Movie Info

Gary Starke (Andy Garcia) was an orphan living on the streets at 13 who grew up to preside over a crew of street hustlers as the grand master of ticket scalpers. Charming, savvy, and honorable, Gary seems beloved by everyone until Linda (Andie MacDowell), the love of his life, dumps him. Tired of Gary's unreliability after eight years, Linda takes a scholarship to the Cordon Bleu in Paris to fulfill her dream of becoming a master chef. Gary, in a tailspin, is determined to win Linda back.

Chaming...the leads are splendid

An offbeat drama about miracles and love.

You need more than a good idea and one colorful character to make an engaging, entertaining movie.

Not only do the one-liners fall flat, so do the straight-faced lines in general--a sure death knell for a film as talky as this one.

Audience Reviews for Just the Ticket

Although filled with recognizable names and faces, and a unique premise (ticket scalper makes good ... you don't see that every day), this one is simply death by formula: you see everything coming from a mile away. And so its no great shakes when it finally arrives. Wait until you've nothing better to do.

Another surprising film I've seen lately. You've probably never heard of this one: A ticket scalper (Andy Garcia) going nowhere in life figures he can turn his life around and win back his girlfriend by nabbing tickets to the Pope's address at Yankee Stadium. Yeah, I know. Still, give this one a chance, and you won't regret it. There's a freshness that is usually completely absent in most romantic comedies, ruined in part by an unbelievably bland MacDowell. Kudos to Garcia, though - you can't help but empathize and symapthize with his character. I mean, everybody wants proof that they exist. :)
