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.

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

Light, flighty and just smart enough, Jet Lag isn't worth losing sleep over, but it is worth seeing.

June 27, 2003
The movie equivalent of one of those paperbacks bought to pass the time when your own flight has been delayed: It's distracting enough to keep your mind off the fantasy of throttling someone without adding any real weight to your carry-ons.

... succinct, smart and sweet.

Director Thompson and her two A-list stars take a grand holiday from their usual seriousness, exploring all of the possibilities offered by this situation with charm and style.

Who knew that Juliette Binoche and Jean Reno could be unlikable?

June 13, 2003
A peppy romantic trifle from France that rises above the mundane on the strength of its beautifully detailed lead performances.

Rose gives as good as she gets, and one of the film's exceedingly modest pleasures is watching how the director rescues this woman from stereotype and Félix's (and our) prejudice.

Excellent fluff français, leavened with charm, wit and smart observation about the way we love now.

It's a pleasure to encounter a confectionary love story in which a man and woman of age and experience discover feelings that youth, more and more, has a patent on in Hollywood.

Seen for what it is, the film is enjoyable, though nothing sticks in the mind when the lights come up.
