Ticket to Paradise (2022) Film Review

Georgia (Julia Roberts) and David (George Clooney) were married for a while a long time ago, and now hate each other. However, when their daughter, Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) falls in love with a seaweed farmer, Gede (Maxime Bouttier) in Bali and decides to marry him and live there, they come together to try to change her mind.

This has the feel of an old school (think 80s/90s old school) rom com, but not. It just doesn’t quite work. It’s beautiful – the scenery is stunning and the water… wow – but that wasn’t enough. I don’t know if it’s that a film like this doesn’t work as well now as it did back in the day. I suspect that a lot of people will love it. I think it’s just fine.
