Trama: Alla High Carver School di Omaha (Nebraska) è tempo di elezioni: Tracy Flick, l'allieva più brillante dell'istituto, sembra la sola candidata realmente motivata a ricoprire la carica di presidente del consiglio studentesco. Tuttavia, Jim McAllister, docente di educazione civica ritenuto da tutti un insegnante modello, considera Tracy un' arrivista priva di scrupoli e propone a Paul Metzler, il capitano della squadra di football, di candidarsi per la medesima carica. La sorpresa di Tracy nell'apprendere di non essere l'unica candidata sarà ancora più grande quando vedrà scendere in campo anche la sorella di Paul, Tammy, desiderosa di vendicarsi del fratello, colpevole di essersi fidanzato con Lisa, una ragazza di cui si era invaghita. I tre candidati non potrebbero avere programmi più diversi: se Tracy punta al miglioramento dell'efficenza dell'istituto, Paul si concentra sulle attività ricreative. Tammy, al contrario, si pone in palese rottura con il sistema scolastico invitando gli studenti ad astenersi. Nel frattempo la vita sentimentale di McAllister si complica: frustrato dalla monotonia coniugale, stringe una relazione con Linda, moglie di un suo ex collega licenziato a causa di una relazione proprio con Tracy. Quando la campagna elettorale giunge al culmine, Tracy, schiacciata dalla pressione psicologica, strappa tutti i manifesti elettorali affissi da Paul. Viene aperta un'inchiesta: interrogata da McAllister, Tammy si autoaccusa, scagionando Tracy che in questo modo ottiene una vittoria di misura su Paul. McAllister tuttavia non ci sta: incaricato dello spoglio, fa sparire alcune schede, proclamando vincitore Metzler. Il trucco viene però smascherato proprio quando la moglie di McAllister scopre di essere stata tradita. Licenziato, ridotto sul lastrico dal divorzio, il professore è costretto a trasferirsi: riuscirà a farsi una nuova vita e, qualche anno dopo, incontrerà casualmente Tracy a Washingthon, ormai lanciata in un'irresistibile carriera politica

L'unico modo per ottenere il denaro necessario, è quello di riscuotere una polizza assicurativa di un milione di dollari intestata a suo fratello Raymond, scomparso ormai da cinque anni. Ma il tempo trascorso non è sufficiente per dichiarare la morte ufficiale di Raymond. Un giorno Paul trova per caso un cadavere e dopo averlo reso irriconoscibile lo spaccia per suo fratello ottenendo così il diritto a riscuotere la polizza di cui è beneficiario. Tutto sembra andare per il meglio quando uno scrupoloso perito assicurativo a caccia di promozioni e una coppia di imbranati killer decideranno di mettersi sulla sua strada. (Mymovies)
