Tom arrives in Los Angeles to stay with his American cousins, Al and Kitty Chadwick (Carrie Aizley), and to discover why his great-great-grandfather Charles left for England more than a hundred years ago. Al has invited two other cousins - Rick (Matt Griesser), who also lives in California, and Dave (Christopher Guest), who's on a road trip from North Carolina - to a family barbecue. With Rick's girlfriend, Julie (Maria Blasucci), and Al's neighbor, Mike (Fred Willard), rounding out the party, everyone gets to know each other a little better, and they put their heads together to figure out how the family ended up having branches in both the U.S. and England. As the drinks flow, tongues loosen, inhibitions are dropped, and ice is not the only thing that gets broken underneath the California sun.
