Keywords: Comedy

A hapless man grows envious of his best friend's million-dollar invention and subsequent overnight success.

Strait-laced Tim Dingman and oddball Nick Vanderpark are best friends and co-workers of equal standing in the world; their balance is disrupted when the ever-entrepreneurial Nick happens upon a million-dollar idea for a dog poop-vaporizing spray that catapults him to overnight fame and fortune. Tim, a pessimist by nature who passed on an opportunity to invest in what he saw as another one of Nick's fruitless schemes, harbors an all-consuming envy for his old pal's get-rich-quick story that sees him employing a number of increasingly ludicrous schemes to get one over on him.
