A known play-boy with a weakness for pretty young girls, Tony Manetta is an inept business man whose attempts to run and profit from his Miami hotel are repeatedly unsuccessful. Even less responsible in business is Tony's current flame Shirl, the costume designer for the hotel's entertainment the two continually blow through all the hotels money, leaving Toney facing foreclosure and bankruptcy. The only two responsible people in Tony's life are his 12-year-old son Ally and his brother Mario. Out of Desperation, Tony approaches Mario about giving him money and helping to bailout the hotel....again. Mario agrees but lists two conditions either relinquish all parental rights to Ally to him or marry and settle down with a nice quiet girl of his choosing. Not wanting to give up Ally, Tony chooses marriage. At first, he just pretends to play along until after he had the money, but then he meets Eleanor Park, the girl Mario has picked for him, and he begins to wonder if settling down would be all that bad.
