A good romp
5 December 2002 | by (Nigeria) – See all my reviews

Like the first reviewer, I think this was a real fun film and I would echo that the best parts were the scenes dealing with airport security and airline staff. It shows well the all too common frustration when one remonstrates with personnel who want to treat you like cattle in a slaughter-house, and of course they have the upper hand and do not hesitate to use it. I don't think this will ever be an in-flight movie!

Sean Chapman overdoes the high-handed, arrogant banker a little but probably that was intentional, it made it hard to identify with him.

I would definitely watch this again.
