Will Ferrell plays Alec Gert, an egotistical, obnoxious bocce player at the top of his profession. He and his sidekick, played by Chris Parnell, seem invincible until their dominance is threatened by a new rival. Alec Gert's excessive pride causes him to spiral downward to comical lows. When he is at the depths of despair, he removes his shirt and bellows, Praise Delilah. My tower is a galloping trapeze!

After a wacky training process featuring a surprise cameo by Owen Wilson and a marginally-developed romantic subplot, he enters into a climactic showdown with his rival and emerges victorious - but not without learning a thing or two about friendship.
