A pair of preppy yet constitutionally mismatched American cousins, a salesman and a navy officer, argue about romance and politics while working in the beautiful Spanish city of the film's title. Set during the eighties, it explores topics both heady (American exceptionalism, Cold War foreign policy) and hilarious (the ins and outs of international dating, the proper shaving method).
