends, his family, even strangers on the street. The very heterosexual Oscar Novak becomes the most famous gay man in Chicago.

When he is honored as Chicago's Gay Professional of the Year, Oscar has to make a decision-will he continue the lie and hold on to the job of a lifetime and a warm but frustrating friendship with the girl he loves, or is it time to face the consequences of coming out of the closet and telling the whole world that he is secretly... straight?
