He has convinced himself that he can negotiate a deal to take over a resort off the coast of Hawaii.

"First viewing - Feb. 17th I went from Nicholson being behind the camera to being in front of it, and had hoped this would be worthwhile given the cast. It starts out really strong and ends on a pretty strong note, but in between I found it quite tedious and dull.
