Entertainment Weekly
It's a pleasure to encounter a confectionary love story in which a man and woman of age and experience discover feelings that youth, more and more, has a patent on in Hollywood.
Chicago Tribune
Slender but surprisingly smart and pleasing.
For those who have a penchant for talky subtitled romantic comedies, this one has its charms, but is probably more worth seeking out once it's on video than during its (probably short) theatrical life.
Stars Juliette Binoche and Jean Reno give Jet Lag everything they've got. Too bad the movie doesn't better reward their effort.
Chicago Sun-Times
Jet Lag is sort of a grown-up version of "Before Sunrise"...The difference between the two films is sort of depressing.
This is the kind of movie that they show on planes -- white noise that lulls you to sleep.
A time-waster that might be diversionary on a dull cross-Atlantic flight -- but only in the absence of alternatives.
Wall Street Journal
The perverse fascination of Jet Lag is watching two superb actors struggle with material that doesn't suit them.
As a credible love story, though, the film never leaves the runway. If you're a fan of these actors, you may want to look up Jet Lag when it comes out on video, or catch it on an Air France flight while flirting with the passenger in the next seat.
Charlotte Observer
sSo pleasingly forgettable that I spent most of the movie mentally casting American actors for the inevitable remake.
New York Daily News
Who knew that Juliette Binoche and Jean Reno could be unlikable? And yet, there they are, grating on each other's nerves (and ours) as strandees at Charles De Gaulle airport.
