In this comedy, Rodney Dangerfield plays Thornton Melon who is a fun loving and affluent father of a student in college. Thornton's son, Jason, is not doing very well in his studies so Thornton decides to return to school to support his son. While doing so, obnoxious Thornton turns the school upside down by throwing lavish parties and making lots of much younger friends.

Jason Melon wants to be on the diving team but lacks confidence and is often picked on by the other swimmers. Thornton, who in his college years had perfected an amazing dive, decides to help his son with his social and diving problems.
