Storyline

Mark, McGriff and Jason are three high school buddies whose glory days are long gone and are still stuck in their small Pennsylvania hometown. To break free and escape their much too ordinary lives, they embark on a cross-country road trip to the College Football Championship Bowl. The journey takes them through hilarious twists and turns, boozing and misbehaving every step of the way. Throughout the wild adventure, they discover the most important thing in this crazy, uncertain world is friendship. Written by D.B. Sweeney

Two Tickets To Paradise - not what you think it will be
8 December 2011 | by (Birmingham, AL) – See all my reviews

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.
