On the way he becomes involved with Eva (Penelope Cruz), a beautiful UN doctor who is trying to find the source of a mysterious disease sweeping the country. Teaming up to take on the henchmen of an evil local dictator, Dirk, Al and Eva begin to wonder if their separate quests might be linked after all.

Ben (McConaughey) works for an advertising company and is trying to win a place on a very big account with a diamond firm. Egged on by his two female colleagues who have heard about the magazine article, Ben tells his boss that he is the man for the job as he can make any woman fall for him within two weeks.
