Several Los Angeles college students flock to Palm Springs, California for a long, fun-filled spring-break weekend. Jim finds romance with Bunny, the daughter of a harried, stressed-out Palm Springs Police Chief. Jim's bumbling roommate Biff tries to get tomboyish Amanda's attention with a so-called love gadget. Gayle Lewis, a high-school senior posing as a wealthy college girl, is pursued by wealthy, spoiled college preppie Eric Dean but has eyes for a Texas cowboy called Stretch. Jim and Biff's basketball coach, Campbell, tries to romance Naomi, the owner of the motel where they're all staying, but faces interference from Naomi's troublemaking brat son "Boom-Boom."
