It's summer vacation and like all good frat house boys, Bruce Tucker and Joe Gillespie are off to Palm Springs to sample the local delicacies and view the native wildlife. Their only problem comes in the form of travelling partner and nerd-extraordinaire Wendell Tvedt. In return for teaching his astronomy major son 'the ways of the world', Wendell's father has agreed to let the boys use his summer apartment. The fun starts when two members of a rival fraternity, Charles Lawlor III and J. C. Springer turn up at the same resort and bet they can win the hand of any girl quicker than Bruce and Joe. The beautiful Ashley Taylor quickly becomes the unwitting victim of a $1000 bet. The game is on but which one of the four will win her heart? Or will Wendell and Ashley become star crossed lovers?
