In "Ticket To Ride," George Clooney and Julia Roberts team up as executives who find themselves on a shared mission: to stop their lovestruct daughter from making the same mistake they once made. (Gary Reber)

Special features include four featurettes: "Return Of The Dynamic Duo" (HD 04:36), "Destinatio Wedding" (HD 03:38), "Production In Paradise" (HD 03:44) and "Keep A Straight Face" (HD 92:35), upfront previews and a Movies Anywhere digital copy.

The 2.39:1 1080p picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, was photographed digitally in anamorphic Panavision® using Panavision cameras and sourced from a 4K master Digital Intermediate format. The Bali setting and the picture is vivid throughout though a bit digital in image quality. The color palette is nicely saturated with bright hues that light up the screen. The imagery is natural throughout with earthy tones. Flesh tones are perfectly natural. Contrast is excellent with natural black levels, revealing shadow delineation and bright whites. There are few darker segments and mostly bright sunny environments The picture is sharp and clean with excellent resolution. Facial features are revealing of skin pores and lines, and hair and beard stubble. Clothing is revealing of fabrics and the natural island environment and textures are well captured. This is a colorful and bright picture and the Bali setting is beautiful. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused with a engaging atmospheric backdrop which includes a heavy rain downpour and thunder. The wedding brings together a large island family and their chatter. Sound effects are subdue with atmospherics the stronger element, providing enveloping subtle surround. The music can be very aggressive in the four surround channels beyond its wide soundstage. Dialogue is mostly ADR and wanting in spatial integration. Overall, this is a pleasing holosonic® soundtrack. (Gary Reber)
