Two straight men take a Caribbean cruise on the U.S.S. Calypso, hoping to get lucky, only to discover that they accidentally booked an all-gay cruise instead... undoubtedly, wacky high jinks soon ensue. Specifically, one of them meets a beautiful ship member that he wants to win over, but she thinks he's gay (of course).
PROFANITY: 8 F-words, 3 GD's, 10 A-words, 1 S-word. Quite a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Lots of graphic sexual talk, some female nudity. VIOLENCE: None DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some drinking, drunkenness and dope smoking. ACTION: None COMEDY: Certainly not many laughs for a comedy.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
These are some pretty bad opinions, but they're actually a little better than I expected. I can't imagine anyone giving this movie a rating of "Fantastic" or even "Excellent," but some did. However, many rated it quite low.
I would say, for the average moviegoer, this is NOT a movie you are likely to enjoy enough to shell out twenty bucks in tickets and concessions.
I really have no idea what group of moviegoers are giving Boat Trip the higher ratings, so I can't help you discover if you might be one of them. All I can do is recommend that you catch a cheaper matinee if you take a chance and see this movie.
Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected) Very sexual and only occasionally funny. This is NOT a movie you'll want to rush out to see. Personally, I'm very glad that I get to see movies for free, because I wouldn't have wanted to waste my money seeing this mess. It does have a few funny scenes, but certainly not enough to recommend seeing it. Young teen males are about the only likely audience for this movie, because it has a lot of sexual jokes and some women in bikini's, but they probably won't like the gay scenes. The best I can do is suggest that it might be worth a rental, but only after its been out on video long enough to rent for a couple bucks or less.
Hoping to get his mind off his ex-girlfriend Felicia (Vivica A. Fox), heart-broken Jerry (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) decides to join his best friend Nick (Horatio Sanz) on a tropical singles cruise for a week of sun and possible romance. But when Jerry and Nick realize they've been accidentally booked on a gay cruise, all they can think of is jumping ship - that is, until Jerry falls head-over-heels for Gabriella (Roselyn Sanchez), a gorgeous dance instructor who, after a string of bad boyfriends, has given up on love. Hoping to get past Gabriella's stalwart defenses, Jerry pretends to be gay- but matters get complicated when both Jerry and Gabriella start to feel the heat of mutual attraction. And when Felicia unexpectedly appears on board hoping to win her ex-boyfriend back, Jerry is suddenly faced with the decision of a lifetime…
