Storyline

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 cruiseliner, unaware the travel agent has just played a horrid trick on them in retaliation for Nick offending his secret gay lover. And that's the trick; it's a gay cruiseliner for gay men to meet and mingle. Slowly but surely, the two main characters begin to realize this and in turn get into a lot of humorous predicaments.

Too Incredible To Be Funny
6 December 2005 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

BOAT TRIP is the kind of movie that has a good premise but remains under developed . A couple of horny young men sign up for a sex cruise but since they've annoyed the travel agent he gets his revenge by putting them on a gay cruise . Be honest there's all types of laugh out loud opportunities with this kind of plot but for some unknown reason laughs are few and far between

No I take that back because the reason isn't unknown at all and is very obvious - There's a lack of credibility involved . The two protagonists Jerry and Nick are told by the travel agent that there's three girls for every boy , a ratio that would make The Beach Boys envious . So they go down to the harbour along with a bunch of well toned young men , walk around the cruise ship brag to each other what they're gonna be doing to all those hot chicks , visit the bar which is full of hunky young men who are not wearing much and only realise it's a gay cruise when Lloyd Faversham tells them . Considering Jerry and Nick were expecting a ship to have a 75% population of women it's impossible to believe they wouldn't have noticed something was up ( No jokes please )as soon as they set foot upon the ship . I know it's only a film but even so there's a distinct lack of credibility involved

The gags themselves are unfunny and predictable and as soon as Nick asks : " Do you know where I can get off ? " you know that the punchline is going to be " yes try The Hole In One " . I couldn't help thinking that much of the potential humour was toned down because the producers didn't want to be accused of homophobia so we've got an entirely daft movie that both gay and straight people will dislike . Mind you no doubt the cast and production team enjoyed working on the movie . They spend several weeks filming on a cruise ship in the Med and they get paid for it ! Some people have all the luck unlike the audience for BOAT TRIP
