This knee slapping comedy is set in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia. Two English men, Froggy and Charlie, arrive as guests. After pleadings from his sick wife, the shy Charlie agreed to accompany Froggy on the trip. When people at the lodge try to talk to Charlie, he cannot find words due to his terrible shyness. Froggy then claims that Charlie cannot talk because he is from an exotic country and does not understand English.
Due to his supposed lack of ability to understand English, Charlie soon discovers scandals amongst some of the residents of the lodge and in the end must help the residents come up with a plan to fight local Evil Empire member Owen Musser in order to save the lodge and restore order.
