Storyline

Two dim-witted street peddlers, Jack and Barney, arrive in Palm Beach, Florida, looking for a better, wealthier lifestyle. In Palm Beach, Jack falls for Olivia, a young heiress running an orphaned children's shelter being threatened with foreclosure. Jack, at Barney's insistence, enrolls them both at a finishing school so they can learn the etiquette of the upper class in order to fit in with the hope that Olivia's uncle will approve of Jack wanting to marry her and help her obtain an inheritance to save the orphanage.

Never beaten in 20 years
20 October 2006 | by (Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay, I see that from the comments that this film was made for the US market and as we both seem to be diverse in opinion when it comes to humour. This gem I first watched as a rental, as I could find nothing more in the shop that interested me. Well for a change it paid off, as I to this day still talk about the funniest film I have ever watched. Yes it's base humour but it's base humour at it finest. I spilt my beer in the scene with the posh woman holding the dog and he asks the dog "is that nasty lady squeezing your genitals"? I have recently returned from Cannes where all the woman carry their dogs and that scene kept flashing back to me. This film is a peach and a rarity, dumber and dumber came nowhere near it in laughs per minute.
