Timothy Dunphy lives in a working-class neighborhood in Rhode Island, with his gruff father (Baldwin) and a three-legged dog. He spends most of his time goofing off and getting in trouble, until an accident with a police car forces him to transfer to an upper-class boarding school. There Tim must learn the ways of his new world, while exploring life and romance. A touching comedy, written and produced by the Farrelly brothers, creators of DUMB AND DUMBER and THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY. Includes bonus footage and an alternate ending.
