Calvin "Babyface" Simms (Marlon Wayans) is a very short convicted jewel thief. He is seen getting released and meeting up with his goofball cohort Percy (Tracy Morgan). Percy tells Calvin of a job involving stealing a valuable diamond, ordered by a mobster called Walken (Chazz Palminteri). After the successful robbery, the duo are almost arrested, but not before Calvin manages to stash the diamond in the purse of a nearby woman. The thieves follow the handbag's owner to her home where they discover a couple, Darryl (Shawn Wayans) and Vanessa Edwards (Kerry Washington), the former of whom is eager to have a child.
