My Fake Fiancé is a 2009 TV film starring Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence. It premiered on the ABC Family channel on April 19, 2009.

Plot synopsis

Jennifer Verti, a young woman with no interest in love, has just bought her first house and spent all her savings on the down payment. Shortly thereafter, all of her belongings are stolen. Vince is a ladies' man and a gambler, who is down on his luck and owes a large debt to a man named "The Monkey" (real name is Eugene). As fate would have it, they are seated next to each other when they attend a wedding. They both are in awe at how much cash and gifts a bride and groom get, and begin thinking about how easy it would be to get their lives back on track with that kind of income. A week later they meet for lunch and stage a fake romance and engagement. In the beginning, it's just a simple lie they tell their family and friends. However, as time goes on, and Vince begins to grow on both Jennifer and her family, the lie becomes increasingly hard to sustain. Both Jennifer and Vince are put to the test a few times throughout the film.
