HASH(0xa2ad4024) out of 5 stars A Wonderful Film May 23 2008
By Neil G. Giuntoli - Published on
Format: DVD
This is a gem of a film, directed and written with heart and truth, at times it brought tears to my eyes, and in the next scene, made me laugh, as I have done much the same as the characters so deftly drawn by D.B. Sweeney. Anytime, an actor can take both sides of the camera, and craft a film so entertaining and rich, this is a film and director to be noted.
Though the film concentrates on the three buddie's embraked on a life changing road trip, it is also noteworthy for the fact, that finally a director has given the veteran actor John McGinley the starring role he has so richly deserved after many many films. John's performance is bravura, going from alpha male bravado to being absolutely cratered as he realizes what is important in life, which is this: the friends we keep are the "family" we lean on. That is a universal theme that bears truth. Five Stars, you won't be disappointed.

HASH(0xa34f4f54) out of 5 stars Scrumptrulescent! July 30 2008

Not only is DB Sweeney a Great Actor, Great American (he sent me coffee while I was in Iraq), OK guitar player, but he has done an awesome job directing this one. I want to thank him for coming to Iraq to show us this movie. I pre-ordered it from Amazon, received it on July 22nd here in Iraq and have watched it three times already. I have caught something new each time I watched it. We were laughing through some of the parts I missed the first time, then I watched it with headphones the second time.
It has a true story line, not a Hollywood story line and great music (well except when he butchered Blue Collar Man, a Styx song).
I highly recommend this movie, it will be one I watch again and again.

HASH(0xa1dba270) out of 5 stars An honest flick without the Hollywood pink frosting... Jan. 6 2010
By stratasphere - Published on
Format: DVD
I've loved D.B. Sweeney since "The Cutting Edge" for his totally heart-felt and down-to-earth style of acting. What this movie does, is take that style to the next level. The stuff we talk about with the friends we've known forever may sound pretty strange, stupid or boring to anyone else. "Two Tickets To Paradise" captures so poignantly just how all of these seemingly insignificant conversations and experiences weave together for each of us, creating not simply histories that we share with each other as old friends, but the compass by which we orient ourselves. Sweeney has written the dialogue about these three old friends in an honest, funny, and at times unbearably sad tone, reminding us of how we all can and do get stuck in our lives, to one degree or another, and how, invariably, our old friends become the yardstick, and maybe the impetus for us moving ourselves a few feet forward. All three main characters, as well as the minor characters give very well-modulated over-acting, no corny monologues, and a good, but not yucky-sweet,Hollywood ending. It's almost as if Sweeney is reminding us that we can give up cinematic junk food by experiencing films that deeply move us with simple reality instead of with the fantastic and improbable. Too bad that Moira Kelly didn't have a bigger part, since she and Sweeney have such natural chemistry together. Good tunes. Hope he makes more movies like this.

HASH(0xa1fab090) out of 5 stars Great Movie for over thirty crowd May 7 2008
By Derek J. Taylor - Published on
Format: DVD
I watched this movie in Kuwait with D. B. Sweeney. It was a very funny and touching movie. It hits home the feelings a lot of older men have, how things didn't work out like we thought they would when we were in High School. Some drug use, a lot of alcohol, a real nice car and a real nice bike. Did I mention the stripper? Anyway, I really enjoyed this movie and was glad that D.B. brought it to us in Kuwait.

HASH(0xa1f99ccc) out of 5 stars A Coming Of Age Optimistic Film Dec 21 2014
By Desertman84 - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
After their team up in the 1992 sports romantic comedy The Cutting Edge,the reunion between D.B.Sweeney and Moira Kelly finally happened after 14 years in this movie entitled,"Two Tickets To Paradise". The story revolves around three life-long friends in their 40's that are in search for themselves as they face problems of their own.

Mark has developed a serious gambling problem that is beginning to affect his marriage.McGriff cannot let go of his dream of becoming a famous rock star despite having a supportive and beautiful but unfaithful spouse.Finally,Jason refuse to mature and still lives with his parents.This made them go to a trip together and try in search for life answers that will help them find answers in life.

This film written and directed by D.B. Sweeney was basically had great moments but never got into a satisfying whole.Too bad that D.B. Sweeney's reunion with Moira Kelly did not result into a good film similar to The Cutting Edge.They barely had scenes together and Moira was barely a presence.Nevertheless,it will still manage to provide good entertainment especially to those who love coming of age films.Added to that,it will be appreciated by those who are experiencing difficulties and want to see a movie that will give them hope amidst life's difficulties.
