Little chance of finding realism or romance but the laughs are there.

Entertainment Weekly

By 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.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

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

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.

USA Today

By 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.

Chicago Sun-Times

By 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.

Arizona Republic

By 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.

Village Voice

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

The Dissolve

By 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.

Variety

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