June Havens (Cameron Diaz) ends up on a flight with Roy Miller (Tom Cruise), a charmer who turns out to be a secret agent; when Roy is suddenly attacked by the plane’s crew and several passengers, June realizes that she’s about to embark on quite the adventure. Cruise pondered several other action movies before deciding on this piece of fluff, a comic variation on his Ethan Hunt character from Mission: Impossible. It opens with a bang and continues in the same style; for those who can take the tongue-in-cheek attitude, the action is intense and imaginative, with charismatic performances by the stars.
