After a rich old man dies in a suspicious car accident in Acapulco, his widow wants his insurance company to pony up five million dollars. A hotshot investigator Decker (Charles Grodin) and a charming model (Farrah Fawcett) come in to check it out.

A very talkative but attractive young woman answers the ad, and convinces him to take her along. The movie consists of the comedic interactions on their trip that gradually transform their relationship from one in which he is immediately sorry he brought her along, to the inevitable realization that they are in love, not with those they presumably drove across America to see, but with each other.

A certain ability to suspend reality is necessary to get into the spirit of the movie, but for those who can, it is a trip you will remember for a long time.
