Boat Trip (2003)



Critic Consensus: Boat Trip is a lame, juvenile farce that's heavy on stereotypes and desperate antics but short on brains and laughs.

Movie Info

Two guys looking for a respite from their bumpy romantic lives find themselves in the midst of a very confusing situation in this broad comedy. Jerry (Cuba Gooding Jr.) is a guy who thinks he's found the love of his life in Felicia (Vivica A. Fox), his beautiful longtime girlfriend. Jerry decides to propose to Felicia, and arranges for a hot-air balloon ride in order to create the ideal setting to pop the question. However, Felicia not only turns him down, she announces that she's leaving him for another man. Jerry sinks into a deep depression, until his best friend Nick (Horatio Sanz), who has been having his own romantic problems, suggests they take a vacation cruise on an ocean liner, forgetting their troubles while they make time with bikini-clad babes. Jerry is game, but after an angry misunderstanding with a travel agent, Nick and Jerry discover they've been booked on a tour specifically for gay men. Jerry and Nick are forced to pose as lovers to ward off the indefatigable advances of aging playboy Lloyd (Roger Moore), which cramps their style when the ship's captain rescues a boatload of buxom Swedish swimsuit models. Jerry's spirits rise when he meets Gabriella (Roselyn Sanchez), a beautiful dancer who is part of the ship's entertainment staff. Jerry, however, now has to walk a fine line between maintaining his cover and convincing Gabriella that despite outward appearances, he's not gay. Boat Trip was the first feature film from director Mort Nathan, best known for his work as a writer for television.

Cuba Gooding Jr. is the kind of guy who does ten minutes of shtick every time the little light in the fridge comes on.

This is a tasteless and tacky farce laced with cheap homophobic jokes and cringe-inducing stereotypes ...

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

The movie improves immeasurably if you visualize a looming iceberg in the corner of the frame.

Top Critic

This movie is so bland, I can't even bring myself to completely trash it with a one-star spike.

Top Critic

Flouncing and preening, [Gooding] works hard to sell the movie's penile, puerile jokes, his strain so evident that it borders on sad.

Top Critic

Boat Trip isn't all that funny, but it's consistent, at least, in its relentless pursuit of idiocy.

Had almost forgotten about this little travesty. It seems to think it is breaking new ground by telling us how normal gay people are. After making loads of gay jokes of course, which only a minute percent of are funny. Gooding Jr, should have his Oscar taken away.
