  1. If this rings distant Laurel-and-Hardy, or even Crosby-and-Hope bells, it's on purpose. Gooding's and Sanz's performances are almost a tribute to vaudeville-influenced two-guy comedy.

    Has an agreeable air of anything-goes vulgarity, which is so transcendentally idiotic that it's impossible to tell whether the film is a brilliant, deadpan parody of raunchy lowbrow farces from the '70s and '80s, or one of the stupidest, most regressive films ever made. Or, more likely, it's a little of both.

    The only thing a movie this unrefined needs is a vaudevillian in baggy pants and someone hawking peanuts in the aisle.
  4. Cuba Gooding Jr. can just return his "Jerry Maguire" Oscar right now. He has no excuse for making Boat Trip, a perniciously unfunny comedy.
  5. 20
    Cuba Gooding Jr.'s unrelenting energy can be galvanic in good films, but in lesser efforts it reeks of frenzied futility.
  6. 12
    Not that the film is outrageous. That would be asking too much. It is dim-witted, unfunny, too shallow to be offensive.
  7. 0
    The movie improves immeasurably if you visualize a looming iceberg in the corner of the frame.

    "A sexy, uninhibited romantic comedy about following your heart?no matter where it leads you." Here's "Boat Trip" instead. Again I "A sexy, uninhibited romantic comedy about following your heart?no matter where it leads you." Here's "Boat Trip" instead. Again I scratch my head - "Gosford Park" gets 5.5, "Boat Trip" 7.4. I hate to be a snob, but come on, people! There's a whole world of wonders out there in cinema, and here you are gawping at Cuba Gooding Jr (find a good script, for God's sake, you're a talented boy) blank-eye his way through one of the very stupidest films of the decade, one which seems to have aspirations toward nonchalant homophobia, yet doesn't even have the cojones to be properly offensive. The only thing it has going for it is Roger Moore making the best of a bad situation - but even Sir Rog isn't enough to save a "sinking ship". Ho, and indeed, ho. I hope that's enough explanation for the pleasant-sounding Marcos R. - it's an affront to my dignity and my family. Look, just do something else instead, okay? Expand

    Cuba Gooding Jr. deserves to be stripped of his Oscar for this incompetent mess.
