Following a hang-gliding accident Homer literally drops in on married film stars Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin,in their secluded hide-away where they go to escape the media. Homer starts to work for them but gives them away to press and fans,who besiege the house. The angry couple,along with visiting friend Ron Howard,are then involved in a chase after Homer who has stolen their property for a mobile movie museum. It all ends in a court order restraining Homer from going near any celebrities - though Ron Howard decides that the whole story can supply the plot for his next film.
