In the depressed town of Eagle Rock, Iowa, the Reverend Clayton Brooks (Creator/DickVanDyke) spearheads his community's effort to rise to the Cold Turkey challenge. In a campaign devised by public-relations expert Merwin Wren (Bob Newhart), the Valiant Tobacco Company has promised a $25-million cash prize to any town in America that can [[GoingColdTurkey quit smoking completely]] for 30 days. So Brooks leads the charge in this "Battle of the Butt", hoping to become a local hero in the process. However, when Wren shows up to undermine his efforts, and well-known TV newscasters (all played by Radio/BobAndRay) turn the spotlight of celebrity on the town and its citizens, this wicked comedy kicks into high gear.

** There's even some Iowa Doubling: The opening scene, ostensibly set at Hiram Grayson's residence in the South, was actually filmed at the governor's mansion in Des Moines.

* BolivianArmyEnding / BittersweetEnding: The film ends with the town celebrating their victory, oblivious to the fact that Reverend Brooks, Dr. Proctor, and Merwin Wren have all just been shot and are calling for help. And Eagle Rock is "saved" by the arrival of a defense plant that soon enshrouds the entire town in the pollution belched from its giant, cigarette-shaped smokestacks.
