The movie follows the Robbersons, a suburban family who become the unwitting hosts to a team of police officers who are investigating a nearby house where a group of robbers are planning a heist. The lead detective on the case, Jake Stone (Jack Palance), convinces the family to let his team set up surveillance in their home in order to keep an eye on the robbers.
The Robbersons are initially hesitant to allow the police into their home but ultimately agree after Stone convinces them that they will be helping to catch a group of dangerous criminals. However, as the days pass and the police team begins to disrupt the family's everyday routine, the Robbersons start to feel resentful of the intrusion and the situation becomes increasingly chaotic.

The movie is filled with comedic moments as the police team struggles to maintain their cover and the Robbersons attempt to carry on with their daily lives amidst the chaos. There are hijinks involving a pet rabbit, yoga classes, and a neighborhood watch meeting that goes hilariously awry.
The film also features a number of well-known character actors in supporting roles, including David Barry Gray as the Robbersons' teenage son, and Robert Davi as one of the robbers being pursued by the police team.
