Clifford Peache is the new kid in Lake View High School. Faced with all the stress that role entails he makes his situation worse by insulting Moody, the leader of a group of toughs who extort lunch money from kids. These punks pretend to be bodyguards for the kids to protect them from Linderman who, it is rumored, killed his brother in cold blood. Clifford befriends the sullen Linderman and hires him as his bodyguard. When Moody ups the ante, Linderman must decide whether fighting for what he believes in, with his haunted past and image, is justified. Written by

Adam Baldwin - who plays the reluctant hero, Ricky Linderman - has a brief cameo in another movie, "Drillbit Taylor", (2008), which is a comedic version, of the whole bodyguard genre. He is seen wearing the exact same outfit from the original classic movie, and scolds the boys who are interviewing him, with a completely ironic line, "Kids hiring a bodyguard, to take care of a bully ??? Stupidest thing I ever heard !!!" See more
During the "turning the tables" scene, as Clifford is telling Moody his services will no longer be needed, Carson is shown standing behind Ricky. In the next cut, he is shown moving from behind the crowd to deliver his line to Moody, then moving behind Ricky. See more
