Dillon McCabe (Chatham) is the titular Philly Kid who, on the same night he was crowned an NCAA wrestling champion, becomes involved in the killing of a police officer. He is sentenced to fifteen years in prison, enough time to contemplate his actions and vow not to fight again.

After he's separated from his high-born countrymen during a railroad robbery Chan resolves to rescue the princess himself and reluctantly buddies up with the ever-glib, handsomely broken-nosed Owen Wilson ("Bottle Rocket," "The Minus Man," "The Haunting"), one of the incompetent outlaws who stuck up the train.
