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.

Great Low Grade Humor in Abundance
24 April 2006 | by spams-3See all my reviews

Excellent low grade humor in abundance. Hilarious movie with many memorable quotes... I still remember a few after seeing this over 12 years ago...

Barnie Caught shaving with a car mirror in the hotel pool Manager:"Are you people guests here?" Barnie:"POTENTIAL Guests? YES!" HAHAHA

"Rock Me Amadeus!" not even gonna explain that one... HAHAH!!!

"Is that mean old lady squeezing your genitals?"

"I wanted to thank you for only giving me the clap. These days it's refreshing to meet a girl with curable diseases."

"No! We no see Fluffy! What your dog look like? Your dog have big, juicy hind leg?"

Paul Rodriguez Rocks. That is all.
