Plot
Shenanigans among a professional football team include owner Big Ed Bookman (Robert Preston) dealing with a daughter named Barbara Jane (Jill Clayburgh) who has a series of chaste affairs with the team players. Among the latest are the tie with star player Billy Clyde Puckett (Burt Reynolds) and his friendly rival Marvin ‘Shake’ Tiller (Kris Kristofferson). Concerned with the abnormality of his manly players, Big Ed seems to find a series of self-help charlatans to give the team advice for the lovelorn and how to play tough football. Among the spiritual advisors to the team are Friedrich Bismark (Bert Convy) and Clara Pelf (Lotte Lenya), but Shake and Billy Clyde know they have to be gentlemen to settle the score on who wins the owner’s daughter.
