As in the “Some Like It Hot” model, the men pose as femmes to get the girl. Jerry chases Gabriela (Roselyn Sanchez), a ship dance instructor. Nick's prayers are answered when the boat runs across and rescues a Swedish bikini tanning team.
Not surprisingly, “Boat Trip” ends up with the straight men gaining a greater appreciation of the gay lifestyle.
Gooding, whose career clearly has fallen off the Hollywood map, prances around the boat in his hyped-up comic style and, during a cruise musical number, lip-synchs “I'm Coming Out” dressed as a Vegas showgirl. Roger Moore, as a self-described “hard-partying old queen,” shows up in a mildly amusing Bond-esque mode. Starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Horatio Sanz and Vivica A. Fox. Directed by Mort Nathan. Written by William Bigelow and Mort Nathan. Produced by Andrew Sugarman. An Artisan release. Comedy. Rated R for strong sexual content, language and some drug material. Running time: 93 min
