- Howard Ratner (ADAM SANDLER) runs a high-end jewelry store in New York City where, thanks to introductions made for him by Demany (LAKEITH STANFIELD), he caters to wealthy celebrities such as NBA star Kevin Garnett (KEVIN GARNETT). But being a hustler, Howard is deep in debt, including to his brother-in-law, Aron (ERIC BOGOSIAN), whose goons are repeatedly threatening him to pay up. And things aren't any better at home, what with a pending divorce from his wife, Dinah (IDINA MENZEL), who's had enough of his behavior that includes having a girlfriend, Julia (JULIA FOX), one of his employees, on the side.
But having just received a stone from an African mine that contains gems that could be worth a million dollars, Howard thinks he'll hit the motherload at an upcoming auction.
