A high-school gym teacher, Freddy Shop, wanted to be a teacher simply because he thought it was an easy job. This summer, he has plans to go to Hawaii with his girlfriend, Kim. Just before he heads off for summer vacation, the school's Vice Principal, Phil Gills, assigns him the contemptible job of teaching the summer remedial English class. He's forced to cancel his summer plans and work over the summer. To make matters worse, unless the students pass the English skills test at the end of the break, Mr. Shop will not only lose his tenure, but he'll lose his job as well.
