PlotEdit

The film opens with a title card that jokingly claims that Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Steve McQueen, Al Pacino, Burt Reynolds, Ryan O'Neal, Robert De Niro, Clint Eastwood, and Charles Bronson are the stars of the film. This is followed by a cartoon professor delivering the line "ooh all these big stars, not one of them is in the picture."

Ben (Gary Imhoff), Larry (Jeffrey Byron), Alan (Dennis Quaid) and Steve (Lou Richards) are college seniors who are terrified at the prospect of working for a living. They create a plan to support themselves as graduate research students by getting a foundation grant to study sexuality in college-age women.
