When the young red-neck Wally curses the name of Shakespeare and opts to attend a Monster Truck Show instead of “As You Like It”, he feels the wrath of the Bard.  Waking up after a heavy night of boozing, he finds he can only speak in Shakespearian verse.  His best friend Ramie searches for a cure from their high school English teacher Ingrid, while his girlfriend Doris swoons for the new Wally.
