In his first year producing the Bumpass County H.S. talent show, teacher Matt Stevens (Ben Stiller) senses disaster. The townies of his Iowa town are abuzz over the rumors and innuendo. The Wednesday morning bible-study is threatening to boycott on account of the Madonna skit. There is also a rumored sabotage of the New Kids lip-sync performance and Stevens thinks he is being stalked by several cafeteria workers. Stevens knows that his job and possibly life depend on the success of this "friendly little show."
