In the French version of the movie, Dolores Torres says to Viktor that she goes to Star Trek conventions dressed as Uhura. In France, the Star Trek series is not as well known as in America and it was thought that the character of Yeoman Rand was less well known than the principal crew of the starship. Five years later Zoe Saldana, who plays Torres, would appear as Uhura in Star Trek (2009) and its sequels. See more »

The Terminal is by far the worst Spielberg film so far. Not only the story is ridiculous based on a true story that has a solid political/legal base but Tom Hanks' portrait of this Western European man is also his worst work so far. Mr. Hanks - a good actor -being helped by the script and the Director portraits this man like a mentally challenge person, making this film extremely condescending towards Easter European people and foreigns in general. This is not a matter of language barrier or being in another country, is a matter of Mr. Hanks character's IQ. He speaks, moves, acts and reacts like a child or a grown man with a serious mental illness or simply like a stupid person, so the whole movie just doesn't work at all. Another problem is the Director wants us to believe that Mr. Hanks is an Easter European citizen only because he speaks with an accent; they should have made this movie with an unknown good foreign actor. On the other hand, the three characters that work at the airport and play poker to win stole objects are an African American, a Latino and an Indian man. If this is not racism, then what is this? Regarding the plot, it so unbelievable ridiculous that this movie can easy be science fiction. The true story on which this film is based on, it's quite different. It's a Hollywood obsession to change interesting stories to make then more "American," making this last word sounds like more "stupid." Just to make things even worst, the only female character in the film is a flight attendant portrayed nicely by Catherine Zeta Jones; but in this film the character is having a relationship with a rich married old man another stereotype for the "whore" flight attendant it's just too much. This is just a very bad movie that insults the viewers with condescending remarks over non-US characters and stereotypes.
