    I actually got a few kicks out of this, more then I should have actually.

    *** This review may contain spoilers ***

    Credit IMDb for the plot write up.

    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 cruise-liner,
    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 cruise-liner 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.

    I'm not saying Boat Trip is a successful movie, because it's not. It
    too often goes for the cheap humor, and forced laughs. But I did enjoy
    moments from this movie, a lot more than I expected. Cuba tries really
    hard to make the movie better than it should be, and often succeeds. It
    also helps he has a capable supporting cast around him. Boat Trip ranks
    around the average rating territory, and it's nowhere near as bad as
    people claim it to be. Funniest scene is when Sanz goes to make-out
    with a girl, but gets Shaye|The Gym Teacher| instead

    Performances. Cuba Gooding does remarkably well for the task he is
    given. Some of his actions when he's drunk are a bit over the top, but
    he does pretty well with the limited material. Horatio Sanz is funny
    and annoying at the same time. He works well with Cuba, and did his job
    well for the most part. Roselyn Sanchez is gorgeous to look at, while
    being charismatic as well. I quite liked her. Her chemistry with Cuba
    seemed natural too. Vivica A. Fox plays the typical know it all
    girlfriend without much substance. Maurice Godin is OK as the comical
    Gay Man. Roger Moore, Lin Shaye embarrass themselves. While Will
    Ferrell's cameo is rather silly.

    Bottom line. It's not as bad as people make it out to be. I laughed on
    several occasions. Cheap, vulgar, but an easy watch, if rather average.
    Worth a look on a slow-moving day.
