New York street peddling isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, which explains why Jake Bateman (Michael O”Keefe, Caddyshack) and Barney Benar (Paul Rodriguez, Born in East L.A.) head for the warmer climes of Palm Beach in search of quick cash, girls, and fun. Cupid’s arrow strikes when Jake meets the girl of his dreams, the beautiful Olivia (Lucinda Jenney, Rain Man). Olivia is a socialite with problems of her own. If within 30 days she’s unable to find a suitable husband – someone cultured and well bred – she will lose her inheritance along with the orphanage she operates to a real estate developer, the snide Strobe (Stephen Davies, The Razor’s Edge) who just happens to be her ex-boyfriend. With pressure from both the still infatuated Strobe as well as her uncle, Olivia’s options are running out. Could a crash course in manners and etiquette turn Jake into suitable husband material? Joining a rag-tag bunch of potential sophisticates at a charm school run by one Henrietta Phelps (Carole Shelley, The Odd Couple) might just be, well, the charm. And so begins the madcap merriment in the farcical The Whoopee Boys.
