Fact or fiction: wearing a plastic bag helps lose weight.

I wanted to lose some weight in 2 and a half weeks, before school opens.
My cousin suggested that if I sat out in the sun all day, wearing a plastic garbage bag, it would make you sweat, and therefore, I would lose weight. I thought he was joking, but he said he was quite serious. Is this true or not?
