There's Carl (Pataki), a crap vaudeville entertainer driven mad after losing a booking; "Big Dick" Peters (Minor), a former baseball player with a history of indecent exposure; and a "latent homosexual" (Stucker), who really doesn't seem very latent at all. They escape from the lunatic asylum, and their route to escape eventually brings them to the Oxford Corrective…
