    Little chance of finding realism or romance but the laughs are there. Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Paula Patton is such a terrific actress that even in the ultra-tacky romantic comedy Baggage Claim, she gives a luminous, thought-out performance, not just walking through but digging into the role of an eager, nervous doormat with a people-pleasing grin.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Writer-director David E. Talbert, working from his novel, tackles each musical interlude, montage and mad dash to an airport like he's the first person ever to think of them.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Otherwise, Brody, Scott and Jenifer Lewis (as Montana’s imperious oft-married mom) give this formulaic material maximum comic spin.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Glossy, flossy and blithely secure in its own cheerfully fake worldview, Baggage Claim bypasses the intellect entirely, happy to satisfy on a silly, screwball, wish-fulfillment level. It could have been so much better, but for racking up undemanding escapist flyer miles, it’ll do.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Bruce Ingram

    Patton lightens the aggravation, for the most part, by combining a likable presence with a knack for physical comedy and a willingness to hop into dumpsters, etc., as needed, making the most of the script’s meager opportunities for comedy.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • G. Allen Johnson

    If it seems like a stupid idea, well, it is. This is one of those romantic comedies that rely on wild coincidences and misunderstandings that could be cleared up with a simple cell phone call, but then, that wouldn't help the "plot" along.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    It would have worked better if the silly premise had been played for farcical satire, rather than following the cookie-cutter rules of the romantic comedy playbook.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ken McIntyre

    Showing subtlety the door almost the minute it starts, David E Talbert's romcom is the filmic equivalent of a frying pan to the skull.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    This is a movie that can’t decide on the story it wants to tell, and can’t seem to tell it particularly well, either.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    That's perhaps the best word to describe Baggage Claim: contrived. And predictable, as it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out which tall, dark and handsome fellow she'll end up with.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    If you’re considering spending your hard-earned money on such bland fare, you should at least know what you’re getting: a rehash of every rom-com cliché imaginable.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Diggs does what he can with the part, as does Patton. There are some funny moments, because most of the cast is so charming. But not enough to make up for the Stone Age attitude about women and marriage.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Annlee Ellingson

    Baggage Claim promotes painfully outdated social mores.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Its pleasures are all glib and surface-level, although Luke and Patton have enough chemistry to make their painfully clichéd relationship go down smoothly.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Jenna Scherer

    Talbert’s directing is on par with a prescription-drug commercial, and in case you have a brain injury and thus are at all confused where this cartoonish film is heading, just keep an eye out for the guy who is named — we kid you not — Mr. Wright.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Ernest Hardy

    There are a handful of laughs, but nothing to balance the onslaught of clichés.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    A few smart laughs hint at what might have been, but thanks to sitcom-y mugging and a tepidness beneath the intended hilarity, David E. Talbert’s romantic comedy is stuck in a holding pattern for much of its running time.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    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. Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    “You don’t need a man to define you!” Very true, and so much for feminism. The rest of the film takes a long, convoluted, predictable, and mostly unfunny route to prove that the opposite is the case.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    Predictability and clichés get in the way of comedy here, especially with a lead character who rarely comes across as more than blandly sweet.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Although there’s a strong likability quotient for everyone onscreen here, which ought to keep the movie minimally afloat among its target audience of black viewers starved for a new Tyler Perry offering, Baggage Claim should be left behind at the carousel.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Chemistry you can fake, but charm is far harder to pull off, and Baggage Claim never quite succeeds on that front.

    Variety Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    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.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Without a coherent lead performance, all Baggage Claim has left are its generic rom-com plot — which has flight-attendant Patton jetting around the country to meet the perfect man in time for her younger sister’s wedding — and profoundly shoddy production values.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Writer-director David E. Talbert adapts his own 2003 novel into something as useless as it is implosive.
