Synopsis: Bud Granger is an eccentric Hollywood screenwriter who wants to get out of life in the fast lane so he buys a termite pile of an old lodge in the middle of an Arizona desert as it is near a fabled buried treasure. He thinks he will strike it rich, but unfortunately for Bud the lodge is full of nutty characters such as Cora Ames (an elderly lady who claims she was abducted by space aliens), Gert Witherspoon (a crusty, shot gun slinging hotel manager), Dimitri Jones (the world’s worst Russian spy), and The Whitneys (a honeymooning couple who mistake the lodge for a 5 star resort). More trouble arises when Bud’s mother unexpectedly arrives and there is a mix up involving the dead body of a notorious mobster putting into motion a roller coaster ride of laughs.
