Mickey and Dell, two long suffering halfwits come up with the idea of kidnapping at a bargain basement price. What could possibly go wrong? Well, maybe a victim who doesn’t want to be returned, another with a husband who doesn’t want her back, one who’s tougher than her kidnappers, and another who’s entirely the wrong person. Not to mention local thug Huey Evans who is looking to settle a score.
Ben just wants time with the scientist’s daughter who got him into this, but when he’s rooked into competing in a chronothon–an Amazing Race through time–getting the girl means he’ll need to make the finish line. When he finds out this competition is more than just a sprint through history, winning takes a back seat to surviving.
