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. Written by Matthew Patay

I think it's great!
27 October 2004 | by (CSA) – See all my reviews

This was one of the favorite movies of me and my friends!

Yes, the humor is a bit ..... juvenile at times. But that's the magic of it. We always got a kick out of it. They use high society for their own gains. Which in itself is hilarious! Paul Rodriguez gets away with saying things that we all wish we could! Paul Rodriguez' greatest character! I am waiting for it to come out on DVD. As soon as it does we all are going out and getting a copy!
