young Steveís first day at his
new summer job with the County
Mosquito Control Commission, where heíll be fighting "New
Jerseyís State Bird" by spraying chemicals down sewers. To
show Steve the ropes, the boss assigns Larry, an 11-year
veteran of the job who threw away the rule book
long ago. The day is
still young when the guys go swimming, breaking the cardinal rule:
"Never leave your vehicle." Before long, their jeep has
been "borrowed" by the mysterious man-child, Eddie the K.
Larry enlists his air-head girlfriend,
Diane, and her pal Melissa, to help locate the missing jeep before
the boss finds out itís gone. Innocent Steve becomes a helpless
pawn in a comedy of errors where he must learn to adapt or be
trampled by the insanity of it all.
The day proves to be a major turning point
for Steve, as he learns to take life a little more lightly and
appreciate the hidden qualities in his new friends.
