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.

This movie contains dirty humor....I laughed my butt off!!
18 October 2000 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

One of, if not the, funniest movies I've ever seen. The downside is the humor is rude, uncooth, foul-mouthed, nasty, sexual innuendos, stupid and just plain idiotic!! Guaranteed to make anybody laugh if they can stomach it. 8 pts.
