Two Tickets To Paradise - not what you think it will be
If you're looking for big budget Hollywood, this movie's not for you. If you're looking for angst ridden sad ending for the sake of sad ending - ditto.
However, if you want something that's fun, endearing, a little off kilter and ultimately redemptive - you've found he right movie.
I enjoyed the lack of formula and some strong emotional performances, inserted artfully in this potentially formulaic "on the road" genre. I enjoyed it because when you watched, it really wasn't formulaic at all, and Two Tix was surprisingly poignant delivering the (non- preachy but clear) messages on friendship, and manhood, marriage and family.
Kudos to DB, and though we didn't see a whole lot of her or like her a lot in this film, Moira still has it.
