Jet Lag (aka Decalage Horaire) product reviews


A wonderfully fun and sexy comedy where opposites don't just attract, they collide! Pampered beauty queen Rose and over-stressed insomniac Felix have only one thing in common: they're through with bad relationships and have both sworn off the opposite sex.

When an airline strike grounds these total strangers together in Paris - and they're forced to share the last available hotel room in town - neither can wait to leave the other behind.

But the more they try to go their separate ways, the more obvious it becomes that there's no place they'd rather be.

First off, it was obvious that the actors were speaking in French, but after about 10 minutes you stop noticing it much. If you just hit the 'play' button you end up with French soundtrack and English subtitles on by default... so a few quick presses of the remote, and bingo that's fixed.

The story, well, it is a series of comic disasters and misunderstandings, with quite a bit of almost-romance thrown in. By halfway through the movie these two 'strangers' are acting like a couple who have been married for about 5 years... bickering, reconciling, miscommunicating, etc. But it's done in the best possible taste. :)

I can't really comment on the movie too much, without giving key elements away, but I can say that if you have seen Jean Reno in 'The Professional' this is a major change of pace... which he pulls off well. Very well. Not much chance of this guy getting typecast anytime soon. :)

Overall, a funny movie indeed. A good, hearty romantic comedy, that would probably appeal to the romantic set more than it did for me. I enjoyed it, but because it really isn't my thing (despite totally enjoying 'A Bed of Roses' with Christian Slater) I found it to be a view-once movie.

Product image for CloverfieldA group of friends throw a party for Rob, who is leaving New York to go and work in Japan. As the party progresses, however, violent shakes and explosions herald the arrival of an unknown creature, which begins its rampage by throwing the head of the Statue of Liberty down into a street.

Told from the viewfinder of their video camera, Cloverfield shows how Rob and his friends venture deep into the streets of New York, avoiding the giant creature however possible, determined to rescue Rob's true love from her destroyed apartment building in midtown.
