No, seriously - Can I use it?

Because Guy couldn't just CALL Girl on her CELL PHONE. THAT would be too EASY.Or he could just hook up with her in Paris.Boy, I'm old, aren't I?

Ken Levine

GUY ran out of the house so fast he forgot his cellphone. Ralph Bellamy had justice of the peace waiting with him at GIRL'S destination to perform the ceremony at the baggage carousel. All these and any logic problems will be deftly explained in the script by one of the many writers the studio gets to rewrite me...and then each other.

Well goodness, you could have a running joke where he keeps trying his cellphone, but---- his battery is running low, he didn't charge it, didn't think he'd be trapped in a farce the next day.-- she's always trying to call someone else on her cell phone, whether airline info or a friend, etc. Or she gets a call from her mother who won't get off the phone, thus running down her battery.-- he's using an inferior cell carrier, so there's no coverage in the airport once he gets there, leading to a second running joke where he's taunted by continuous ads for the "good" cell service; when he finally snaps and breaks one of the airport displays, he can be detained by security and thus be even more suspicious later. "Can you hear me now?" "NOOOOO!"And if the lead is Kiefer Sutherland, there's an in-joke (aside from the time pressure) about how bad the cell service is, it's not like on tv, but it's not like it's the end of the world...

That was funny. I'd see that movie.But don't forget about the tour group of forty teenage girls who have 800 lbs of carry-on luggage they slowly load onto the security conveyor as they giggle and flirt with the boys in the tour group, who are themselves trying to look macho by having mock fights with their buddies, which then arouse the ire of the security personnel who have been looking all day for an excuse to take down some bitches SWAT style while GUY stands in line with his shoes in his hand.

That only happened when he played Franklin Delano Roosevelt. And even then...
