Stuck with a feeble sports department, college coach Sam Archer (John Amos) faces the ax unless he can reverse the school’s athletic fortunes. An African vacation with his assistant (Tim Conway) answers Archer’s prayers when he spots the athletically gifted Nanu (Jan-Michael Vincent). Sam counts on Nanu’s remarkable abilities to put the team back on the winning track. This upbeat farce boasts an impressive cast of comedians.
