Storyline

After countless lonely nights over a bottle of wine and "The Bachelor", the Seattle longtime friends, Kate, a high school English teacher, and Meg, an ambitious cosmetics saleswoman, are beginning to realise that they are going through a rough patch. To take a break, the pair will soon find themselves on an impromptu flight to Fort Lauderdale, seated next to the handsome blonde Ryan who is on his way to a friend's wedding. All of a sudden, the two best friends will get sucked into a destructive spiral of relentless competition and cut-throat one-upmanship with Ryan as the prize, especially when a Category 4 hurricane reroutes their flight to a St. Louis layover. They say all is fair in love and war; however, is Ryan worthy of Meg and Kate's years of friendship? Written by Nick Riganas

Don't bother
2 September 2017 | by Chev OlekSee all my reviews

Don't waste your time and money, not worth it. Boring. Very few funny short scenes. It shows the kinda one night stand girl.

Daddario did show she can be funny (in several scenes, not all), unfortunately in this movie her comedic talent (which I never seen before-Baywatch remake?- That lousy movie does not count). Let's hope she does not go the way Zac Efron is going, bad comedies. He also has made bad choices lately.
