Ticket to Paradise trailer finds George Clooney and Julia Roberts meddling in martial affairs

by Natalie Kiser

Cast your morals aside and order a potent cocktail because George Clooney and Julia Roberts are meddling in marital affairs in the Ticket to Paradise trailer. Ol Parker directs as Clooney and Roberts reunite on the big screen as exes who find themselves on a shared mission to stop their lovestruck daughter from making the same mistake they once did. How presumptuous!

Filmed on location in Queensland, Australia, the Ticket to Paradise trailer also features Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart,  Dopesick) as the couple’s daughter, Lily. Meanwhile, Maxime Bouttier (Meet Me After Sunset, Serendipity) plays Lily’s fiance. The romantic comedy pairs two of Hollywood’s greatest actors for a laugh-out-loud island getaway that has them trading verbal snipes with one another for most of the film. How long will it take for them to realize that interfering with their daughter’s marriage is a grave mistake and that old flames can often burn again, given the right circumstances?
