The box office performance of romantic comedies has not been very impressive. However, Julia Roberts and George Clooney are well-known figures that draw crowds. The movie Ticket To Paradise performed better than similar movies like “Last Christmas,” “The Lost City,” and “Crazy Rich Asians” at the box office.
Ticket to Paradise combines a couple of Hollywood megastars who are reconnecting whose charisma lights up the screen, a scenic setting that offers a stream of captivating visuals, and a pleasant, albeit ordinary, tale.
About Ticket To Paradise
While it lasts, a lighthearted, delightful romantic comedy directed and co-written by Ol Parker.
Ticket to Paradise offers little that will likely stick in our brains for the rest of our lives because it is overstuffed with clichés and shallow pleasures. The presence of George Clooney and Julia Roberts, who haven’t worked together in six years, helps the movie overcome its predictable plot and deliver a near-full complement of fun, frolic, and romance.
Ticket To Paradise Story
In the movie, one of the younger characters refers to Clooney’s dance moves as “dinosaur moves.” That is obviously overstating things. Yes, the movie does have an old-fashioned feel to it, but in a positive, lively way. It isn’t just the occasional hip-swinging; it also has a general air of back-patting camaraderie.
Naturally, it takes a lot of local arak and an impromptu game of ping-pong, which is based on a drinking contest David and Georgia used to participate in, to get the two leads in the mood to go back in time. They put up some extra effort in doing it.

Architect David Cotton (Clooney) and art dealer Georgia Cotton (Roberts) have been divorced for twenty years when we first meet them. They have not only been apart for so long, but they also find it difficult to look at one another. At their daughter’s graduation, they reunite after a long absence, but they don’t appear to be ready to put the past behind them.
When they find out that their only child Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) is getting married to a man she just met on the island she is vacationing with all-weather friend Wren Butler, the divorced couple boards a flight to Bali together (Billie Lourd). The woman, a recent law graduate, is prepared to abandon her profession even before it has started.
