200px-Flightplan.jpgWe rung in the New Year with donuts and Flightplan (2005, PG-13) (Screen It! review). From Wikipedia:

A variation on the locked room mystery, the movie depicts what happens after Kyle Pratt (Jodie Foster) boards a fictional Aalto Airlines flight from Berlin to New York with her daughter Julia (Marlene Lawston). After falling asleep and waking up about three hours into the flight, Kyle learns that her daughter is missing. She searches the plane for her daughter, but according to the passenger manifest her daughter never boarded the flight. Also, no one remembers having seen her.

I think Lisa liked it fine, but I didn't care for it. Too farfetched. I give it 2 out of 5.


Wasn't it a copy of another movie that came out a year or two prior? I remember hearing about it on the radio. A woman's child goes missing, and when she asks about where the child might be, authorities act as if she never had a child.Speaking of implausible plots, we watched Lake House the other night. Very strange, and impossible plot. We also watched "The Family Stone," which was just okay. And "Failure to Launch," which was hilarious. "Firewall" was good, but predictable.I have Syriana to watch, and am anxious to see that. Also the first season of 24, which I will try to get to before the 14th.

Yep, that's the basic plot. According to Wikipedia, it has similarities with a couple much older films (Bunny Lake is Missing and The Lady Vanishes and its remake), but it doesn't mention that it's a copy of a recent one.

The movie is called "The Forgotten."Here is the plot summary, from IMDB:"A grieving mother, Telly Paretta, is struggling to cope with the loss of her 9-year-old son. She is stunned when her psychiatrist and her husband tell her that she has created eight years of memories of a son she never had. But when she meets the father of one of her son's friend who is having the same experience, Telly embarks on a mission to prove her son's existence and her sanity."It stars Juliette Moore, and is about a young mother who is told that her kids never existed.But she wasn't on a plane :>)

I was not a huge fan of the movie, but hey, I liked Rocky Balboa.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
