Tagline: You wouldn't want to meet these pinheads in an alley.

Plot: Roy Munson was once an expert bowler. Now he's a balding, polyester-clad loser, who wears a hook where his bowling hand used to be. The cash-free Roy finds a potential goldmine in Ishmael, an oafish Amish man who's a bowling prodigy. Munson trains the ingenuous, sheltered Ishmael, and enters him in a million-dollar bowling tournament in Reno. But the bumbling pair need money to get there, so with the aid of a sexy babe who joins them, they hustle unsuspecting bowlers as they travel across the country.

During their VERY wacky trek, Ishmael is exposed to some rather un-Amish things -- like a strip club. But when the climactic tournament begins, Roy considers coming out of retirement (hook and all), when he discovers that one of the competitors is Big Ern McCracken, a cheesy, sleazy ex-champ -- who caused Roy to lose his hand.
