Jet Lag



Critic Consensus: A light and fluffy romantic comedy for fans of Juliette Binoche and Jean Reno.

Movie Info

Directed by Danièle Thompson, this romantic comedy is set within the Charles de Gaulle airport, where businessman Felix (Jean Reno) and beautician Rose (Juliette Binoche) are stuck in transit due to an air traffic controller's strike and a computer failure, respectively. Rose, who is leaving the country in hopes of a vacation without her boyfriend, Sergio (Sergi Lopez), borrows Felix's phone after she accidentally drops her own into a toilet. A complicated relationship between the two of them establishes itself almost immediately, though they don't truly develop a rapport until after a romantic dinner at the airport hotel. As their planes get closer to leaving the ground, however, Rose and Felix find themselves wondering if they should go their separate ways after all.more

Critic Reviews for Jet Lag

All Critics (73) | Top Critics (35)

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

Orlando Sentinel
Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

The script is definitely mediocrity mixed with complication.

A movie so thin it borders on nonexistence.

A piffle of a romantic comedy that wastes its stars.

Denver Rocky Mountain News
Top Critic

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