Factually wrong
31 July 2004 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

The flight in question originated in Toronto, not New York. Why is that so difficult to handle. This is a movie that tries to present a logical argument to bolster a premise. Yet it deliberately falsifies a key fact. So how can you believe anything else in the film? Why could the principals not have taken a connecting flight to Toronto. Contrary to Hollywood myth, Toronto does have an airport into which most of the world's major airlines have flights. The airport even has indoor plumbing! Even after that outrageous and unnecessary "poetic licence" the film is weak with mediocre acting and mundane production values. Obviously a low budget piece of work. Angela Lansbury was a divinely inspired wrong choice for the female star.
