Just when the world needs her most, Julia Roberts makes her triumphant return to the genre she reinvented in the ’90s – romantic comedy. In an ingenious casting, she will be reunited with her ocean 11 co-star George Clooney for ticket to paradise, out this October.
Entrance ticket to paradise depends on the enemies to lovers rom-com trope. The first follower are essentially two and a half minutes straight of Roberts and Clooney exchanging hateful, sexually charged banter. In other words, it’s already our favorite movie of the year. If you don’t find it sexy when someone is mean to you, you need to grow up and watch season 2 of Bridgeton.
Roberts and Clooney play a bitterly divorced couple who have had to marry in a hurry and must band together to save their daughter Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) from the same mistake. Lily is desperate to marry a man she just met on a post-graduation trip to Bali. Of course, hijinks ensue when Roberts and Clooney reluctantly travel to Bali together to prevent the wedding.
When Roberts tells a flight attendant at the beginning of the trailer that she can’t sit next to Clooney because they were previously married, Clooney adds, “The worst 19 years of my life.” Roberts clarifies that they were only married for five years, and without missing a beat, her always charming scene partner says dryly, “I’m counting the recovery.”
There’s pretty much no way this movie couldn’t be entertaining. Who among us wouldn’t love to watch Julia Roberts and George Clooney battle it out for two hours? The trailer also promises other classic rom-com elements: a stunning tropical setting, a pop soundtrack, and a drunken dance montage (wasted George Clooney with the Running Man – need we say more?).
Lucas Bravo from Emily in Paris Fame and the always hilarious Billie Lourd top it off Entrance ticket to paradise‘s supporting actor. Also, the film’s director, Ol Parker, is responsible for the cinematic masterpiece Mamma Mia! here we go again.
This is the visionary that gave us Cher as Meryl Streep’s mother, despite their age difference being just three years. And a really inappropriate performance of ABBA’s “When I Kissed the Teacher” that we are supposed to believe took place at the Oxford University graduation ceremony. Ghost Meryl duets with Amanda Seyfriend at baby christening! What were we talking about again?
Oh right. needless to say Entrance ticket to paradise is in good hands. It hits theaters on October 21st.
