This story is set in 1976, when the American Basketball Association is about to merge with the National Basketball Association. Jackie Moon (Will Farrell) uses the profits from his soul ballad "Love Me Sexy" to purchase the Flint Michigan Tropics–the worst team in basketball. Jackie is already a player and coach on the team, but, now, as the owner as well, his goal is to qualify as one of the teams that will merge into the NBA. To that end, Jackie obtains former Boston Celtics point-guard, mean-tempered Monix (Woody Harrelson) to lead the team on a winning streak–and the craziness begins.

But, they can't stand each other and agree to an annulment. Then, Jack puts Joy's quarter into a slot machine and hits the jackpot of $3,000,000. Each of them want the winnings, and they go to court for a settlement. Judge Whopper (Dennis Miller) sentences them to "six months of hard marriage" and orders them to visit marriage counselor Dr. Twitchel (Queen Latifah). And now the fun begins as Jack and Joy both scheme to drive the other out of the marriage.
