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

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.

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

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 serious contender for the worst commercial release of 2013.

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.

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.

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.
