Malcolm King is a boorish ego maniacal billionaire who owns a huge, equally tasteless marketing firm in Chicago.

His lovable secretary Miss Gladys tries to keep him in line, while his uber-ditz of an administrative assistant, Peaches, keeps him satisfied.

Kellita Smith is Malcolm's gold-digging wife, who is sleeping with her hunky, though stuttering, pool boy while seeking a hefty divorce settlement.

Resentments toward King abound, and soon everyone gets the same idea: kidnap Malcolm, take him for all he's worth, and teach him a valuable lesson.

Even the big man himself decides to orchestrate his own kidnapping, in order to throw a wrench in the plans of his wife's lawyer.
