At the opening, Jon Voight’s kids have lived with their mother (Millie Perkins) and her new man, attorney Richard Crenna, for several years. Voight swoops into New York to take the moppets off on a luxurious sea cruise with the promise of a new-found sense of responsibility.

But Voight quickly realizes that he really doesn’t know how to communicate with the kids who, for their part, resent the fact he’s more interested in chasing blondes in the bar than hanging out with them.

Despite the attempted interference of his sharp daughter, Voight manages to initiate a shipboard romance with a sympathetic French woman, Marie-Christine Barrault.
