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 is my NO.1 comedy film of all time!
20 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I first saw this back in the day and I was sore for a week from laughing so damn hard! I bought a used copy from a local video store a few years ago and finally wore it out showing it to all my friends so I finally spent a small fortune and bought a brand new VHS copy online. This movie is base line juvenile slapstick humor at it's very best. Crude at times but I'm a sick humor type of person so this just works for me! I highly recommend this to anyone with an open sense of humor, you will love it! The studio needs to release this on DVD, I can't believe some of the junk I find on DVD and this excellent comedy is just stuffed away in some vault somewhere! Come on and get with it and release this on DVD for the masses to enjoy!
