National Lampoon's Gold Diggers
September 17, 2004
Cal (Will Friedle) and Lenny (Chris Owen) are con men. Their dreams center around that mythical "good life", including tons of money, big parties, fast cars, and gorgeous women. And when they think of gorgeous women, the first one that comes to mind is Charlene (Nikki Ziering).
In order to achieve their lofty goals, Cal and Lenny try robbery and purse snatching, but all that goes terribly awry. They change approaches and decide to become gold diggers.
Their targets in this scheme are the aging Mundt sisters, Doris (Louise Lasser) and Betty (Renee Taylor). The boys meet these inseparable ladies after trying to mug them, but instead decide to court them so that they might inherit the sisters' Beverly Hills estate, which comes from their father's creation of the world's first condom. What Cal and Lenny don't know is that the sisters have lost their fortune and are broke themselves. The only reason they're marrying the boys is to knock them off at some time in the future so that they can collect on their new, large-sized insurance policies.
When the honeymoon is over, Cal and Lenny realize that Betty and Doris aren't nearly so feeble as they might have imagined. Since these ladies won't be dying anytime soon, the boys try to figure a way to speed up the process. In the meantime, the sisters are using their new copy of Murder for Dummies to find a way to off the guys before they realize they've been conned themselves. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
