Disappointing romantic comedy about an Eastern European traveler (Tom Hanks) who, after his homeland's government is overthrown by a coup while he is en route to the United States, is denied access to American soil and forced to live in an airport terminal where he befriends several members of the maintenance staff and finds love with a lonely flight attendant (Catherine Zeta-Jones). Loosely based on real-life events, the lackluster movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, though full of political pretensions, never really offers any insights into the immigrant experience but instead keeps viewers' attention in a holding pattern of manufactured emotion. Brief crude language and some drug references. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
