Ken and Steve reluctantly give up their lawnmowing duties for a weekend of fishing, booze and male bonding. Unfortunately the fish aren't biting, supplies are running low and worst of all ... the beer just ran out.
Then, without warning, an alien colony ship arrives in orbit, and that's when Ken's problems REALLY start.
