Jet Lag | 2003 | R | - 6.2.5

Jean Reno and Juliette Binoche star in this romantic comedy as two strangers -- and complete opposites personality-wise -- who meet at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris while planes are grounded due to a strike and bad weather. Also with Sergi López and Scali Delpeyrat. Directed by Danièle Thompson. In French with English subtitles. [1:31]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A pornographic movie plays on a TV set: we see a woman on her hands and knees, and a man thrusting from behind and hear the woman moaning (he's bare-chested and we see her bare legs). A man and a woman hug, he kisses her neck, she lies back on a massage table, he climbs on top of her, they kiss and are interrupted. A man and a woman kiss. A man and a woman lie in bed together (they're clothed). There is sexual tension: a man and a woman are saying goodbye and they appear to lean toward each other to kiss but do not. A woman lies nude in bed covered with a sheet but when she sits up a bit we see part of her bare breasts and nipples. A nude woman swims and we see her bare back, buttocks and legs when she climbs out of the pool. A man and a woman talk about sex and pretend to have orgasms. A man invites a woman to come to his hotel room (in a non-sexual context).

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A man pounds on a table a couple of times, one time breaking a glass that cuts his hand. A man grabs a woman, pulls her out of a taxi and yells at her. A man suffers from several anxiety attacks: he breathes heavily, holds his chest, begins to lose consciousness. A man lies on the floor of a bathroom, a woman opens the door and hits him on the head. A reference is made to spousal abuse. A woman talks about having been slapped as a child by her parents. A man talks about a woman's grandmother having died and that he's going to the funeral. A woman talks to her mother on the phone and it is suggested that she has taken a quantity of pills. A man spills salad oil and it splashes onto a woman. A woman urinates in a toilet (we hear the trickle).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
