Plot

In rural South Dakota, Rebecca "Becca" Warner (Gugino) graduates as her high school valedictorian. Becca decides to attend UCLA, which slightly worries her parents Walter (Smith) and Connie (Pickett). Her steady boyfriend Travis is also sad to see her going to school so far away, and secretly starts to see a mutual friend, Tracy. Upon arriving in Los Angeles, Becca experiences some culture shock both in the city and in her dorm. She meets her resident advisor Crawl (Shore), an eccentric perpetual student who shows her around. She eventually embraces her new surroundings and gives herself a makeover, buying new clothes in SoCal fashion, cuts and dyes her hair, and even gets a tattoo. Soon, however, she's faced with returning to her sleepy South Dakota farm and an inevitable marriage proposal from Travis over Thanksgiving Break. These mixed feelings lead to her spontaneously asking Crawl to come home with her. In the United States and Canada, the title of valedictorian (an anglicized derivation from the Latin vale dicere, to say farewell) is given to the top graduate of the graduating class (the Australia/New Zealand equivalent being dux, although some Australian universities use the American term) of an educational institution. ...

Needless to say, Becca's family and Travis are shocked by her new lifestyle and appearance, and by Crawl. Soon, Travis makes the expected marriage proposal, but Becca can't answer and Crawl steps in by saying that he has already asked Becca to marry him. This causes a lot of tension between the family and Crawl. He tries to fit in with the farming life, but he ridiculed and forced to do jobs such as slopping the hogs and shoveling manure. However, Crawl loves the farm life and enjoys every minute of it. Walter and Crawl eventually get to have a heart-to-heart talk while fishing, and when Grandpa Warner has a heart attack, Crawl attempts CPR to save him. Afterwards, Walter and Grandpa Warner accept him, as does Becca's younger brother.


Travis, still seeing Becca's best friend Tracy (Thiessen), is determined to break up Crawl and Becca's engagement. He slips Crawl a mickey, as well as Tracy, and gets the farm's hired hand Theo to place the unconscious two in the barn under the guise that they had slept together. Becca finds the two in the morning and jumps to that exact conclusion. She tells Crawl to leave, and it's not until Tracy tries to drive her car does she notice that something is wrong. Her seat is pushed way back, and she immediately deduces what happened the previous night.

Tracy and Crawl enter the Thanksgiving dinner at the Warners with this evidence. It isn't long before Theo admits to the deed and Travis is caught as well. The Warners kick them out of the house, Becca and Crawl reconcile, and everyone sits down to enjoy Thanksgiving.
