Ah screw it. FWIW, I did like the movie and it was a great story.

Dumb enough to spend lots of cash on this junk!

If you have a problem with suspended belief in Flight then how do you watch ANY film, because of noise/explosions in space, never reloading guns, no need for sleep/eating/restroom, wounds that heal in hours, cars that fly 100's of feet in the air and still drive,.......?

I get what you're saying, but I don't sit in the theater and think "That could never happen!!!" I just don't, I accept it, and it's more fun that way.

Flight is not about an actual event or person and is meant to be ONLY for entertainment.

Whoa, Forrest Gump was based on a real person?
