Trained from his tender years to become a bowling prodigy, Roy Munson (Woody Harrelson) starts beating the best, defeating established pro Ernie McCracken in his first tournament. McCracken (Bill Murray) then convinces Munson to help him hustle some bowlers and uses him for a bowling scam and splits, leaving him behind with the sore losers cutting off Roy's bowling hand.

Years later, now a bowling-supplies salesman with a rubber hand, Roy chances upon an Amish man named Ishmael (Randy Quaid) bowling a mean frame, on one of his sales calls. He finally convinces a very reluctant Ishmael to let Roy manage him as a pro, and decides to take him to a winner-takes-all $1,000,000 tournament in Reno where none other than Ernie McCracken will be bowling for the prize...
