Comedy. Sonny Koufax is a laidback young man who, following an insurance payout after an accident, only works one day a week as a tollbooth attendant. It seems it is about time Sonny faced up to some responsibilities, according to his girlfriend Vanessa. When Sonny's roommate, Kevin, is confronted by a little boy claiming to be his son, Kevin leaves the child with Sonny over the Columbus Day holidays. When Sonny and the little boy, Julian, begin to get on well, Sonny pretends to be Kevin and actually gains custody of the child - for a while.
