This paint-by-numbers romcom goes for quantity over quality, taking every genre chestnut and multiplying it to the power of ten. Sassy, oversexed best-friend-forever: how about two? Wacky montage: why not a dozen? The film’s lonely singleton, air hostess Montana (Paula Patton), is cobbled together from random bits and pieces of past heroines (naive! clumsy! sexy!) – and she’s basically an insult to all women. Meanwhile, the endless string of men who court her – thanks to an implausible central conceit – are uniformly handsome, wealthy and problematic. The direction is on a par with a health insurance ad, and in case you have a brain injury and are confused about where this cartoonish film is heading, just keep an eye out for a guy named – no joke – Mr Wright.
