Along the way they meet Charles (Luke Evans), who extends an invitation to join him on a yacht. The couple bickers on anything possible. Their holiday turns into an adventure after they become prime suspects in a murder. The couple tries to save themselves and buckle up to fight back.

This film brings Aniston and Sandler together on screen after Just Go With It from 2011, also starring Brooklyn Decker and Nicole Kidman.
