Don Ameche's here, along with a couple of bored, retired folks in Florida. So this must be Cocoon. But this time, instead of seeking the secrets of youth with the help of aliens, Don and his buddies (George C. Scott and Sylvia Sidney) seek happiness by stealing money from drug dealers. They move, change their identities and try to enjoy their instant wealth in the higher rungs of yachting society. Soon they discover—surprise, suprise—that money doesn't buy bliss. Don, George, Sylvia and their teen punk pal Susan (Dress Gray) Rinell prove to be charming, but their light little movie is too little and too lite.
