The entire plot of the movie is told in a rap song during the opening credit:

[car horn sound] Now John's the drummer out in the street, But the man can't even keep a beat So he spins his wheels to make ends meet. You got it? [Girl's voice: "Huh?"] Stay with me now! John's got a pretty little fiancé. When her daddy's trying to pull a power play, And if Big Daddy gets his way, Our man John will be wearing seaman's shooooooes! See more
