Determined to get engaged before her youngest sister's wedding, flight attendant Montana Moore (Paula Patton) finds herself with only 30 days to find Mr. Right. Using her airline connections to "accidentally" meet up with eligible ex-boyfriends and scour for potential candidates, she racks up more than 30,000 miles and countless comedic encounters, all the while searching for the perfect guy.
While novel adaptations are nothing new in this day and age, it's still rare to find a novelist who has made the transition from author to filmmaker. David E. Talbert (First Sunday) is one of the few exceptions, as he both wrote the screenplay adaptation for his own novel and directed the new comedy Baggage Claim, which was released earlier this month on Blu-ray and DVD. Paula Patton stars as flight attendant Montana Moore, who goes on a whirlwind journey over 30 days to find the perfect fiancee before her younger sister gets married. I recently had the chance to chat with writer-director David E. Talbert and actress Jenifer Lewis, who plays Montana's mother Catherine, about the logistical challenges of the production, how the filmmaker adapted his own work, and what made the actress sign on to join this all-star cast. Take a look at our exclusive interview with Jenifer Lewis and David E. Talbert for this comedy.
