George Clooney is back with Julia Roberts in this Bali-set comedy, Ticket to Paradise. Directed by Ol Parker ( Mama Mia! Here We Go Again!), this hysterical “rom-com” sees a family adventure set foot in Bali on a tropical vacation. We were invited to a special screening for this fun, tropical movie.

Ticket to Paradise is a  love-at-first-sight romantic flick, captivating audiences in a predictable way. Georgia and David Cotton, hysterical divorced parents, see their daughter, Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) and her best friend, Wren (Billie Lourd), graduate college and head off on a summer trip to Bali. It’s here, while on vacation, Lily finds romance with a Bali-native seaweed farmer named Gede (Maxime Bouttier), and the two decide to get married within days of meeting. 

Being divorced parents, Georgia and David are not on board with this potential recipe for disaster and fly straight out of Chicago to Bali. Thing is, they want nothing to do with each other. What happens? They’re seated right next to each other on the plane. It can’t get any worse for the two, can it? Turns out, Georgia’s new boyfriend, Paul (Lucas Bravo) is the pilot. Georgia and David put aside their two differences to focus on one thing, their daughter’s wedding… primarily to sabotage it, so Lily’s marriage doesn’t end up like theirs. The witty charisma of both Clooney and Roberts make this mess of a movie entertaining and bearable to watch. Without these two specifically, the movie is a mess and a predictable romantic flick. 

ticket to paradiseTicket to Paradise does provide a nice message – true love comes at all costs, even when couples appear to have fallen out of love. 

Ticket to Paradise is the escapism movie audiences need and want, but the audiences are here for George Clooney and Julia Roberts.  It’s pure fun, hysterical and led by the perfect duo in Hollywood in Clooney and Roberts. Kaitlyn Dever and Billie Lourd, in their roles respectfully, are the perfect best friend duo that help deliver the fun. Lourd is mostly the comedic sidekick, but at times, the supportive best friend we wish we had. The title is everything audiences can ask for, a ticket to paradise.

Aside from the lackluster plot and predictable twists, Ticket to Paradise provides audiences a good time and just laugh out loud comedy, sadistic humor and entertainment for the entire movie. It’s clear that movie is not for seriousness or the plot, but rather just providing audiences a good time and a good laugh, and it delivers on all levels of fun.

Ticket to Paradise is the reunion movie audiences need, and in theaters today, October 21. Will you see this fun rom-com? Tell us in the comments below or on social media!
