The plot of this story is silly, setting the scene for even greater silliness as the movie rolls along. The story tells of an executive who accepts the challenge to attend his bossäó»s monthly dinner in which whoever brings the biggest buffoon wins. This is the story of the winner. The unlikely relationship that develops between the executive and the buffoon drive the plot in the movie.

Comedy is based on slapstick style served with a heaping helping of the outrageous and silly. Most of the funny lines and actions are delivered by the buffoon. There is no real violence in the film, but there are a few slightly off color jokes, such as looking down a ladyäó»s top, but it is not technically sexual content, because the lady happens to be a wooden dummy. It is suggested for PG-13 and could go as low as PG, but it is not likely that younger children will understand the content as well as older ones.
