Summary
  • It's Pat: Pat Riley, a busybody of undeterminable sex, meets and falls in love with Chris, a sensitive, caring person also of undeterminable sex. Meanwhile, Pat's neighbor Kyle falls further and further into obsession with Pat, fascinated by Pat's indeterminate sexuality
  • Cabin boy: A spoiled rich kid's plans for a ritzy Hawaiian cruise backfire when he gets lost at sea with a gang of salty old sailors that teach him lessons in life
  • The wrong guy: Nelson Hibbert, a bungling executive furious over missing a "promised" promotion, sets out to confront his boss on the matter and finds him murdered. Panicking, tripping and screaming his way out of the office, Nelson is sure he'll be pinned with the deed, even though video proves who really committed the crime
  • Mr. Wrong: A single woman under pressure from her family to find a husband meets a man who, at first, seems to be Mr. Right, but when she realizes he's not, she can't get rid of him
  • Kazaam: Kazaam is a larger-than-life genie with a magic touch for nonstop fun and laughter! After 5,000 long years of captivity, Kazaam is set free to grant three wishes to a new master. From then on, he's catapulted to one wild adventure after another ... from becoming the latest rap sensation to untangling an outrageous mob scheme!
  • Gone fishin': Gus and Joe eagerly anticipate another quiet, relaxing fishing trip. Only things don't go quite as they planned! Instead, they innocently create an unstoppable series of outrageous mishaps, destroying everything in their wake!
  • The 6th man: When college basketball superstar Antoine Tyler dies unexpectedly, the dream of winning an NCAA Championship alongside his younger brother Kenny dies with him ... or so it seems. Suddenly, Antoine stands to make the greatest comeback of all time ... as a ghost who becomes the team's invisible "sixth man" the crowd can't see
  • Celtic pride: Buddies Jimmy and Mike are a pair of die-hard basketball fans who'll do anything to help their team win -- including kidnapping Lewis Scott, a stuck-up superstar who's about to lead his team to the NBA Championship. When Scott ends up being a tough competitor off the court, too, he turns the tables on his dim-witted captors
