Baggage Claim (2013)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Baggage Claim hits the same notes as a number of successful romantic comedies without establishing much personality of its own.

Patton is best at contagious bliss. She might be the best at it. When she smiles, you smile. You want her to have what she wants even when how she wants it is stupid.

Dutifully assembles crowd-pleasing cliches and chick-lit tropes as if following instructions from an IKEA rom-com catalog.

Metro

A tired and manipulative comedy, this new film is one of the most creatively-inert flicks of the year.

There must be better material out there for [Paula Patton] somewhere.

Birmingham Mail

If the dating process depicted here is humiliating for the character of Montana Moore, it's liberating for Paula Patton: The actress reveals herself to be a sort of sexier Lucille Ball, agreeably sacrificing her dignity in pursuit of laughs.

It's fun in a dumb kind of way, but it sets feminism back several decades.

Audience Reviews for Baggage Claim

When the 8-year-old in the room predicts how your movie is going to end, this is not a good sign, my friends. One star for the always funny Taye. And one star for the dog.

She's done flying solo.

Decent Movie! "Baggage Claim" is one of those typical romantic comedies that's predictable you have the girl meets a guy in an unexpected way and falls in love. And true it has plenty of one liners and funny lines to entertain a viewer and it's filled with sugar and spice love scenes to enjoy. Whilst it offers a charming and pleasant experience it is not inventive as a story, succumbing to the rom-com principle of Mr & Mrs perfect live happily ever after. Not a bad experience for viewers who go see it in couples.

William: You've spent your whole life wanting to be your own woman. Why do you want to change things now?

Baggage Claim has come from a long line of romantic comedies featuring impossibly beautiful women with problems finding love. It is annoying to have to say something like, "take my words with a grain of salt, as this is not my preferred genre," but it is true. Baggage Claim is definitely a film that is made for an audience that is into these kinds of clichéd romantic comedies, which feature attractive casts and the bare minimum requirements to develop a premise that slightly differs from those that came before it. One can throw the "hypocrite" label at me all they want, when I recommend a horror movie that feels ever so similar to another one and does not do a whole lot new, but what can I say? Some movies just do not work for me, especially when I have examples of similar ones that do. Baggage Claim may work as easy entertainment for some, but there is very little here that had me legitimately enjoying the film.
