James King (Will Ferrell) is an extremely wealthy hedge fund manager, engaged to his gorgeous gold-digging fiancée Alissa (Alison Brie). His car washer, Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart), and his wife, Rita, are trying to put their daughter Makayla in a better school away from the bad neighborhood they live in. Darnell meets James when he accidentally frightens James in the parking lot. James makes a speech about how he got to his success, and to inspire Darnell to go for his. He pulls out a big wad of cash, only to give two singles as a "tip" for Darnell.
