Best friends Summer and Marci are in a quandry when they tell obnoixious Jennifer that they have dates for the Spring fling. Unfortunately for them, this is not exactly true. The only way to recover from the ultimate humiliation of getting caught in this ile is to produce actual dates for the dance. Luckily for them, the girls' part-time boss, crazy Doris Trowbridge, finds a magic ring. With it, she turns two pet rats into the cutest guys they have ever seen. But now everyone, including Jennifer, is interested in them. And rats have a lot more in common with boys than anyone would think...
