Romantic Comedy: A flight attendant, determined to get engaged before her younger sister's wedding, uses her airline industry connections to "bump into" eligible ex-boyfriends around the country.
Montana Moore (PAULA PATTON) is a thirty-something flight attendant, who is still single due to her admittedly "high standards." She has been willing to wait for her perfect man, even though her mother, Catherine (JENIFER LEWIS), has been married five times and all of her siblings have gotten married. When her youngest sister, college sophomore Sheree (LAUREN LONDON), becomes engaged, Montana vows to find a man who'll marry her before the big day in one month.
After finding out that her current boyfriend, wealthy entrepreneur Graham (BORIS KODJOE), has a wife, Montana 's fellow flight attendant Sam (ADAM BRODY) convinces Montana to use their airline connections to see which of her ex-boyfriends will be traveling by air over the next month so she can just "bump into them" on the different flights and at the different terminals. Their scheme, which flight attendant Gail (JILL SCOTT) thinks is ridiculous, involves security personnel, baggage handlers, and reservations assistants from all over. And they do net three possibilities: Damon Diesel (TREY SONGZ), a record industry producer who is actually the pawn and play-thing of a rich, unstable woman; Langston Jefferson Battle III (TAYE DIGGS), a career politician who wants a trophy wife who will keep her mouth shut; and Quinton Jamison (DJIMON HOUNSOU), a hotel mogul who has been married twice and wants only travel and adventure.
The whole while, Montana maintains a close friendship with William (DEREK LUKE), a blue-collar man she has known since kindergarten. They are the closest of friends and live across from one another in the same building. They might be perfect for each other if it weren't for William being in a long-term relationship and Montana craving someone more dynamic to impress her mother and family.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
