Baggage Claim Review - 2½ Stars

Bubbly Paula Patton plays a flight attendant feeling the pressure to find Mr. Right.  This light romantic comedy gets a boost from a great cast, including Jill Scott as a comic best friend, plus a parade of good looking guys including Taye Diggs, Djimon Hounsou and the guy who lives across the hall Derek Luke.  You probably can guess the rest but the story floats and Paula does her best to keep the spirit of romantic comedy alive and well.  Jennifer Lawrence adds great comic chops as Paula’s push five times married mother.  Lawrence improves almost every movie she makes.  Does it deliver what it promises?  Light romance.  Is it entertaining?  Often funny.  Is it worth the price of admission?  Just for fun.
