Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, the big screen's original "odd couple," star in this riotously funny high-seas adventure. In search of lonely ladies with big bank accounts, happy-go-lucky Charlie (Matthau) cons his cranky, widower brother-in-law Herb (Lemmon) into joining him on an all-expenses-paid, luxury cruise. But their "deluxe accommodations" are deep in the bowels of the ship, and Charlie has signed them on as dance hosts! Under the tyranny of crooning cruise director Gil Godwyn (Brent Spiner), Charlie and Herb are in for rough weather as they romance the luscious Liz (Dyan Cannon) and the lovely Vivian (Gloria De Haven).

It is nice to see a movie though, that does not rely on big budget SFX. Nice to see actors acting for a change.
My wife and I are both fans of Jack Lemmon and Walter Mathau. Together, they have produced some hysterical films, most notably "Grumpy Old Men". This film, I'm sad to say, is merely a shadow of what it could have been.
The basic plot -- an elderly (yet charming) con-man tricks his recently widowed brother-in-law into taking a cruise. Enormous humor could have been derived from this basic premise -- but unfortunately, enormous humor was NOT the result. The plot was shallow and predictable, and the humor muted. While there were a few points at which I laughed, it is certainly not the comedy classic "Grumpy Old Men" was.
I can't imagine ever caring to see this film again.
Herb Sullivan (Lemmon) widower, is reminiscing his wedding anniversary. He seemed a little down. Therefore, his good friend Charlie (Matthau), yeah sure, invites him on a FREE cruse to cheer him up. Now I am not saying that Charlie has something up his sleeve but is cosigning up to Liz (Dyan Cannon); she appears to be a wealthy and attractive co-passenger. Soon Herb finds out what FREE really means.
The story is not as important as the one-liners and some good acting from quite a few veteran actors that can really put on a song and dance performance.
However, Gil Godwyn was the one nice touch to the movie. Seeing Brent Spiner (Lt. Commander Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation) in this type of role was wonderful. My parents hated the movie but felt Spiner stole the show. I love to see performers play different types of roles, and I feel Spiner excelled here.

I wish the language could be a little cleaner.
But these two actors make such a wonderful pair!
I will probably watch it again.
One of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. Of course, seeing Donald O'Connor and Gloria DeHaven after seeing them in many musicals was a rare treat. Read morePublished on Jan. 10 2013 by Winnifred Warren

Great Movie!!! If you like good comedy then this is a great one to see. The grumpy old men are always great together. Supporting cast is great too.Published on May 26 2004
So what if this movie is a rehash, what movie isn't a rehash of another. But what makes this film worth the while. Is the paring of Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. Read morePublished on April 10 2004 by Ben hayden
Let's not fool ourselves, okay? We all know that this film was made because of the success of the "Grumpy Old Men" movies. Read morePublished on Jan. 6 2004 by Brett Johnson
Don't waste your time. Boring, painfully slow, and only mildly funny. I feel sorry for good actors like Lemmon and Matthau for having been associated with this. Read morePublished on Jan. 12 2003
