Care-free Charlie cons his widower brother-in-law Herb into an expenses-paid luxury cruise in search of rich, lonely ladies. The catch is that they are required to be dance hosts! With a tyrannical cruise director, and the luscious Liz and lovely Vivian, our heroes have lots of mis-adventures before they finally return to port.Written by

Vivian is led to believe that Herb is a doctor, but when she finds out he isn't, she's upset that he lied to her. He explains later that it was Charlie that lied to her, but that isn't correct either. Charlie lied to the flight attendant and Vivian just happened to overhear it. See more »
There isn't much to say about this film. It is entertaining, and was not made with the intent of winning any major awards, but just to make people laugh. Most of the humor works quite well too. It is very reminiscent of Lemmon and Matthau's other projects together THE ODD COUPLE II and Lemmon's solo with James Garner MY FELLOW AMERICANS.
The film has divine originality as the plot has not been done before; but the story has its share of cliches. The dance host director (played by Brent Spiner) who has the honor of taking on the "bad guy villain" role of this film is quite laughable, but still acceptable. The film goes from depressing to funny as hell and makes you forget your life for a while.
Quite a good comeback for the Grumpys. Well worth watching. I recommend you see GRUMPY OLD MEN, THE ODD COUPLE II and MY FELLOW AMERICANS.
OUT TO SEA: 4/5.
