    If it seems like a stupid idea, well, it is. This is one of those romantic comedies that rely on wild coincidences and misunderstandings that could be cleared up with a simple cell phone call, but then, that wouldn't help the "plot" along. show more

    It would have worked better if the silly premise had been played for farcical satire, rather than following the cookie-cutter rules of the romantic comedy playbook. show more

    If you’re considering spending your hard-earned money on such bland fare, you should at least know what you’re getting: a rehash of every rom-com cliché imaginable. show more

    A few smart laughs hint at what might have been, but thanks to sitcom-y mugging and a tepidness beneath the intended hilarity, David E. Talbert’s romantic comedy is stuck in a holding pattern for much of its running time. show more

    Little chance of finding realism or romance but the laughs are there. show more

    Patton lightens the aggravation, for the most part, by combining a likable presence with a knack for physical comedy and a willingness to hop into dumpsters, etc., as needed, making the most of the script’s meager opportunities for comedy. show more

    Otherwise, Brody, Scott and Jenifer Lewis (as Montana’s imperious oft-married mom) give this formulaic material maximum comic spin. show more

    “You don’t need a man to define you!” Very true, and so much for feminism. The rest of the film takes a long, convoluted, predictable, and mostly unfunny route to prove that the opposite is the case. show more

    Baggage Claim is so archaic in its depiction of feminine self-worth — and, frankly, so insulting — it's amazing that it's coming out in 2013, not 1963. show more

    Nothing in this movie would actually happen, so what’s irritating is that it presents itself as a savvy, “Am I right, ladies?” dating commentary. show more

    Worst Movie Ever!!!!!!!!!!!! Don\'t even waste your time or money. It makes black people look very ignorant and it\'s like any other romantic comedy you have seen just worse. If you seen one you\'ve seen them all.

    I loved it! It was funny, sweet, and made you smile a lot from beginning to end. The ending was so funny! It was a sweet movie about trying to find love. I recommended to those who want to see a fun and light hearted movie. It wasn\'t pornographic like Don Jon.

    Partly good, partly not. It didn\'t hit the mark for me, but came real close.

    Loved it because it is done in the style of 50s romantic comedies, not the current style of shallow characters and their endless chatter filled with the F word. Lots of nice little things including snappy, clever dialogue, nice photograpy, acting and direction. Glad we went!
