Give me a break!
7 July 2002 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This movie literally took a steep nosedive from the moment the title sequence began. Not only was the film cheesy and unoriginal (after Turbulence 1, 2, and 3), but it seemed to try too hard. Plus, these people would never exist. There's this girl, who is snotty and a total bitch before takeoff. She picks on her supervisor and the fat guy who is also on board. She makes stupid comments that do her character no favors, and she presents herself as stupid. Then, all of a sudden, the plane gets struck by lightning and and then she's the wonder princess. Elisha Cuthbert (now on the hit TV show "24") does what she can with the amazingly awful script, but the whole movie is bound for a rough landing. Being instructed by a contoller on the ground, the girl miraculously lands the Boeing 727 by herself, all the while remaining calm and still having time to make jokes. The wonderful actor Joe Mantegna also stars in the film as the girls distant father. It's sad to see an actor of his magnitude sink to the level of this film, even though most of it took place at 35,000 feet. A complete waste of time, and unsettling after 9/11.
