ALL ABOARD! ROSIE'S FAMILY CRUISE (Shari Cookson). 91 minutes. Sunday (May 21), 2:30 pm. Isabel Bader. Rating: NN Rating: NN
There's a reason to dock yourself at this look at Rosie O'Donnell 's and her partner Kelli 's gay-and-lesbian-family-friendly cruise ship as it travels down the U.S. east coast. It's especially relevant now, when gay marriage is under attack again. Too bad the voyage is so dull.
After we learn about how several couples conceived their kids, sit in on an adoption seminar and yawn through innumerable showtunes performed in the ship's massive theatre, there's not much else to see.
The only conflict comes when the boat's approaching the Bahamas, and Rosie and Kelli learn there will be protestors. Sadly, even when O'Donnell takes to the mic, she's not very funny. Maybe becoming a parent has dulled her comedy. A scary thought.
