Review: Ticket To Paradise

By: Robert Prentice

Rom-coms are not normally my thing, but any time you see Julia Roberts and George Clooney get back together on screen you know you are going to have a good time. Ticket to Paradise centers around a divorced couple who teams up and travels to Bali to stop their daughter from making the same mistake they think they made 25 years ago. Of course, we all know how well that is going to go right? Check out the trailer below and our review.

Review

Ticket To Paradise starts out as something unique as far as rom-coms go with the on-screen chemistry created by Roberts and Clooney as they argue their way through their Daughters graduation and eventual claim to get married. Clearly, the main draw is Roberts and Clooney as the headline to bring people in, but the young lead cast is also good in this film. Kaitlyn Dever players the daughter, and Maxime Bouttier the soon-to-be husband from Bali. Both of them stand out decently in the wake of their veteran cast leads and add another comedic and romantic dimension to the story that is less jaded than the parents.

Despite the unique start to the film, the rest is pretty formulaic as far as rom-coms go but for this type of film, that works. The film isn’t going for any awards or trying to break any trends. The locations and shots are gorgeous, having been shot in Australia. It brought in 2 a-list veterans to do what they do best, and create a fun, romantic comedy that you lose yourself in for just under 2 hours. You will laugh, and some may cry but overall it’s just a throwback to a time when movies were just fun and didn’t have to blow up the world or push an agenda.

Ticket to Paradise hits theatres Oct 21st (today).
