Storyline

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 Derek Picken <dpicken@email.msn.com>

Goofs

When the bookmaker confronts Charlie at the track, Charlie has a wad of cash. He offers to give the bookie $500. The bookie responds by taking all the money, which he says is $1000. He would have no way of knowing how much was in the stack. Charlie had no money when he placed the bet. At 70 to 1, his $10 bet would have given him $700, not $1000. See more »

A Very Funny Movie
28 December 1998 | by (Pembroke Pines, Florida) – See all my reviews

Charlie Gordon (Walter Matthau) is the guy who can't seem to let go of horse racing. The debts pile up high on his head. So, he decides that it is time for him and his brother-in-law to take a trip out on the open seas. His brother-in-law, Herb Sullivan (Jack Lemmon) whose wife passed away reluctantly tags along. It is not until they board the Westerdam that it is realized that Charlie signed them up as dance hosts. What follows is some hilarious antics not only on the open seas, but on the dance floor. And a sweet love story also comes along too. People criticize this movie for the pointlessness it brings. It is actually quite funny, but seems to be geared more toward the seniors' group. I think this movie was quite good. Rent it for a weekend and just see.
