Ryan Weaver romances beautiful women before he kills them. Ryan is arrested, convicted, and is part of a Christmas Eve transfer of prisoners on a transcontinental 747 commercial flight. Other airlines at JFK may have holiday passengers waiting on stand-by, but this jumbo jet takes off with a lot of empty seats. Ryan and another prisoner overpower and kill their guards. The few civilian passengers are herded into a "pantry" on the plane and are not seen again until the end of the movie. Ryan eliminates the other prisoners and all the crew members except Teri Halloran. The remainder of the movie follows a "cat-and-mouse" game between Ryan and Teri on the 747. Written by

The toy store in the movie in reality is a bookstore on the Main Street in Clinton, New Jersey, USA. There is a toy store on Main Street but it is in an alley and director Robert Butler didn't like the exterior of the building. The bookstore's front window was decorated with toys for the week of filming. See more »

I dated a criminal once.
He owned a used car lot. They busted him for turning back the odometers.
How could you trust someone like that?
I figured I did the same thing when I told him I was 21.

A Perfect example of substituting a screenplay and supporting cast with SFX
When I watched the "Movie Magic" episode on the Discovery Channel, in wich they featured the SFX from "Turbulence", I thought to myself: "Wow, this movie's gonna rule!". But, when I finally had a chance to check it out, I screamed: "This dog sucks!". You know, since they were at it already, the producers should have considered substituting the writters with a Word Processor... infected with a virus. It couldn't be worse (e.g: Just before the action starts <30 long minutes into it>, there's a 5 minute struggle between a cop and a prisioner wich ends in a shoot out that breaches the plane's hull and start the turbulence. In the meantime, the cop's chief is just staring at the 2 guys, behaving like a hot dog.) And the civilian passengers (Who would stay in the same plane with arrested convicts, for God's sake!) are such bad actors, they all deserved to die a quick dead... and spare us.
