Not knowing why this is happening to him, Warner learns to accept his peculiar situation, resigning himself to a life of loneliness. This all changes while on a blind date with Cybill, a beautiful girl who, though put off at first by his awkward advances, gradually begins to warm up to his unique charms. Everything is going well until… BAM! A well-timed punch introduces Cybill to Warner's strange situation firsthand, and thus Warner, recognizing that she may be the kindred spirit he's been searching for, must now get her to accept him as he is before the night is up. Funny, sweet, and entirely absurd, "The Pop Warner" is ultimately a film about acceptance, relationships, and the baggage, both physical and emotional, that we bring when trying to connect with another human being.
