Paula Patton proves she’s much, much more than Mrs. Robin “Blurred Lines” Thicke and her coming out party is out now on DVD and Blu-Ray. Baggage Claim is a romantic comedy that uses a unique technique to get its characters together, something greatly needed in an often repeated genre of film.
Patton stars as a flight attendant who has given up looking for a man after a slew of bad break-ups and no real prospects. But, when her sister (younger sister no less!) announces that she’s getting married, Patton is determined to find the man of her dreams before her sister walks down the aisle.
Using her connections at the airlines, she works it so she finds out what flights some of her exes are on, in order to “accidentally” meet them on the flight as she waits on them and helps them to their seat.
The exes are superbly cast, especially Taye Diggs, Trey Songz, Boris Kodjoe and Djimon Hounsou.
Fans of the romantic comedy genre will appreciate the fresh take on the format and Patton shows herself a true movie star in the making. When it comes to bonus features, the highlights are the “promotional featurettes,” particularly Fly Girls, Wing Men and the Interview with the Cast.
The behind-the-scenes featurette with director David E. Talbert is pretty informative, but even more so is the audio commentary option for watching the film by the helmer.
Overall, Baggage Claim is light on terrific bonus features and the film itself is rather light as well… as we stated in our theatrical Baggage Claim review. But, fans of Patton and the rom-com genre can do much worse than this fun flight.
Baggage Claim is also available on digital download, so why not watch Baggage Claim online.
