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.
