Pearce plays bully, Kirk, who picks on the new kid, Cory.
To protect himself Cory doesn’t use his fists, he scares the bullies off by fibbing that his father is a hit man for the mob.
Word quickly spreads and gets the attention of REAL mobsters. Now Cory’s Dad has a problem!
As shenanigans between bullies, Cory's family & mobsters ensue, Cory finds a way to make things right.
As Kirk, Pearce is persuaded to follow Cory as the new leader with the would-be mobster Dad, then to help Cory out of a jam. This role allowed Pearce to show off his comedic timing and physical humor.
