Synopsis

Arthur and Maurice (Stanley Tucci and Oliver Platt) are two unemployed actors, so poor that they have to devise a series of scams to feed themselves. When their latest scheme backfires, they are left with unlikely compensation: tickets to see a version of 'Hamlet' instead. After being chased away by the leading actor, they hide in boxes which are then loaded onto the S.S Intercontinental, heading for Paris. As they travel across the Atlantic, the pair are forced to use all their acting skills as they pass themselves off as stewards, but they soon realise that almost no-one on board is what they claim to be.
