Paula Patton Goes On A 30-Day Quest To Find The One in 'BAGGAGE CLAIM' (Trailer)

As much as I try to root for Paula Patton, she continues to move farther away from her underrated performance in the 2009 drama, Precious, and closer to the pits of romcom hell after consecutively starring in both Just Wright (2010) and Jumping the Broom (2011).

Other than her role in the Tom Cruise actioner, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol in 2011 which she is rumored to reprise in the 2015 sequel) and this year's tech drama, Disconnect, the actress hasn't veered too far away from her romcom calling card.

In BAGGAGE CLAIM, Patton plays flight attendant Montana Moore, a woman on a desperate quest to find a man to bring to her younger sister's wedding in 30 days. She begins serial dating every eligible (and ineligible) man within a 30,000-mile radius.

*Insert heavy sigh here*

Right out the gate, the movie sounds basic. But at least there will be plenty of pretty people to look at--Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond, Gladiator), Taye Diggs (Chicago), Tia Mowry Hardrict (TV's "The Game"), Derek Luke (Sparkle) and Jill Scott (in a wretched wig/weave) are all in it, as is R&B singer Trey Songz, Boris Kodjoe and Adam Brody.

It may be piggy-backing off the recent success of Think Like a Man, but I wonder how the box office receipts will line up (TLAM grossed more than $91 million worldwide).

Check out the trailer:

BAGGAGE CLAIM releases in theaters September 27th.

This looks terrible, but maybe it will boost Patton's profile to some better leads.
