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

too hot problem
24 February 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Meg (Kate Upton) and Kate (Alexandra Daddario) are best friends since childhood. The two Seattle roommates are struggling and Meg decides on a girls trip to Fort Lauderdale. They have hunky Ryan (Matt Barr) sitting in between them and a competition ensues. The plane is diverted to St. Louis due to a hurricane. They stay at a hotel with fellow passengers. The threesome join passenger Craig (Matt Jones) on a drive to the Fort.

William H. Macy tries his hand at directing. It's questionable how two of the hottest women on the planet would fight over the same guy. Sure he's hunky but these girls could snap their fingers and get any guy they want. As for their acting talents, Kate Upton functions well for an SI Swimsuit model. Daddario actually has some comedic skills although that's not her natural talents. It's also weird to have her as a less-hot side kick. That standard role has a pantheon of great actresses. I don't think she is build to play one. While this has some slapstick fun, it can never overcome the hot-girl-struggles problem. Daddario is too hot to be the dumpy best friend. Although I love Daddario, her role needs to be given to a real comedian. The script is nothing to write home about. I do sympathize with the girls trying their best.
