Not unlike Bringing Down the House, Boat Trip is ultimately more offensive in theory than in execution. This 93-minute sitcom features Cuba Gooding Jr. as a professional chump who incurs the wrath of a travel agent and accidentally books himself and his best friend, Nick (Horatio Sanz), aboard a gay cruise. Every queen comes equipped with his own double entendre, most notably ex-007 Roger Moore as the swishy Lloyd (when referring to the boys on the golf course, he mentions that some of them “swing some very large clubs”) and the travel agent played by Will Farrell, who retaliates against Nick and Jerry because they called “his little pecker a little pecker.” Things take a delirious turn for the Porky’s when a group of Swedish women accidentally find themselves stranded aboard the cruise—they tease the portly Nick with their Nordic bazongas before he accidentally performs cunnilingus on their manly team captain, who gives a mean blow job to a baseball bat. But this crude diversion lasts for all of five minutes before director Mort Nathan resumes winking at his audience with penis ice sculptures, bananas and endless cum references. While Nick is negotiating his homophobia (and therefore latent homosexuality, of course), Jerry must figure out how to tell Gabriela (Roselyn Sanchez) that he’s not gay. Coming-out stories don’t come anymore selfish than this. As for the three or four endings, none are as pathetic as watching Gooding putting another nail in his career coffin.
