Having been best friends in high school, Casey and Miller, themselves are already 21 or over and want to take Jeff Chang out for his 21st birthday. However, he declines, as he has to get up early the next morning to arrive at the important med school interview at 8 am. After Miller threatens to make a lot of noise the whole night if he persists in his refusal he accepts to come along for just one drink.
In a bar, Jeff accidentally hits a boy named Randy with a dart. Randy gets aggressive and they have to flee, even though Casey was having a nice chat with a girl named Nicole. Jeff gets excited that he is allowed to enter bars now, drinks too much, and becomes unresponsive. Casey and Miller want to take him home, but do not remember where he lives. Since Nicole knows Jeff, they try to find her, because she may know where he lives. They sneak into a sorority house, where they think Nicole lives, but it is the wrong house, where only female Latina students live.
Along the way, they encounter two blindfolded women ready to be paddled as part of their sorority initiation ritual. Miller has the women make out with each other, but these and the other women of the house are furious when they find out about the intrusion. They have to flee the house, and Casey and Miller throw Jeff from a balcony onto the pool cover that bounces him into a rose garden, and worry that they killed him, but he is not injured, except for thorns in his buttocks, although he is still ready to party.
They find Nicole, but she does not know the address, and refer them to Randy, who turns out to be her boyfriend. After Randy refuses to look up the address in his telephone, Miller threatens him with the gun they found in Jeff's pocket, to steal the telephone. He shoots into the air, causing a buffalo to panic and attack people, including Randy. At the address they find, it turns out that he does not live there anymore. There is a party going on in the house, and they have to join games in order to get access to the boy who may know the address, including a drinking game against some ethnic Serbian guys.
Finally they have access to him, but he does not know the new address. They leave Jeff in the care of two stoned students, who for fun undress him , write "Douchefag" on his forehead, and glue a teddy bear to his penis. After leaving the party he goes out on the street still like this. Casey and Miller want to get him dressed, but he runs away and is arrested after running across cars. Casey and Miller go to the police station, where they are told he has been transferred to a mental hospital. A woman pretends to escort them to that place, but it is a trap by the Latino women. They take revenge, and Casey and Miller, with buttocks branded and bruised by spanking, have to walk on the campus dressed in nothing but socks on their penises to get new clothes. In the mental health facility, Casey and Miller want to take Jeff home, but the hospital refuses. Then they smuggle him out, for which they have to throw him from the third floor, making them worry that they "killed him again", but again he is not injured. Jeff, now awake, steals the car on which he was dropped which turns out to be Randy's, and they flee, with Jeff driving recklessly.
Finally Casey and Miller help Jeff to get ready for the interview. They pull the teddy bear off, circumcising Jeff in the process, and dress him well. Randy has arrived at Jeff's home to destroy the room, but his father arrives and hits Randy. Encouraged by Casey and Miller, Jeff confesses to his father, who pressured him to go to medical school, that he does not want this. The father does not accept this, until Miller hits him. Randy admires Jeff for standing up against his father and reconciles with him.
Three months later, Miller, who is intelligent but lazy, improves his grades and wants to go to university. The night before his admissions interview, he is at a music festival with Casey, Nicole, who is Casey's girlfriend now, and Jeff. He has a wild night and arrives apologizing at his professor's office with a broken leg and red hair. The professor turns out to be the 'Chief' they saw repeatedly dancing alone in the street that earlier night.
