Anyone see it yet? I thought the plot was a little weak in places, but overall I enjoyed it. Tom Hanks was really good.

I want to go see it. Is it worth going to see it in the theatre, or should I just wait and rent it when it comes out on DVD?

Watching it in the theatre was enough for me. If I were renting a movie I'd consider it, but I definitely won't be buying the DVD.

It's an entertaining 2 hours, but nothing worth owning.

Why would only one person who just got off the plane from the affected country have the problem? Seems more likely a whole planeload of people would have the same problem.

The story is inpired from the fact that there really is an Iranian man who has lived in Charles de Gaulle Airport since 1988- that actual story probably would have made an even better movie.

I thought it was pretty good; however, (2) parts I didn't care much for:

1.) The whole immediate wedding of the Terminal workers.
2.) CZJ wasn't fully naked in a movie (again).

*Spoiler kinda sorta not really*



I would have liked a more compelling reason as to why his dad wanted the signatures of all those jazz people. I also thought the plausability of the CZJ relationship was pretty slim. Yea, a hot fligh attendent wants some smelly russian guy who barely speaks english. But I guess "a guy like me" wouldn't understand...
