Light and brainless way to spend 90 minutes
10 November 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Provided your belief is suspended about 60,000 feet above sea level (in-joke) this is a brainless, harmless way to spend 90 minutes. It isn't great science so don't expect too much.

Some of the actors are really quite good and it is fun to see them out of their normal milieu. Bradley Whitford is a smooth, skilled, understated actor with just enough quirks to make him always interesting. John Billingsley is always delightful although it would be nice to see him stretch outside his typecast and nearly trademarked nerdiness.

Corbett is quite competent but not in Billingsley's or Whitford's class. The other leads are jobbing actors, good enough, but without the high skill level to make something interesting from their cardboard characters.

Keep your belief well suspended and don't be too critical of the science and this is a way to spend 90 minutes of a boring, rainy day.

Anyway Billingsley's always fun to watch with his weird mannerisms.
