Rick Robinson (Gourley) is a lowly intern at a Miami law firm who dreams of becoming a partner one day. Desperate to score points with his boss, McAllister (Hauer), he commits to a favor he can't afford. Just five days before the bar exam, Rick finds himself in charge of moving McAllister's dearest possession across the country: his seductive, yet untouchable niece Michelle (Kunis) and her pet pig, Dorothy. Along the way, the mismatched pair encounters numerous obstacles and unforgettable characters, like free-spirited hithhiker Orlick Prescott Hope (Heder). Amidst the breakdowns and strife, Rick just might manage to find love, life and himself in this trans-American road trip from hell.
