Thornton Melon's son is a college misfit, so Thornton's lending some fatherly support... by enrolling as a fellow freshman! Who cares if the owner of the "Tall and Fat" clothing empire never finished high school? Thornton's pockets are deep enough to buy a ticket to class... and hire NASA to do his homework! But when he ticks off his professor - and then steals his girlfriend- Thornton takes things just a little too far. Now, he'll have to hit the books - instead of his bank account - or go back to being the world's wealthiest dropout!
