After being awestruck by their beach front mansion, the family hits the beach, but it’s unlike any beach they’ve ever seen before. The family sticks out like a sore thumb amongst the oiled-up, muscular men and topless, exotic women. As a result, they decide to spend the next day undergoing a total South Beach transformation: from spray tans, to clothes shopping, to renting flashy exotic cars. They will be put to the test to see if they can handle the South Beach lifestyle full of late night fist-pumping, house music, and excessive hair gel.
