Editors Note
Note Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau are reunited in this hysterically funny high seas romantic adventure. Gambler and con artist Charlie (Walter Matthau) is desperate to meet single, rich ladies with large bank accounts. When he persuades his lonely widower brother-in-law, Herb (Jack Lemmon), into accompanying him on a pleasure cruise, he neglects to mention that they will be working as dance hosts and masquerading as wealthy bachelors. Much to Herb's chagrin, their accommodations are in the bowels of the high-class ship, and they are forced to work for hilariously tyrannical cruise director Gil Godwyn (Brent Spiner). Herb dutifully dances his way into the heart of a lonely widower, Vivian (Gloria De Haven), pretending he is a doctor while Charlie cons high-stakes gamblers and sets his sights on a much younger oil tycoon, Liz (Dyan Cannon). As Charlie and Herb struggle to keep their real identities a secret, their romances blossom until the truth is revealed and they must act fast to save their newly discovered loves.
Plot Summary
Summary A gambler and irrepressible con-artist, Charlie (Walter Matthau) persuades his lonely widower brother-in-law Herb (Jack Lemmon) to join him on a pleasure cruise. What he neglected to mention is that they will masquerade as dance instructors in order to bilk rich women out of their fortunes. Ballroom bumbling ensues in this hilarious comedy, which features fabulous performances by an all star cast including Dyan Cannon, Elaine Stritch, and Gloria De Haven.
