Brian Levine and Eugene Jacoby, two New York lawyers and lifelong friends, are restive under the constraints of careers, family responsibilities and approaching middle age, and decide to have a last fling by escaping to Greece, and, hopefully, romance and adventure. Brian is also determined to fulfill a cherished dream: When he was a young boy he was cast as "Electra" in a school play, but stage fright caused him to panic and flee the theatre. Now he wants to make amends by speaking the lines at the Acropolis in the moonlight.

Brian Levine and Eugene Jacoby, two New York lawyers and lifelong friends, are restive under the constraints of careers, family responsibilities and approaching middle age, and decide to have a last fling by escaping to Greece, and, hopefully, romance and adventure. Brian is also determined to fulfill a cherished dream: When he was a young boy he was cast as "Electra" in a school play, but stage fright caused him to panic and flee the theatre. Now he wants to make amends by speaking the lines at the Acropolis in the moonlight. To do this Brian and Eugene have to break into the grounds of the Acropolis, whereupon their troubles mount when they fear that they may have accidentally killed a guard, and have to go "underground" in Athens (without being able to speak the language). Meanwhile their long-suffering wives appear on the scene, adding to the farcical and very funny complications which multiply delightfully until all is set right in the end.
