The Third Wheel is a 2002 American film directed by Jordan Brady, starring Luke Wilson, Denise Richards, Jay Lacopo and Ben Affleck.

Synopsis

After more than a year fantasizing about asking out his co-worker, Stanley (Luke Wilson) finally asks Diana Evans (Denise Richards) out on a date. As the two venture out on their first date, Stanley hits a homeless man Phil (Jay Lacopo) with his car, and the events that follow are far from the night of romance that Stanley had planned. Meanwhile, Stan's co-workers, including his friend, Michael (Ben Affleck), are monitoring the date between Stan and Diana, and they are betting on how far Stan will get with the beautiful Diana.

One morning, he is playing golf with the owner of one of the biggest newspaper publishers of New York. He tells Ryan of a huge merger between his company, Simpson Inc., and a large drug corporation.

However, the next day, Simpson reveals that there is not going to be a merger. Ryan loses most of his own, and much of his clients' money in light of the news. He storms over to Simpson's office, and Simpson tells Ryan that he personally screwed him over because Ryan was sleeping with his wife. Ryan, now near bankrupt, sells his possessions and moves in with his girlfriend, Cindy. Ryan tries to get another job at another brokerage, but his license is revoked.
