Jerry and Nick are two best buddies whose love lives have hit rock bottom, Jerry's especially, having just vomited all over his fiancée on a hot air balloon trip prior to proposing to her. To escape their troubles and find women, they book a trip on board a cruise-liner, unaware the travel agent has just played a horrid trick on them in retaliation for Nick offending his secret gay lover.

Boat Trip is one of the few movies I have seen in a while that offers something fresh and original. Yes it has the typical "gay" jokes, but no, the movie doesn't center on gay bashing or glorifying. It explores the subject of sexuality as just an everyday occurance and makes fun of both hetero and homosexuality. The Swedish Tanning team is a great example of reminding men what it means to be hetero. Roger Moore plays more than just a bit part in the movie, and when he is on screen, he is absolutely funny. Horatio Sanz is, in my opinion, one of the least recognized and most underutilized funny men of our time. His actions and timings always make each scene better than the last. Cuba Gooding, Jr. is excellent or course. His acting in the film is very much different than one might expect and creates another, more human, feeling to the film. Roselyn Sanchez is absolutely stunning and delivers a solid performance.
Boat Trip is not a serious film, and it is not supposed to be. I can assure you that if you are interested in seeing a surprising good and funny film, watch Boat Trip.
