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.

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.

"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.

A painfully predictable romance, and a terribly unfunny comedy.

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.

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.

As the end credits finally rolled, the best review was uttered by a woman in the row behind me: "This is the kind of movie they'll show on Starz in a couple months and you'll watch when you're really bored."

An utterly anodyne romcom with nothing to surprise and less to offend.

Talbert adapted his script from a novel he wrote in 2003, which you have to assume had wipe-clean pages and a squeaker hidden inside the front cover.

A plot and a script that would be better aired in a cheesy ballad, or even a hairspray commercial.

Patton is sunny and likeable but her behaviour is bonkers and the movie nose-dives towards oblivion.

Sloppy and predictable, Baggage Claim is a clichéd and unoriginal rom-com, thanks to some mediocre performances and an unimaginative script ...

This is the sort of script you imagine came with little hearts over the 'i's instead of dots. With no jokes to freshen it up, it's cheesier than a ripe camembert in an unwashed sock.

David E Talbert's romcom is the filmic equivalent of a frying pan to the skull.

A romantic comedy that gets its charm from Paula Patton's performance.

If you're the type of person who can offer a three minute impassioned defense of Fool's Gold or more than five reasons why Just Like Heaven is worth grabbing out of a five dollar bin, paying to see this movie is far from a horrible idea.

The film is aggressively shallow and superficial in its attitude toward contemporary romance, and it hardly presents a realistic portrayal of the plight of single women. But at least it's equally insulting to members of both genders.

A lame comedy that looks like it was made - and belongs - in the 60's. Despite a game cast this movie is broad without being even remotely believable.

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.
