"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."

"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."

Friendship and Laughter

"I saw "Two Tickets to Paradise" at a film festival in Hawaii - and I thought it was the best feature movie of the entire festival. It's a great story about the friendship of high school superstars coping with less than spectacular middle age lives. This movie makes you laugh so hard, you leave the theatre felling good and haunted with memories that make you smile for weeks to come. If there is a moral to this movie, it is the value of friendship throughout life. See it and feel good all over."
Great Movie for over thirty crowd

"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."
