NATIONAL LAMPOON'S GOLD DIGGERS breaks new comedic ground for NATIONAL LAMPOON, as it explores the misadventures of two completely incompetent con men, who, in desperation, turn their attention to the art of gold digging and is helmed by first time director Gary Priesler.
Cal (Will Friedle) and Lenny (Chris Owen) are two con men who dream of the fabled 'good' life that includes big bucks, cool parties, fast cars and hot women, especially dream girl Charlene (Nikki Zierling).
After a string of failed robbery attempts, Cal and Lenny turn to gold digging. Their scheme is to marry the aging and inseparable Mundt sisters, Doris (Louise Lasser) and Betty (Renee Taylor), who the boys met after unsuccessfully trying to mug them.
While courting the women in the hope of inheriting their Beverly Hill estate, Cal and Lenny learn that the sisters' apparent fortune came from their father's innovative use of a sausage casing back in the 20s, which resulted in the world's first condom fortune.
Unbeknownst to Cal and Lenny the Mundt sisters have lost this fortune and, now destitute, are marrying the guys so that they can knock off their young suitors and collect on their generous life insurance policies.
