One man's life is thrown into turmoil by picking up a telephone in this claustrophobic thriller. Stu Shepard (Colin Farrell) is a brash, cynical, and self-centered public relations man who juggles a busy career with both a wife, Kelly (Radha Mitchell), and a mistress, Pamela (Katie Holmes). Stu steps into a phone booth on a busy New York street to make a call to Pamela without Kelly being the wiser, but as soon as Stu hangs up, the phone begins to ring. Curious, Stu picks it up -- and a stranger on the other end (voice of Kiefer Sutherland) informs him that if he hangs up the phone, he'll be shot. The red dot of an infrared rifle scope convinces Stu that the caller means business, and when another man tries to make his way into the booth, he's shot mere inches from Stu, calling the attention of the police. Captain Ramey (Forest Whitaker) naturally assumes that Stu was the killer, as Stu struggles to find a way to convince the police of what's happening before more lives are lost, without leaving the booth and putting his own life on the line. At one time proposed as a vehicle for Jim Carrey, Phone Booth was directed by Joel Schumacher, from a screenplay by exploitation icon Larry Cohen.

Phone Booth was not what I expected when I first saw it. It had too much bad language.
Phone Booth was a great movie.There was a lesson in this movie from what I can remember.I can't wait to see it again one day!
This film starring Colin Farrell was doomed from the start with a rather fixed plot. The entire plot is fixed around the phone booth where Farrell's character is held hostage by a psychotic sniper. Sub-plots are therefore brought to the location of the phone booth to keep the story interesting. Although Farrell's acting is great, the story has many holes and many of the characters are less than believable. Altogether dissapointing.
All this time watching a guy in a phone booth. I'd like my hour and 21 minutes and rental fee back. Pass this one up, it ain't worth it.
This movie was so tedious and painful that I spent the entire time hoping the guy would get shot soon--or that I would get shot to end the pain and suffering. The entire plot really only takes about 30 minutes, with a bunch of boring junk filling the remaining time. This one goes on my list of 10 worst movies I've seen.
Taught and tense, it really kept my attention. You could not predict what was going to happen next. The concept was intriguing.
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE AND INTERESTING MOVIES I HAVE EVER WATCHED, ITS NOT TOO PREDICTABLE OR BORING, DESPITE THAT %80 OF THE MOVIE IS SET IN A PHONE BOOTH. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU PURCHASE IT, I'M SURE YOU WON'T BE DISAPOINTED.
Man. I'm still shaking from watching Phone Booth. This film is gripping, intense, and at times, scary. I'm not kidding. This is without a doubt Colin Farrell's best performance yet, and Kiefer Sutherland was a perfect choice for the sniper. You want suspense??!! Go see Phone Booth now! By the way, I love thrillers in which the villain toys with the main character.
Colin Farrell is once again featured in a top box-office hit. This movie about a pushy publicist named Stu whose life is changed around with one phone call delivers plenty of suspense but only focuses on dialog and close up camera shots of Farrell's face. An overall good movie with a splendidly surprising ending.
I really really liked this movie.It kept my eyes on the screen the whole time!I liked the whole idea of the movie and I think Colin Farrell is a gr8 actor.It was cool to see Stu(colin's character)act all cool and swift one minute and begging for his life the next minute.
Phone Booth was a great movie! It was nothing like I expected, but that's part of what made it so great! I saw this movie after seeing the show 24 starring Kiefer Sutherland, so I was used to him being a certain way, but in this movie he was the psycho serial killer guy, and he was still really great!!! He is a really great actor, and Collin Farrell did a pretty good job, too! I HIGHLY recommend this movie!!!
It's excellent! Keeps you glued to your site! Colin Farrell delivers a spectacular performance!!
greatly acted by colin and well thought out its nice to see a panicly overacted screenplay toned down by the realness of his emotions
