Johnny Stewart (Damon Wayans) is small time scam artist who seems to stay one step ahead of the cops and two months behind on his rent. When he lays eyes on beautiful credit card executive Amber Evans (Stacey Dash), he lies his way into a job in the company mailroom to get closer to her. Unfortunately, the mail room pays less than he is accustomed to, and when he gets involved in a credit card scam with the company's head of security, he gets in more trouble than he bargains for. This action/comedy/romance was also written by Wayans.
Con man Johnny Stewart decides to go straight after being saved from a jail term by Lieutenant Ray Walsh, his dead father's former partner. Despite his lack of enthusiasm for finding a "real" job, he applies for a position at the Dynasty Club Credit Card Company when he spies a beautiful woman on the street and discovers that she works there. He gets hired and pursues her, but he also gets more than he bargained for when he and his brother Seymour become involved in the investigation into an elaborate credit-card racket operating at the company.
