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).
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
i thought except for a very selective few moments this was very boring. there were a couple of funny parts and that's why i gave it a two star. NOT SUITABLE FOR CHLIDREN!Published on Dec 26 2002
