Plot – In a Louisiana city, Pat Bates owns everything: the bank, the newspaper and many supermarkets. When his ten-year-old son Eric returns home for the holidays, Pat allows him to choose everything he wants from the toys department. The boy chooses the most unexpected thing, that is the black clerk, Jack Brown, who's an unsuccessful writer who works in the mall to pay his 10,000 dollars debt. He's then forced to make the "toy" for the spoiled kid. At Bates' villa, a patient and clumsy Brown gets involved in terrible jokes and disasters, then with Eric he creates a newspaper in which they talk about Pat's spicy details. When Pat and Eric foil an important party, the "toy" is fired, but the boy doesn't want to lose his new friend and he goes at Brown's. Meanwhile Bates realizes he can't give billions or expensive toys to his kid, so he offers Jack a job as reporter in his newspaper. Finally Jack Brown manages to pay his debt and to have a better job.
