Finn McCallister has serious doubts about his career. The receptionist in his coastal California real estate office wears her wetsuit to work, and his eccentric boss lectures in Pidgin: Braddah Finn, tell dem kook clients to pound sand! As the last of his friends to find a customer for his surname, hungover from one singles-bar karaoke of "Heat of the Moment" too many, Finn senses his personal life, too, is circling the drain.

In an attempt to outrun his insecurities, Finn trains for a marathon and literally collides with doe-eyed veterinarian Kim, who awakens primal feelings dormant since Phoebe Cates graced the halls of Ridgemont High. As Finn gains momentum from this new relationship, he attempts to rehabilitate his toxic best friend, Carmichael, whose marriage has flatlined. Still playing point guard from their high school basketball glory days, Carmichael plans a guys' weekend in the one city diametrically opposed to rehabilitation--Las Vegas.

An epic desert battle of Finn's morals versus Carmichael's impulses results. In combat, Finn slips back into a Members Only jacket, reunites with a (now clothing-optional) prom date, clubs with a Saved by the Bell alum, and stages the ultimate 80s-tribute concert. In the heat of the moment, in a last-stand effort to save a friend, Finn risks destroying his own future.
