After dropping her son off at the bus stop, the doting mum and high school science teacher, Jessica Martin, is kidnapped at gunpoint, and thrown in an unknown attic with only a nearly unusable phone. As her world turns upside down in an instant, the desperate mother manages to jury-rig the device and connects with the cell phone of the young college student, Ryan. Now, Jessica's life is literally in Ryan's hands--and as the ruthless abductors threaten to kill her--Ryan has to act fast to rescue the woman on the other end of the line. However, with a dying battery, how can Ryan save Jessica when this could be her last phone call?Written by
At the kidnappers' house, the New Line Cinema movie Final Destination 2 (2003) is playing on the television. It also makes numerous references to the series, such as the truck crashing into Ryan's car (using the same sound effects) and an announcement at the airport referencing a Flight 180, the same flight in the first Final Destination (2000).
Producer Dean Devlin has a cameo as the cab driver who drives Ryan.
Jessica's husband leaves a message to meet her at a bar in LAX but this bar is beyond security checkpoint and we see Ryan has to snatch a boarding pass to get through security so it would have been impossible for either of them to meet at the bar without a pass. See more »
Mom, will you still be a science teacher when I get into high school?
Hmm... You never know. Why?
'Cause I think it'd be kind of weird to have your mom as a teacher.

I watched"Cellular" recently in 2015,and I was very satisfied. This film revolves around Jessica(Kim Basinger) she was kidnapped, and she dials a random number which is Ryan's number (Chris Evans) who being coward person , he avoids helping people too .Howeve Ryan will launch in an incredible race against time to save Jessica, as well as he has no idea about what await him.
The film was very amusing,exciting and entertaining. Besides i was well written,well acted and well directed. We as Moroccan people we can watch it with our parents, that's means that this movie does no include scenes which are inappropriate, so "Cellular" can be watched by all age categories.
Personally I think that this film transmit an important message to boys, especially to careless boys.
All in all, I really enjoyed watching this captivating film
