Cuba Gooding Jr. and Haratio Sanz going on a gay cruise.
Matthew Edmundson
The comedy in this film wasn't really that great, the funny bits were mostly one liners and the plot wasn't too deep.
David Hassall
The premise to this movie sounded like it could be really funny: two straight guys on a cruise full of gay men.

There are not many comedies I can watch over and over, laughing out loud each time, but Boat Trip cracks me up every time I watch it. Boat Trip is about contrast and the contrast is what delivers the laughs. Cuba Gooding Jr's comedic timing is absolutely perfect, delivering punchlines both verbally and visually. His facial expressions and body movements add horsepower to the laughs. Horatio Sanz is the perfect complement to Cuba, adding straight and comedic volleys that extend the laugh sequences. Roselyn Sanchez has never looked sexier onscreen. She'll make your pixels SIZZLE!!!! Lin Shaye as Sonya the (tanning) Coach is hilarious. Vivica Fox played her part well. Roger Moore tried, but didn't quite mesh with the cast or the movie.

Boat Trip is a 94 minute stand-up comedy routine. It is outrageous on every level just like the best onstage comics. It definitely won't appeal to homophobic souls, but for everyone else who could care less about a person's sexual orientation, you will crack up.

The DVD at a 1.77:1 or 1.85:1 aspect ratio fills a widescreen TV and is sharp and enjoyable. The unrated version has boobs, lots of 'em, and a fair amount of F-bombs, but what would you expect? As apparent from the other reviews you'll either love or hate this movie. I friggin' love it.

Geez I cant believe some of you people. Whah! Boo Hoo! This offended me. So it made fun of gays. Most other comedies make fun of the general population. A million movies make fun of you everyday run of the mill Joe Schmoe and its not offensive. So why cant you people just loosen up a bit, stop crying and take the movie for face value and stop reading too much into it. No I am not a racist and no I do not hate people who live alternate lifestyles but you people screaming this offends me and that offends me is what is wrong with this country today. Life in general is not fair to every single human on earth at one time or another so get over it already and stop making it more miserable for the ones who dont gripe and complain all the time. Its a movie and a good one if you can allow yourself to watch a movie while taking it with a grain of salt.

Well, a movie that shamelessly plays into every conceivable gay stereotype and cliche has got to be annoying, even offensive, doesn't it? That was my first impression when I started watching BOAT TRIP, but as the film moved along, and meandered through a bad script and over-the-top slapstick physical comedy, I found myself chuckling, then, of all things, actually laughing. It became apparent that BOAT TRIP never, ever, had any intention of taking itself seriously, so why the heck should the viewer?

The plot is lame, but still entertaining: Jerry (Cuba Gooding Jr.), distraught over being dumped by his girlfriend, and his pal, Nick (Horatio Sanz), decide to "score" by booking a cruise. Problem is, it's a gay cruise--much to the shock and horror of the two buds. And of course, every conceivable gay stereotype is then trotted out for the viewer; some of it bombs, some of it (the gay poker players) is downright funny. And then Jerry finds himself falling in love with the only woman (at the time) on the ship, dance instructor Gabriella (played by a wonderfully hot Roselyn Sanchez). Problem is, Gabriella is fed up with hetero men, and longs to seduce a gay man, so Jerry must pretend to be gay (leading to even more absurdity, yet Gooding manages to pull the zaniness off).

Gooding and Sanchez do well with what they have to work with, while Sanz is an annoying John Belushi wannabe. Other cast members include a very creepy Roger Moore, and sensational Playboy playmate Victoria Silverstedt. Will Ferrell even makes a brief, over-the-top appearance. No, BOAT TRIP is probably a movie I won't take the time to watch again, but it has its fluid, laughable moments. Hey, how can a film featuring the Swedish Suntanning Team be a dud?

When it comes to Gay/Lesbian films the depiction is stereotypical, stale and generally inappropriately comical. This film does have many of those elements, but, to a thinking audience it provides much more showing the variety in the Gay community shocking the straight characters with the reality of it. Jerry [(Cuba Gooding Jr.) after losing his girlfriend in embarrassing situation] and his friend [(Horatio Sanz) a born to lose loser] find themselves on a Gay cruise because of a rude run in with a travel agent due to the friend's behavior. A lot of names in this one (Richard Roundtree, Vivica Fox, Roger Moore, etc). When all seems lost the duo embark on their own journeys finding growth and surprisingly romance. Though both are straight they quickly learn that Gays come in all shapes and sizes as well as all careers learning tolerance and acceptance of diversity. Perhaps had we not "forgotten" what we had once known the world would not be so overly populated today. I think the "R" rating was poorly selected probably because of the "gay" thing, PG-13 or NC-17 would have sufficed. Still watch it before you show it to younger audiences, probably you're likely to be a little confused too, Much of thee humor is nonsense, but, still fun. The film does have a lot of special features, but, no trailer. Mostly the cast goofing off and singing. It is not subtitled in English (only Spanish) but is closed captioned.
