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.

Rude, crude, and absolutely hilarious
8 August 2000 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie is certainly not for everyone. Easily offended? Nope, not you. Only appreciate high-brow humor? No, not you either. However, if you enjoy crude humor, this is perhaps the funniest movie you will ever see. Now, as long as I have a face...
