Rom-coms are usually bad, but this one takes bad to a whole new level. Baggage Claim is the worst movie of the year. Period.

Foxus majorus Paula Patton (2 Guns) is Montana Moore, airline hostess. She's always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Mom, who has been married four times -- or is it five? I didn't really care by that point -- is pushing her to find Mr. Right. She looks for love by connecting with past boyfriends who are flying about the country during the holidays.

All, of course, are the wrong guys. Her best guy friend is the obvious best choice.

Patton teams up with ultra-talented Derek Luke, Taye Diggs, Djimon Hounsou, Adam Brody and others in a film written and directed by David E. Talbert (Love in the Nick of Time), who writes films so bad the Hallmark Channel wouldn't air them.

Director: David E. Talbert

Stars: Paula Patton, Taye Diggs, Derek Luke, Adam Brody, Djimon Hounsou
