This story is set in small town, U.S.A. The town is not named Grandview, but it is in Illinois. C. Thomas Howell plays Tim, a young man who has brown up with a silver spoon in his mouth. One day, he is out on a date and he gets his dad's car stuck in the mud. The nearest place to ask for help is Michelle "Mike" Cody's demolition derby arena. He gets towed out--and this sets into motion a series of events. He's in big trouble with his Dad, who local hotshot and county commissioner. They don't see eye to eye on things and this doesn't help. Tim also wants to go to college in Florida and study marine biology and his father wants him to go to the state university and then take up the family business (real estate). At the same time, he becomes infatuated with Mike (Jamie Lee Curtis) and begins making up reasons to stop by the derby. She is having her own problems with her old flame Slam (Swayze) who has been trying to hook up with her, despite the fact that he is still married to Candy (Leigh). She is also having trouble with the city fathers who are trying to force her out of business. Tim and Mike eventually are able to help each other with their problems and get what they both really want.
