A frothy rom-com featuring a gorgeous–but still single–flight attendant's quest for securing a marriage proposal, this film is more archaic in its portrayal of female self-worth than a Disney princess fairytale. When faced with the prospect of becoming the last one to earn a coveted ring after her little sister's surprise engagement, Montana Moore (Paula Patton) and her flight attendant friends hustle up a hare brained scheme to find her a man. Much time is devoted to tiring montages of Montana trundling through airports to "accidentally" meet up with an ex on a flight, all while high school pal Mr. Wright (Derek Luke) plays the neighbor-in-waiting. Jill Scott as Montana's sassy gal pal offers some levity to the script as does Adam Brody as the straight shooting gay friend, but the sexist setup and Patton's inability to carry a laugh kills off any semblance of fun or romance.
