Poor Eddie Wilson Jr. is a slob who can't catch a break -- that is, until he inherits nearly $80 million from his father. Unbeknown to Eddie Jr., however, the fortune comes from his dad's looting of Egyptian archeological treasures. Required to claim the money by traveling to Egypt, Eddie is beset by con artists on the long ship ride there. As if that weren't stressful enough, when he finally arrives he learns the local sheik has sentenced to death anyone claiming the treasure.
