Charming in its predictability, yet not without its pleasures. The leads share a very casual chemistry, an odd couple that refreshingly isn't at odds with each other.

Good acting makes us momentarily forget that we get enough of this stuff right here at home without having to import it for some reason.

Manages to surprise and absorb the viewer in ways that your typical 'meet cute' romance never would.

This modest soufflé of a romance rests securely on [Reno and Binoche's] shoulders.

In the realm of predictable rom-coms, this one has enough charm and humor to divert us for an hour and a half.

If Jet Lag were showing on an airplane, I'd jump out the window and take my chances with gravity.

The idea of gruff, scruffy Reno and the elegant- as-ever Binoche getting together is far too ridiculous to swallow even for a minute.

What makes Jet Lag almost work is the unexpected chemistry between the ethereal Binoche and the gravelly Reno.

...even at a running time of only 91-minutes, the film often feels substantially longer.

A romantic comedy that's as stale as yesterday's croissant.

All the usual meet-cute tropes are trotted out -- room service hassles, bed-sharing dilemmas -- but Reno and Binoche make a fine pair and the Parisian setting somehow makes it all seem fresher.

A movie so thin it borders on nonexistence.

It's perfectly good, light summer fare.

Jet Lag flies in as a very soft bird, but its feathers are pleasing.

A stagy romantic comedy that lacks an energetic story but is rescued by the talents of its two stars.
