Just the Ticket

"Weak"

Just the Ticket Review


Hey, next Friday night, why not try a 2-hour tragicomedy about the wild and wacky world of ticket scalping? With Andy Garcia and Andie MacDowell!? Yow. "Ill-advised" is certainly a term that comes to mind. But Just the Ticket is basically humorless and so overly contrived (electronics saleswoman really wants to have her own restaurant) that it's overall just a waste of time for everyone involved. Even cameos from the likes of Joe Frazier can't elevate this film above a one-note joke.
