Baggage Claim (2013)

Baggage Claim movie poster.jpg

Paula Patton is Montana Moore, a lovely but pathologically single 30-something whose serially married mom thinks she’s practically disabled and whose younger sister (a college sophomore) is already engaged. Her air steward friends Adam Brody and Jill Scott arrange for her to travel 30,000 miles cross-country in 30 days to reacquaint herself with her exes who are a rum lot – Taye Diggs is the politico, Trey Songz is the musician, Djimon Hounsou the commitment-phobe. Will she find a fiance before her sister’s wedding?!  In this modern spin on an old story, the answer, of course lies with her best friend, Derek Luke who is actually called Mr Wright. David E. Talbert adapted his own novel and if critics despised it, viewers didn’t and you know what? Patton is just a total sweetheart and I wish she’d do more. She’s great!
