A weak story resting heavily on weak humour

By Jonathan L Hermitt

After watching this movie, the only thing that should be "claimed" is a refund.

Director-writer David E Talbert provided a creatively idle rom-com starring Paula Patton (Montana Moore); as a flight attendant who under the pressure of her mother (Jennifer Lawrence) and the wedding engagement of her younger sister (Lauren London) somehow finds herself in a position where she has to locate and bring a fiancé to her sister's rehearsal dinner in thirty days. In doing so, she uses her friends to set up an arguably illegal "spy network" to find out which of her ex- boyfriends are taking which flights- so she can manipulate herself aboard and hopefully start again with these men.

She wears the long, straight rom-com hair of ignorance with the smile of innocence which I like to call a ritual of rom-com. The story was naturally predictable adhering to every single rom-com textbook story model and so heavily resting on weak humour. Alongside the contemporary traditional female friend and gay male friend duo (similar to Devil's Wear Prada) it's one large equation for mediocre...if that.

I'm not particularly familiar with Talbert and this is the first film I've seen of his, regardless, in this film it's strongly indicative that he's chosen quantity over quality.

Absurd Premise Too Ridiculous To Get Past

Paula Patton is so sweet and beautiful that it's difficult to not like any movie she's in. However, I found the premise in this rom-com fantasy to be so absurd that I couldn't get past it.

Patton portrays Montana Moore, a flight attendant for Trans Alliance Airlines. She's been a bridesmaid 9 times but never a bride, while her domineering and annoying mother Catherine (Jenifer Lewis) has already been married 5 times. She's constantly pressuring Montana to find a man to marry, and now that Montana's younger sister is engaged the pressure is ratcheted up even further.

So what's the game plan, so Montana can "get a man" in thirty days, by the time of her sister's engagement party? Why, of course it's to flag all of her ex-boyfriends who are flying for the holidays and match Montana up with their flights. For this she will get the help of her two friends and fellow flight attendants Gail and Sam, ably portrayed by Jill Scott and Adam Brody. At least, they provide some much need comic relief here.

Of all the "hunks" she will meet on these flights, I liked Taye Diggs the best as Langston, who's a smarmy and egotistical politician, and who still has a caveman mentality. While Montana is trying to meet all these potential suitors, she maintains a strong friendship with William (Derek Luke), whom she's known since elementary school and just happens to live next door to her in their apartment building.

As noted by a number of reviewers you can guess which way this film is going and it doesn't disappoint in that regard. Overall, this movie, written and directed by David E. Talbert, based on his book, despite some funny moments and a feel-good ending was way too contrived and predictable for my liking.
