Things couldn't be going worse for Sean (DR. DRE). Not only is he recently unemployed, but his landlord has also given him just three days to pay the rent before he's kicked out and his car has been booted. His laidback, pot-smoking roommate, Dee Loc (SNOOP DOGG), thus suggests that Sean apply for a manager's position at the local car wash where he works.
After meeting sassy cashier Antoinette (ANGELL CONWELL), Sean manages to impress the gun-toting owner, Mr. Washington (GEORGE WALLACE), enough to get the job that became vacant after Washington fired his last manager, Chris (EMINEM).
Sean then meets the various other employees of the car wash, including Bear (TOMMY "TINY" LISTER JR.), C-Money (LAMONT BENTLEY), Ronald (RASHAAN NALL), Lil' Dee (ARIF S. KINCHEN) and Jimmy (ALEX THOMAS, as well as DeWayne (BRUCE BRUCE), the portly security guard who occasionally shows up.
Although things seem to be going well as Sean jumps into the position with vigor, his overzealousness doesn't jive with the workers, particularly Dee Loc who decides to become a constant irritant in his side both at work and at home.
Even so, the two eventually decide they have bigger problems to face when two dimwitted criminals, Face (SHAWN FONTENO) and Slim (DJ POOH), kidnap Mr. Washington who's also constantly being harassed by Chris over the phone. From that point on, Sean and Dee Loc do what they must to save both their boss and their friendship.
