Here's why we're all going to LOVE hit new comedy Ticket to Paradise
2023/07/05

When it comes to matters of the heart, would you trust your parents to know what's best for you? 

This is the theory that's hilariously unpacked in Ticket to Paradise, which sees the undisputed king and queen of rom-coms, George Clooney and Julia Roberts, reunite for the feel-good movie of the year. 

Taking on the roles of former spouses and squabbling parents, David and Georgia, the pair decide to hatch a scheme to get in the way of their lovestruck daughter Lily - played by rising star Kaitlyn Dever - marrying a man she's only just met.

On a mission to stop her from making (what they feel) is the same mistake they did by rushing down the aisle, the pair jet to Bali to try and stop the wedding.

Yet, they quickly realise that their plan isn't without hiccups, with the pair caught in several compromising positions while on their mission to 'save' their daughter from repeating their doomed path. 

Helmed by Ol Parker - the director and screenwriter behind Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again - and with a talented cast, stunning scenery and several laugh out loud moments, Ticket to Paradise is set to be this year's funniest flick. 

Here's why we love it and why you should book your tickets now. 

The return of familiar faces 

George and Julia are bringing back their undeniable on-screen chemistry. The pair are two of the biggest names in Hollywood and have enjoyed a firm friendship over the years, which always translates into movie magic. 

After six years apart, the duo have teamed up once again, with both admitting previously that they had envisioned each other as their co-star when first reading the script.  

Julia also revealed that Ticket to Paradise not only gave her a chance to reunite with her close friend, but also to mark her big return to rom-coms after a 20-year break. 

The Oscar-winning star had fallen in love with the genre but admitted that the 'level of writing' and 'madcap fun' she needed to see to get onboard 'didn't exist until this movie.' 

Actor-turned-director George was clearly in agreement, having made the rare move in recent years to step away from his work behind the camera and return to the screen.

The introduction of hot new talent 

If you haven't heard of Kaitlyn Dever by now then prepare for that to change, as this Golden Globe Award nominee is one to watch. 

While she may be sharing a screen with Hollywood heavyweights George and Julia, Kaitlyn is more than capable of holding her own with her pithy one-liners and charm. 

Her chemistry with on-screen fiancé Gede - played by Maxime Bouttier - is also worth noting and guaranteed to leave you feeling hot under the collar!

With the cast also including Hollywood darling Billie Lourd and heartthrob Lucas Bravo, Ticket to Paradise boasts an incredible line-up of talent.

Moments that will make you laugh out loud 

From fighting over being sat next to each other on the same plane, to ending up doing tequila shots and showing off their very embarrassing dance moves, Julia and George are sure to leave you in hysterics with their on-screen antics. 

Clever dialogue supports the pair's natural physical comedy, with George quipping at one point that his marriage was the 'worst 19 years of my life'. 

As Julia replies, 'We were only married for five,' he's quick to respond, 'I'm including the recovery.' 

It's also impossible not to laugh when George finds himself targeted by famously sweet-natured dolphins, with Julia taking great delight in applying a little too much pressure to his wound after he's bitten at sea.

A chance for pure escapism  

Whether you've managed to get away on holiday or not this year, it's impossible to deny that the stunning backdrops of Bali will leave you wanting to plan a trip to the tropics! 

What better way to unwind and enjoy some time with friends than watching Hollywood heavyweights battle it out in the midst of a tropical jungle?!

Combining gorgeous locations with a blend of heart-warming and funny moments, it's a rare chance to sit back, relax and enjoy pure escapism at the cinema.   

Ticket to Paradise may be about the sweet surprise of second chances, but we can guarantee you'll want to be first in line for the feelgood film of the year.
