Jake (Michael O'Keefe) and Barney (Paul Rodriguez) are a pair of New York City street peddlers who leave the Big Apple for the warmer climes of Palm Beach in this comedy romance. What they find is a good-hearted socialite named Olivia (Lucinda Jenney), who needs to land a suitable husband within a month or she will lose her inheritance as well as the orphanage she operates. Olivia hatches a plan to solve her problems, but it involves passing off the obnoxious Jake as a cultured and well-bred man of manners.
