Cellular has been compared to Phone Booth favorably. That is ridiculous. Phone booth was extremely clever in its usage of a small space to tell the story with interesting characters (especially Collin Farrell, Keefer Sutherland and Forest Whitaker), clever plot twists, witty dialogue and even interesting background colors to the sets, whereas Cellular had to crash cars all over Los Angeles to barely advance the story. None of the characters in Cellular were interesting enough to make me stay on the line if one of them called me. They were all extreme stereotypes (good mom, nice kid, good cop, bad corrupt cop) without any interesting quirks that would have redeemed the movie. Very one dimensional multimillion dollar crap with a lot of product placement and very little story. Nokia obviously paid the big bucks and figured as much in this movie as the human actors did. It had a good idea and started out promising but deteriorated rapidly into Starsky and Hutch territory. Don't bother with this.
