Movie Info

Two of the biggest stars of the French cinema bring their contrasting styles together in this lively romantic comedy. Rose (Juliette Binoche) is an emotional makeup artist who is hoping to get out of a bad relationship with her boyfriend, Sergio (Sergi Lopez), by leaving him in Paris and heading off to Mexico for a holiday. After losing her cell phone, Rose borrows one from Felix (Jean Reno), a somewhat stiff salesman with an interest in gourmet cooking, who is en route toMunich to attend a funeral. When both Rose and Felix find themselves grounded due to changes in flight scheduling and a transportation strike strands them at the airport, they end up sharing a room at a nearby hotel, where their contrasting personalities make the evening rough sledding for them both. As their unexpected stay wears on, will these opposites begin to attract?

Critic Reviews for Jet Lag

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (29)

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

September 20, 2003 | Rating: 4/5

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.

The script is definitely mediocrity mixed with complication.

August 15, 2003 | Rating: 1.5/4

A movie so thin it borders on nonexistence.

July 31, 2003 | Rating: 1.5/4

A piffle of a romantic comedy that wastes its stars.

July 17, 2003 | Rating: C

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

Audience Reviews for Jet Lag

Juliette Binoche and Jean Reno both shine in this cute film: Jet Lag. Juliette is a film star meets a fascinating man while both being stranded overnight at an airport. It is a lovely foreign film worth seeing.
