On a stormy night during World War II, a female pilot with top secret cargo talks her way on board a bomber plane about to take-off. The crass all-male crew reluctantly agrees, but their suspicions about her identity and the mysterious cargo quickly grow. Just then a shadow appears in the clouds - was it the incoming Japanese fleet? Or caused by some other sinister stowaway?
There is a real Maude Garrett. Screenwriter Max Landis named the character after her because her name sounded "old fashioned". She is not associated with the movie or Landis. She is, however, in the entertainment industry. See more »
The B-17 depicted is a G model, which did not operate in the Pacific Theater. See more »
Great lead performance downgraded by horrible writing
Chloe Frace Moretz is very good in this role for what she is given to work with and you can definitely tell that she is an actress with a lot of range and potential. Sadly, even her performance cannot hide the poor writing.
I was completely baffled when I saw Max Landis in the writing credits. Maybe that's the reason why some parts of the script was poor.
