Jet Lag is sort of a grown-up version of Before Sunrise... The difference between the two films is sort of depressing.

A talky French romantic comedy that fails to trade in on the innate charisma of its two leads, Juliette Binoche and Jean Reno.

Director Daniele Thompson and her son/ co-screenwriter Christopher Thompson have trouble finding a comfortable balance between Hollywood homage and anti-Hollywood (as in French-intimate) comedy.

An alarmingly unfunny French comedy where the two main characters are constantly yakking on a cell phone at an airport.

This is the kind of movie that they show on planes -- white noise that lulls you to sleep.

A piffle of a romantic comedy that wastes its stars.

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

Watching an actor perform with his cell phone is about as interesting as staring at your dinner companion jabbering on his. It's rude, and aesthetically unsatisfying.

All the snappy dialogue in the world can't rescue this tried-and-true story.

A trifle that feels as if it's been trifled with.

Jet Lag lives up to its title by landing in the middle of a tired romantic comedy.

There's little chemistry between the stars, Juliette Binoche and Jean Reno, and even less conviction in the roles they're assigned.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

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

Despite its superior actors and performances, it's an utterly unsurprising romantic comedy.

A slight, wispy confection that never manages to take wing.

Jet Lag is a time-waster that might be diversionary on a dull cross-Atlantic flight -- but only in the absence of alternatives.
