Jerry and Nick are two best buddies whose love lives have hit rock bottom, Jerry's especially, having just vomited all over his fiancée on a hot air balloon trip prior to proposing to her. To escape their troubles and find women, they book a trip on-board a cruiseliner, unaware the travel agent has just played a horrid trick on them in retaliation for Nick offending his secret gay lover. And that's the trick; it's a gay cruiseliner for gay men to meet and mingle. Slowly but surely, the two main characters begin to realize this and in turn get into a lot of humorous predicaments.Written by

I picked this one up (the DVD version) totally on impulse the other night, not having a clue as to what it would really be like. The title, cover design and descriptive blurb on the back of the DVD would indicate something quite different than a couple of guys who accidentally wind up on a cruise for gay men.
But no matter, as the film turned out to be a "guilty pleasure" sort of comedy. In that respect it's not unlike "Deuce Bigalow, Male Gigolo", or some of the more risqué Benny Hill skits: sure it's stupid, vulgar and corny, but sometimes exactly those kinds of comedies can fill a comedy niche with certain viewers.
Most of the humor IS combination corny/vulgar - with some of it venturing into the gross-out variety. But, I did laugh out loud more than once, and at least found myself chuckling throughout most of it. The scenery is great - I mean, you've got the Swedish suntanning team prancing around in bikinis, providing proof that Swedes aren't all a bunch of square-heads afterall. (Victoria Silvstedt, who really is from Sweden, is quite beautiful, BTW). In addition, there are some picturesque scenes of a Mediterranean coastal town where the cruise ship makes a port visit. The cruise-ship set - created on a soundstage in Cologne, Germany, believe it or not - is quite well done (I was going to say "gorgeous", but since I'm straight, I guess I shouldn't use that word).
Roger Moore co-stars, and I wasn't shocked or disappointed or disgusted (as some other commenters appear to have been) to see the great former James Bond, 007 make an appearance in the film, playing a double-oh-gay, double-okay sort of old poof. He actually has some pretty funny lines in the film, especially at the end when they are preparing to sky-dive.
The other actors - Cuba Gooding Jr., Horatio Sanz, Roselyn Sanchez, et al - were certainly more than adequate to convey the whole silly sex-farce comedy of the film.
So, I would have to recommend it as worth seeing - the caveat being that it's probably intended more for adults, and for those times when you want a light-hearted, zany, not mean-spirited sex-farce sort of comedy. (You'll never look at Roger Moore in a James Bond film the same way again, I guarantee it!).
