SYNOPSIS

In the town of Titwillow, “Six Pack” Annie Bodine and Mary Lou Carter drink beer as they drive to the State Line Diner, where they work as waitresses. Bustis, a “good ol’ boy," races her to the diner in his pickup truck, but Annie takes a shortcut through a cow pasture and arrives first. Sheriff Marlin Waters follows Annie into the diner to complain, but when he slips on a banana peel, the fall knocks the wind out of him. Annie’s Aunt Tess Barnes, who owns the diner, receives a letter from Mr. Piker, the local banker, informing her she is late on her payment. Later, as Annie and boyfriend Bobby Joe swim nude in a creek, Sheriff Waters arrests them for indecency. After telephoning Tess to come get her wayward niece from jail, the sheriff pulls Annie aside and advises her to settle down with a good, solid man, namely himself. When Tess arrives, he offers to use his position to convince Mr. Piker to postpone her eviction. Later, at the diner, Mr. Bates, a traveling salesman with an eye for jewelry, tries to buy a brooch on Tess’s blouse. Later, Annie accompanies her aunt to the bank, where Mr. Piker gives Tess seven days to come up with $5,641.87. Returning to the diner, Annie asks Mary Lou who is the richest person she knows, and Mary Lou guesses it might be Annie’s own sister, Flora Bodine, who lives in Miami, Florida. That night, at a local a dance, Bobby Joe and Bustis fight over Annie. Mary Lou sides with Bustis in order to “double date” with his “well-endowed” friend, Long John.

Annie’s Aunt Tess Barnes, who owns the diner, receives a letter from Mr. Piker, the local banker, informing her she is late on her payment. Later, as Annie and boyfriend Bobby Joe swim nude in a creek, Sheriff Waters arrests them for indecency. After telephoning Tess to come get her wayward niece from jail, the sheriff pulls Annie aside and advises her to settle down with a good, solid man, namely himself. When Tess arrives, he offers to use his position to convince Mr. Piker to postpone her eviction. Later, at the diner, Mr. Bates, a traveling salesman with an eye for jewelry, tries to buy a brooch on Tess’s blouse. Later, Annie accompanies her aunt to the bank, where Mr. Piker gives Tess seven days to come up with $5,641.87. Returning to the diner, Annie asks Mary Lou who is the richest person she knows, and Mary Lou guesses it might be Annie’s own sister, Flora Bodine, who lives in Miami, Florida. That night, at a local a dance, Bobby Joe and Bustis fight over Annie. Mary Lou sides with Bustis in order to “double date” with his “well-endowed” friend, Long John. The next day, Sheriff Waters offers to loan Annie the money Tess needs if she agrees to marry him, but when she meets him later, the sheriff has little more than $100 in the bank and a life insurance policy. However, he claims he can raise the money issuing more parking tickets. The next day, Annie and Mary Lou leave a note for Aunt Tess and drive to Miami to see Flora Bodine. Hoping to get some “action,” the women pick up two handsome hitchhikers, but Annie orders them off her pickup truck when she sees the men kissing. At a Miami tavern, bartender Carmello asks his only customer, inebriated Texas rancher Jack Whittlestone, for a loan to invade Cuba. Annie and Mary Lou walk in, order a six pack from Carmello, and telephone Flora to say they will be at her apartment in thirty minutes. When they arrive, the small-town, naive women assume from Flora’s apartment overlooking the ocean that she has money, even though she is really only a small-time prostitute. Flora claims she is still looking for a sugar daddy to solve her own financial problems, but suggests that Annie, being younger, prettier, and shapelier, find her own rich man. She sends Annie to Frederick’s of Hollywood to buy a sexy dress and white boots. Mary Lou, acting as Annie’s “manager,” drives her to the home of Louis Danton, a wealthy Frenchman, but when he dresses in a Napoleon costume and waves his sword, she runs from the house. Flora suggests that Annie go to the International Hotel in downtown Miami, but first Annie takes Mary Lou to her new barmaid job at Carmello’s bar. Jack Whittlestone, still inebriated, gives Annie a necklace with a “lucky” blue stone. Annie goes to the International bar, orders a beer in a can, and asks the bartender to point out the richest man in the room. Sitting next to Annie, Mr. O’Meyer, a.k.a. “Oscar Meyer,” announces himself to be “as rich as Rockefeller.” O’Meyer cons the hotel desk clerk into reserving a suite for Miss Bodine, a country music star. Then he buys a ring at the gift shop, takes Annie to the suite, and convinces her she will live in places like that the rest of her life. After they make love, however, O’Meyer disappears, and Annie discovers from the front desk that he left a message, “Better luck next time—The City Slicker,” and also finds that O’Meyer has stolen her money and taken the ring back for a refund. When Annie complains to Flora, her sister suggests she return to Titwillow. Annie drives to Carrmello’s to pick up Mary Lou, but the bartender asks them to take Jack Whittlestone back to the International Hotel and make sure he arrives safely at his room. As Annie confesses her financial problems while trying to put the drunken Jack into bed, he offers to give her six thousand dollars. Unfortunately, as soon as Jack turns over the money, his wife, Edna Whittlestone, blows the door open with a shotgun, grabs the money from Annie’s fingers, and drags him from the room. Dejected, Annie tells Mary Lou they are going home. Later, at the State Line Diner, Mr. Bates notices the stone around Annie’s neck and studies it with a magnifying glass. As Sheriff Waters and Mr. Piker arrive to foreclose on the diner, Mr. Bates offers Annie $7,000 for the necklace. Mary Lou pours milk into the sheriff’s hat, and when he puts his hat on, it pours down his face.
