First Glance: “Ticket to Paradise”

The terrific trio of George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Kaitlyn Dever drive the upcoming feature “Ticket to Paradise”. Ol Parker directs and co-writes this romantic(ish) comedy from Universal Pictures. The film reunites Clooney and Roberts who worked together in two “Oceans” movies and “Money Monster”. The first trailer manages to be both fun and a tad cringy. But for me it’s worth seeing just for star power alone.

Clooney and Roberts play a divorced couple who are brought back together when their daughter Lily (Dever) announces her sudden engagement to a young man from Bali. Fearing she’s repeating a mistake they made, her cynical parents reluctantly set aside their bitterness towards each other and join forces to stop their daughter’s plans. Silly and cheesy hijinks ensue. Not sure exactly how to feel about this one. But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that it looks kinda fun.

“Ticket to Paradise” lands in theaters October 21st. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. This one was pretty good. Not great. I can still get entertainment out of it. It’s a shame that Eddie Money died and can’t sing it anymore.

  2. Both Clooney and Roberts have natural comedic talent. I like the woman who plays their daughter. Great location, the material is not to vicious with the exes sniping at each other. I’ll see it when it comes to DVD.

  3. I saw it earlier today on YouTube TV and… I think it does look fun. This might be something my mom would enjoy. Plus, you can’t hate on George and Julia doing some old school dance moves.
