High-school freshmen Emmit (David Dorfman), Ryan (Troy Gentile), and Wade (Nate Hartley) are picked on by a bully, Filkins (Alex Frost). To solve their problem, they hire a bodyguard, AWOL homeless soldier Drillbit Taylor (Owen Wilson), who–unknown to Emmit, Ryan, and Wade–is a scam artist planning to steal from the kids' parents. But, as Drillbit gets to know them, he begins to like the boys. He also meets English teacher Lisa (Leslie Mann) who he really likes.

In this satire on "300," our hero Leonidas (Sean Maguire), clad in a cape and leather panties, and his brave band of 13 skip along singing songs and having a real "gay" march on the dastardly Persian King Xerxes (Ken Davitian). But it won't be an easy task to save his beloved Sparta from destruction as they must deal with a myriad of celebrity look-alikes such as Britney Spears, Nicole Parker, Tom Cruise, Simon Cowell, etc. Meanwhile, Leonidas' Queen, Margot (Carmen Electra), stays behind to entertain the elders with her scant clothing and perform other acts between massages. Get the picture?
