Wendell Baker has a few things going for him: his genial nature and optimism and the love of Doreen. His troubles? He dances around telling her that he loves her, and his idea of work is illegal.

When he's imprisoned, Doreen puts him behind her when she realizes that even prison is just a good excuse for him to play football with the guys.

When he is paroled, it's to a job in the "hotel industry" at a board and care home for seniors, where the head nurse is running a scam.

Three of the residents help Wendell expose the scam and win back Doreen?

Rating: PG-13 for some crude and sexual humor and language
