Harris (Jack Black) doesn't have a lot of money, but it's his one ambition in life. He comes in second and in the process reconciles with his father and wins the girl (Rashida Jones). Stu (Steve Martin) is a successful businessman who retires to pursue his dream while never losing sight of the importance of his family. He and Harris become good friends during the year.
