This basketball comedy is about two fanatic Boston Celtics fans, Mike O'Hara (Daniel Stern) and Jimmy Flaherty (Dan Aykroyd), who get drunk and kidnap Utah Jazz star Lewis Scott (Damon Wayans) before Game Seven of the NBA Finals. Of course, the plot backfires, and–unfortunately for the movie–silliness reigns.

In this take-off on "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," Snow–oops–Sydney White was brought up by her plumber father (John Schneider) and his construction workers after her mother died. Thus, tomboy Sydney was more interested in tools and comic books than social graces when she headed off to the college that her mother had attended, and joined her mother's sorority. She immediately becomes popular at school, resulting in the nasty sorority president, Rachel Witchburn (Sara Paxton), going to great lengths to get Sydney out of the sorority because of Rachel's loss of "most popular" student–and the threat of losing her boyfriend, Tyler (Matt Long), to Sydney. But Sydney doesn't care for the sorority girls, so she moves out and finds a home with seven dorky outcasts (whose personalities are suspiciously similar to the seven Dwarfs). The team plots to take on the evil Rachel and her elitist cohorts and make the school better for all.

Fifteen-year-old Deena (Hilary Swank) strikes out with violent outbursts against her parents, and her acts contribute to the problems of an already dysfunctional family. Her mother Cynthia (Joanna Kerns) and ten-year-old brother Adam (Adam Hendershott) already use alcohol to solve their problems. Deena's father, Todd (Dan Lauria), solves everything by engrossing himself in work. Matters come to a head when Deena threatens her parents with a knife. Now, Aunt Judith (Kathleen Wilhoite) steps in and takes over custody of Deena who now tries to deal with her problems, which, of course, include those of her family members as well.
