Out to Sea is an American comedy film that was released in 1997 and stars Jack Lemon and Walter Matthau. The film follows the story of Charlie Gordon (Matthau) who is an addicted gambler on the run from his bookies. He decides to hide out from his certain doom by signing up for an all-inclusive sea-cruise. But he doesn't want to do it alone, so he enlists the help of his friend Herb Sullivan (Lemon) who happens to be under the impression that this will be a pleasant little vacation. Low and behold there is a catch. The catch is that they can't just jump on this cruise, in order to stay they have to work aboard the ship as dance hosts and stay in cramped rooms in the bottom of the ship. Conveniently, Charlie doesn't tell herb about this until the boat has left port and he is trapped. After the fury subsides, Herb begins to enjoy his stay and both of the boys end up falling for two women vacationers Liz LaBreche (Dyan Cannon) and Vivian (Gloria DeHaven). Now the only trick is covering up their relationships from the hard-nosed cruise director Gil Godwin (Brent Spiner) who seems to have it out for Charlie.
