A frenetically unfunny and charmless movie.

There certainly is a lot of talent involved in Club Paradise... But most often, the level of humor is rather like that of those entertainments put on by summer campers for their own amusement.

This is a case where the actors are only as good as the script, which isn`t saying much. It`s not long into Club Paradise when you may feel the urge to get out.

The whole, crowded thing begins to resemble a low-brow Nashville.

Funny cast, bad movie.

Another pointless Robin Williams vehicle that feels like an overlong and rather weak sitcom witha parade of uninteresting guest stars. Dull.

Yes, this movie has a ton of great stars, but what're they doing in this movie? Not much. The story is predictable and sometimes boring. Overall,… More

A couple of funny moments, but it's real hit or miss. I will however be adding "drug crazed nipple factory" to my vocabulary.
