Review The movie, Passengers, is a psychological thriller/romance combo about the survivors of an airplane crash, with Hathaway starring as the grief counsellor who is supposed to help. Her co-stars are Patrick Wilson (Little Children), a survivor who is determined to bury his fear and other crash-related emotions; Dianne Wiest, who plays Hathaway's neighbour; and David Morse, who has a role as an airline employee...Hathaway's patients have conflicting memories of what happened on board the doomed aircraft...The problem is the general filler and tedious trailing-around-doing-nothing undertaken by the actors, who have nothing to do in the 80 minutes between the opening plane crash and the final big reveal -- the poor sods...Anne Hathaway and Patrick Wilson both put in reasonable enough performances, but there's not much one can do with a film this clumsy. It's amateurish in execution. It's bad storytelling...Hathaway seems to be fighting to control her own natural comedic ability in this role. Maybe everyone involved with Passengers just hopes it will vanish quickly from theatres before it sullies Hathaway's current triumph in the film Rachel Getting Married...The actress is said to be a dead cert for a best-actress Oscar nomination for her work in Rachel Getting Married, so maybe Passengers is the dream-killer for her that Norbit was for Eddie Murphy -- the film that allegedly robbed him of an Academy Award for Dreamgirls. Better if no one sees it...That's all speculation of course. What's more, it's speculation that assumes thought on the part of someone in Hollywood, so -- nah...Passengers is just a lousy movie, but you're not supposed to find that out until after you've paid for an admission ticket. That sounds closer to the truth.
