Overview
From the creators of "The Big Night" comes this brilliant throwback to the screwball comedies of yesteryear. Coming across like a modern-day Marx Brothers movie, this film will keep you laughing.

Arthur (Tucci) and Maurice (Platt) are starving but dedicated actors. They will not stoop so low as to find other work between acting jobs.

A desperate attempt to scam some free pastries from a bakery (bringing all their impressive acting talents to bear) initiates a chain reaction of events that finds them on board a cruise ship with a complement of passengers who are certifiable, every last one of them.
