Isn't it about time for Gooding, Jr. to give back his Oscar? Or at least fire his agent? In this pathetic attempt at comedy, he's Jerry, a lovesick guy distraught over a failed relationship. To the rescue comes his buddy Nick (Sanz), a loud-mouth skirt chaser who suggests a singles cruise. When Nick insults the travel agent, they're sent on a gay cruise, where Jerry falls for the ship's choreographer Gabrielle (Sanchez) and must pretend to be gay to win her. Yep, it's as crappy as it sounds. Gooding, Jr. tries hard, but he can't bail out this floater, which is aimed straight at the rocks of a cliche-ridden and spectacularly unfunny script and direction that wouldn't make the cut on a third-rate sitcom.
Deserves a Woof but I still like it littlesam1 at 2008-10-24 12:08:31
If any movie deserves a woof rating on here then Boat Trip is that movie. Its so bad that I really like it. I gave it three stars because I have watched it several times and have to laugh each time. It not well written. Its not directed well. The acting is way over the top. And its treatment of sterotypes is embarrassing. But I still get like it. I can't explain why.
