As a child, Davey Leary (Rick Moranis) was picked on and bullied by Roscoe Fang Bigger (Tom Arnold), otherwise known as “Fang.” Now, David is a novelist who has been asked to teach a semester of creative writing at his former school. Thinking the change of pace would be good for his own rebellious son, Ben (Blake Bashoff), David returns home with high hopes of being welcomed as the local-boy-made-good.
When Ben is caught bullying a sensitive student, Kirby (Cody McMains), David is called into Principal Kokeler’s (Don Knotts) office to meet with the boys and Kirby’s father. After the meeting, David realizes that the other father is the dreaded “Fang.” For Rosco and David, the past isn’t history – it’s a running start!
Roscoe Bigger: “Chicken!”
David Leary: “Pork roast!”
