The film begins with a parody episode of “American Success Story” documenting the lives of the main characters since the last movie. Lou Dorchen has become a mogul with his Lougle empire and his side band, Motley Lou. Nick Webber has become a popular musician mainly because he’s made hit songs from the present before the actual artists could make it themselves. Lou’s son, Jacob, hates his dad and does not want to be associated with him. Nick also mentions their buddy Adam Yates, who wrote a bestselling book and is currently gone on a trip of self-discovery. Nick is seen recording a music video for the song “Stay”, which he ripped off of Lisa Loeb and incorporated his own lyrics. The real Lisa Loeb works as his cat wrangler and mentions that the song feels personal to her. Nick quietly apologizes for stealing the song.
