I was totally surprised just how good this movie actually is becausewhen I first saw it I was only mildly amused! I must say however, thatI am still very disappointed that Donald O'Connor wasn't given a biggerand better role! He was an enormous talent.
There is a great chemistry among all the main cast members and Matthauhas never been funnier.
I am tremendously glad that this picture got made because we get to seeLemmon and Matthau team up for the very last time; in a vehicle thatputs their talent to great use. Brent Spiner proves that "Data" fromStar Trek the Next Geeration is not the only good character he canplay.
The storyline is really quite simple but the comedy and the characterswork really well and I laughed heartily throughout this movie and Ihighly recommend it.

While this movie is not the most entertaining in the world, I think itis better than most over all. I mean it had it's little laughs and justall around a good feeling. It's not too often we get to see two oldgeezers just having fun with their age and honestly having a good timewith the jokes. Walter and Jack had such a great chemistry together asfriends/brother in-laws. Just watching them romancing these women wasfun and you rooted for them all the way because wither we have to admitit or not, for their age, they still had game! :D I loved just thewhole plot of being able to move on and having fun no matter how oldyou are. I'd recommend this movie for a nice laugh if you want one.

A competent comedy that delivers the laughs for fans of Jack Lemmon andWalter Matthau. I suppose this film was made for those who enjoyed thetwo GRUMPY OLD MEN films, as there seemed to be a bunch of these buddyteam-ups spotlighting the comical duo in their twilight years. The ideais a sure-fire one: Matthau, a bumbling gambler who's thousands ofdollars in debt, connives his unsuspecting friend Lemmon into taking afree cruise with him where they can meet rich old ladies; the catch is,they've been signed on as Dance Hosts and Matthau can't dance. OUT TOSEA is a funny film, and not all of the chuckles are to be foundcourtesy of Lemmon and Matthau. I found Brent Spiner (best known asData from STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION) to be very humorous as thesnobby ball-busting dance coordinator. As the prissy boss of the twoaging actors, he manages to match them in the laughs department. Thoughthe film doesn't really need any, there's also a a love story or two tobe found here as well, involving Dyan Cannon (who looks pretty fine forher years). *** out of ****
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.
