Baggage Claim Reviews

August 7, 2018
Talbert sneaks in a few funny one-liners and genuinely touching scenes, but he mostly seems content to keep Montana scurrying through a meaningless maze of boring rom-com cliches.

Though silly and far-fetched, Baggage Claim remains an enjoyable romp, mostly due to its ensemble's energetic playing and writer/director David E. Talbert's breathless pacing.

The film does not miss a beat with the placement of pivotal characters.

Honestly, I don't know what to say about this movie, because it feels so phenomenally old-fashioned and outdated, so ridiculously conservative and undermining of female independence.

Baggage Claim focuses too much on plot and too little on character.
May 5, 2015
Dutifully assembles crowd-pleasing cliches and chick-lit tropes as if following instructions from an IKEA rom-com catalog.
December 24, 2013
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."
October 14, 2013
An utterly anodyne romcom with nothing to surprise and less to offend.
October 11, 2013
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.
October 11, 2013
A serious contender for the worst commercial release of 2013.
October 10, 2013
A plot and a script that would be better aired in a cheesy ballad, or even a hairspray commercial.
October 10, 2013
Patton is sunny and likeable but her behaviour is bonkers and the movie nose-dives towards oblivion.
October 10, 2013
Romcom fans deserve something with more heart.
October 10, 2013
Sloppy and predictable, Baggage Claim is a clichd and unoriginal rom-com, thanks to some mediocre performances and an unimaginative script ...
October 9, 2013
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.
