Aspiring filmmaker and college freshman Charlie spends most of his free time mooning over the impossibility of obtaining his dream girl. To make matters worse, Charlie's professor doesn't seem to think him a very likely candidate to be the world's next great director. His roommate Ron is quite good with the ladies and tries vainly to teach poor Charlie his best tricks. Charlie's life experiences a great turn-around when he volunteers for Professor Randy's psychology experiment. Most of this goofy comedy centers on the results.
