and will come looking for Craig. As a precaution, Craig's father decides to have him stay with Elroy, Craig's sex-crazed, lottery winning uncle, and his cousin Day-Day . Initially, life in Rancho Cucamonga seems to be ideal, however, trouble soon arises in many different areas. While staying with his uncle and cousin, Craig learns about the neighborhood trouble; a family of Mexican thugs (the Jokers) living next door whom have all served prison time at one point or another, the oldest of whom had just been released. Craig also takes notice of their eldest sister Carla, however, he's warned by Day-Day to stay away from her because of her brothers and the trouble that they pose. Craig visits Day-Day at his work place and meets Day-Day's friend/co-worker "Roach" . After an angry customer attempts to scam Day-Day out of money by returning a broken CD, Craig throws him out of the store.

Immediately after, Day-Day notices D'Wana and Baby D parked across the street from the store waiting for Day-Day to come out. Day-Day locks the door and makes Craig and Roach join him into the back. The three of them are drawn outside by D'Wana and Baby D. Craig and Roach stand on the sidelines while Baby D attempts to run after Day-Day, but fails when Day-Day proves to be much too fast. Baby D tells Day-Day to hook her up with Craig, but Craig runs inside which angers D'Wana and Baby D, and they further vandalize Day-Day's car with a brick and then they leave. Craig Day-Day and Roach then stay in the back and smoke where Roach shows Craig and Day-Day a brownie with chronic in it. At this time, the store's owner, Pinky, arrives to find the store locked up. He believes Craig is a thief in the process of robbing the store and pulls a gun on him. Craig attempts to explain the situation, but Pinky continues to be unreasonable. When Pinky slips on some CD cases spilled on the floor, he loses his gun, which Craig retrieves and continues to tell Pinky he's not a thief, and that Day-Day is his cousin. Pinky verifies the truth from Day-Day and fires both him and Roach out of anger. The three of them ride back to Day-Day's, with Day-Day extremely upset with Craig. As they're sitting in the front yard trying to think of a solution, as earlier that day the mailman delivered a delinquency notice of foreclosure on their house. Roach attempts to leave but slips on his skateboard which is then intentionally run over by the Joker brothers' Cadillac. The three of them sit and watch the Jokers exit their vehicle, with the elder Joker removing a suspicious hydraulic pump from the trunk. At this point, Craig formulates an idea to find out what's inside the pump. Craig and Day-Day jump the fence of the Joker house. Craig breaks inside while the three brothers are having a small party with their dates downstairs. While Roach is trying to keep the Joker's dog Chico occupied with a package of bologna, but once he runs out Roach uses his chronic brownie which makes Chico passout. Craig finds the hydraulic pump in the elder Joker's bedroom, which turns out to be a hiding place for a large amount of drug cash, and takes some of it. After attempting to escape, Craig accidentally jumps through Carla's window, which actually impresses her that he has the courage to come see her in spite of her intimidating brothers.

Day-Day and Roach grow nervous about Craig's prolonged absence and attempt to go find him. They knock at the door and are greeted by the three brothers armed with pistols and automatic rifles. They take Day-Day and Roach hostage, and attempt to find out where their money went. Eventually, Craig's father, Deebo and his younger brother Tyrone show up simultaneously. When Craig realizes that Day-Day hasn't returned home, he, Mr. Jones, and Elroy plan a rescue mission. Craig's father knocks out Baby Joker with a two-by-four beam and proceeds to help Craig and Elroy liberate Day-Day and Roach.

gagged, attempt to escape. Elroy arrives and berates Day-Day for getting him involved in the mess they're in, while untying him and Roach from their duct tape bindings. Craig struggles with Joker, until Day-Day and Roach appear. They both dive in to help, but Joker moves out of the way, and grabs an assault rifle, pointing it at the three of them. Deebo appears behind Joker, knocking him out and takes the weapon, aiming it at Craig. Then Chico arrives and attacks Deebo.

Soon after, the police arrive and arrest the Joker brothers, Deebo and Tyrone. However they're unaware of the hydraulic pump and its contents, and thus Craig, Day-Day and Roach are left with the cash which helps in paying their debts so that Elroy and Day-Day can keep their house. The film ends with Craig leaving Rancho Cucamonga, and him witnessing D'Wana and Baby Dee showing up and tossing a brick at Day-Day's BMW, smashing his windows, and driving off, laughing.

BBQ', owned by the cousins' fathers, Willie and Elroy . A couple of baseheads try to rob Money Mike's store and Craig and Day-Day catch them both. He offers them a cash reward but Craig denies it and invites him to his party. Then, a gang of thugs, supposedly the grandsons of some carolers that were chased of by Day-Day for loitering in front of the corner store, begin to chase Craig and Day-Day, but, unable to catch them, then proceed to beat Moly for hiding them, resulting in the two losing their jobs. As revenge, Willie rats Moly out to the Department of Health. Craig and Day-Day throw a rent party later that night to recoup their stolen
