Twenty some-odd years after livening the beach scene, Annette and Frankie return, helping the viewers along with the already self-explanatory title.
Frankie is an obsessed car dealer who is married to Annette, the perennial optimist. They intend to travel to Hawaii with their son, to see if Frankie can relax. On the way, they stop to see their slightly more liberated daughter in California. When they meet up with members of the old gang, we see how Frankie and Annette re-evaluate their relationship.
