One of the most bizarre celebrity romances of the 1990s was that of Ted Danson and Whoopi Goldberg, and it was played up to comic degrees here as they play a redneck, cowboy-style car salesman Hal (Danson) and a socially aware, liberated Afro-American Sarah (her) who fall in love.

When Sarah's daughter Zora discovers here father was a sperm donor, she decides to seek the man out, discovering to everyone's horror that he's none of the than Hal, the bozo car salesman who's trademark is TV ads featuring animals.

Hal and Sarah are bought together out of joint concern for their child, and slowly fall for each other despite the cultural gulfs between them. Their affair causes consternation and shock among everyone around the pair, including Zora's boyfriend (a young Will Smith) and the co-workers at Hal's auto yard. It's a fluffy but cute big studio tale of love conquering all.
