Devastated by the death of their overprotective mother and unsure how to carry on without a loving parental figure to guide them, a pair of dim-witted brothers set out to find a suitable replacement in directors Michael Covert and Tracy Fraim's screwball crime comedy. Despite the fact that they've grown well into adulthood, coddled mama's boys Junior (Covert) and Scooter (Fraim) are incapable of caring for themselves. When their smothering mother moves on to meet her maker, the desperate duo decides to search the West Texas plains for a woman capable of catering to their peculiar needs. Soon setting their sights on kindly Piggly Wiggly employee Dede (Tara Chocol), Junior and Scooter kidnap their newfound parental substitute and quickly incur the wrath of her abusive Texas Ranger husband (played by Patrick Warburton). Now, with a new mother in tow and a vengeful Texas Ranger hot on their tracks, Junior and Scooter agree to help Dede sneak back to her home and rescue her real son so that all four can start their new life together.
