QUICK TAKE:
Drama: An airline pilot, his college-aged daughter, a TV reporter and others must contend with people around them suddenly and simultaneously disappearing.
PLOT:
Chloe Steele (CASSI THOMSON) is on her home way from college to help celebrate the birthday of her airline pilot dad, Rayford (NICOLAS CAGE), with her mom, Irene (LEA THOMPSON), and younger brother, Raymie (MAJOR DODSON). Chloe doesn't get along with her mom due to the latter's newfound religious beliefs, and is disappointed that her dad has to work and fly from New York to London. She's particularly dismayed that he seems a bit too friendly with one of his flight attendants, the very attractive Hattie Durham (NICKY WHELAN).

After getting into an argument over religion with her mom, Chloe takes her brother to the shopping mall. At the same time, Rayford lifts off with Hattie and the rest of his crew, along with a planeload of passengers. Among them is Buck Williams (CHAD MICHAEL MURRAY), a TV reporter who met Chloe before his flight; Shasta Carvell (JORDIN SPARKS), a mother traveling with her daughter; and Hassid (ALEC RAYME), an Arabic man who must contend with looks of disdain from Melvin Weir (MARTIN KLEBBA), a little person with a chip on his shoulder due to his diminutive size.

All must contend with the simultaneous disappearance of various people not only on the plane, but also everywhere on the ground. As Chloe frantically tries to find her now missing brother, Buck helps Rayford and Hattie deal with the passengers. As they turn back for New York, they must not contend with a dwindling fuel supply and various system failures, but also the mystery of what's happened to those who suddenly disappeared.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're into these sorts of films, they might show some interest, but I just don't see a huge audience for this among kids.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some thematic elements, violence/peril and brief drug content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
