A New Reason to Travel

Baggage Claim

A Must See!

Looking for that "feel good" movie to glide you into the holiday season? This is it! All the love, family and friendship you want is at a theatre near you! Paula Patton (Deja Vu, Jumping the Broom) is Montana Moore, a young, beautiful flight attendant who feels her time to be a wife is running out. With pressure from her mother to marry, and with her little sister about to walk down the isle, Montana is determined more than ever to get a ring on it. Digging into her little black book, and with the help of her friends and colleagues, she goes back down memory lane in hopes that her ex's have turned into husband material. Co-starring beside Paula is Jill Scott (Why Did I Get Married), Christina Milian (Love Don't Cost A Thing), Lauren London (This Christmas) and Jenifer Lewis (Think Like A Man). The eye-candy in this movie was far from disappointing. Boris Kodjoe (The Real Husbands of Hollywood), Dijimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond), Taye Diggs (The Best Man) and Derek Luke (Antwone Fisher) all gave appealing performances.

Montana Moore



David E. Talbert is no stranger to the entertainment world. He has written and directed 14 nationally acclaimed touring productions that has opened doors to 24 NAACP nominations and has placed him on the list for most produced playwrights in American theatre. His directorial debut was with Sony's comedy "First Sunday." He is originally from Washington DC. He received a marketing degree from Morgan State University and continued his education at New York University in their accelerated film program.

Stand Out Performance

I don't know about you, but after I watch a movie there is always a character/actor that lingers in my mind. Whether it be a dynamic performance, a memorable line or a crazy outfit, there is always one or two people that leave a lasting impression. When it pertains to Baggage Claim, Derek Luke is by far the actor that stands out. The man has played, and played opposite, the best in the business and every role he chooses is always strong and captivating. In this film, his character has foundation, morals and integrity; and he is such a gentlemen. To be honest, it's a very refreshing role to see a black male play. I cannot lie though; his chocolate skin and pearly white smile is a huge reason why he stands out in this film. Congrats Derek Luke for STANDING OUT!


Again, I will not lie to you. This is a straight up, top to bottom, all-around chick flick! There’s friendship, family and, of course, love spewed throughout this movie. All the things that are important to a woman, this movie is references. Not saying that a man cannot enjoy this movie, but, as we all know, a guaranteed chick-flick is not something most men are dying to see. One thing I can almost guarantee, is that this is a chick flick that he can appreciate. Make a date. Take her to see it. You won't be sorry you did.

      Here I am with my review of your writing. You are a good writer. Your movie review is to the point and comprehensive...without being wordy. Your excitement about the film shines through. Does it appeal to all the senses? That's a little hard to do in a movie review.....perhaps a simile or "makes you feel good like a warm mother's kiss. " Just a thought.
