The absolute greatest movie of all time
The absolute greatest movie of all time. Hands down. My future wife, Alexandra Daddario, and future second wife, Kate Upton, play best friends competing for the affection of a man who I would kill to be.

Both actresses really bring their best... "assets" to this movie. My eyes were glued to the screen because I couldn't look away from their... "acting chops." Their "talent" really shines in a scene which takes place in a swimming pool where both women are just being the greatest thing God ever created. They are living proof that there is a God. They deserve Oscars for their performances. The producers, writers, and casting directors all deserve Oscars for putting Alexandra and Kate together for our enjoyment.

This film is also very emotional. I went through at least twenty tissue boxes watching this film.

I'd give it an 8008 out of 10 if I could.

A variation on a theme - adequate road movie
Two women who have known each other since school find themselves down on their luck. One is impulsive and care-free the other responsible and considered. A spontaneous trip away sees them stranded with a hot guy they are both interested in.

This is a pretty well used format, but normally with two guys chasing a pretty girl. With the genders flipped it means the knob gags are switched for boob gags and the girls try to out-flirt each other rather than out- do each other.

Now there is nothing particularly new here and I didn't find the film hilariously funny.

But the two leads are very engaging and have great chemistry. Their relationship is quite subtly handled and I enjoyed their antics. Their quarry fits the bill perfectly and feels worthy if their attention.

This isn't the funniest or slickest comedy out there but I found it a great waste of ninety minutes.

VIEWS ON FILM review of The Layover
Meg (Kate Upton) and Kate (Alexandra Daddario) are best friends who live together. Meg is really bad at selling beauty products and Kate is a high school teacher who might be forced to resign. When their lives become screwed up, they decide to relax and take a trip to Florida. On their plane ride to the Sunshine State, Meg and Kate encounter a pending hurricane and are diverted to St. Louis, MO. While stuck in St. Louis, they compete hard for a hunky guy (Matt Barr as Ryan) and fracture each other's friendship in the process. That's the central theme of The Layover, my latest review.

By definition, a film director controls a movie's artistic and dramatic aspects and visualizes the screenplay while guiding the technical crew and actors in the fulfillment of that vision. William H. Macy, a shining TV actor who kills it on Shameless, is "Layover's" antonym director. As you watch The Layover, you wonder if Macy lost a bet or had pressure from the suits at Vertical Entertainment to put out an assembly line, R-rated comedy product. In jest, "Layover" has almost no cinematic innovation, a loose plot, and virtually zero character development. It runs 88 minutes, is playing in only a handful of theaters, and has been mostly demoted to release by way of the Internet. Granted, these are all bad signs. Believe that.

Now it's hard for me to accept that William H. Macy actually filmed The Layover. Sadly, he did and he makes a lot of mistakes in his second directorial effort. The first is casting Kate Upton in one of the lead roles and then relegating known troupers like Kal Penn and Rob Corddry to two-minute cameos. Listen, I think Upton is pretty to look at and she gets props for having the same birthplace as me (St. Joseph, MI). But let's be real shall we. She's not ready to carry a movie yet and her acting is borderline inept. It's mind-boggling to think that Macy would truly approve of some of her dialogue takes. When Kate's Meg is trying to say something sincere or trying to appear unladylike, it's cringe- worthy as heck.

Another mistake Macy makes is the general way in which he presents The Layover itself. There are plenty of slapstick moments, road trip instances, a ridiculous sex scene straight from the annals of Macy's own Shameless, some bathroom humor, and the usual, sexual innuendo. These elements feel like pawns to simply keep the narrative going. Overall, the brand of funny here feels forced and familiar and that's something William H. Macy never exhibits when brilliantly playing a sleazeball on America's television set.

Finally, Macy makes the big miscalculation of approving a film soundtrack that could take Muzak to a whole new level. With the exception of Human League's 1981 ditty "Do You Want Me", every song in The Layover could easily be featured on a Kidz Bop compilation album. Basically, we're talking about tunes that can make your ears bleed.

In conclusion, William H. Macy's direction is uniformly standard. With minimal sway, Bill almost holds back on the R-rated fare and tries to wrap up "Layover" in the same sort of fashion as Kate Upton's other flick, The Other Woman (small spoiler). Here's the problem: The Other Woman with its notion of girl-minded revenge and guy player mentality, wasn't that great to begin with. Bottom line: The Layover gets a one and a half star rating from me. As a moviegoer, you really need to "delay" yourself from seeing it.

absolutely lame
Absolutely horrible.Terrible plot. Attempt at humor: someone farting in the car and the others characters' reactions.Their hot air balloon falls on a kids birthday cake.Kate Upton is a terrible actress-she f bombs her way through the plot on one emotionless level. An absolute waste of time.

A fun filled romantic comedy
This film tells the story of two young women, whose lives are going less smoothly as desired. They decide to go on a spontaneous trip to Florida, and they meet a charming man on the flight. They fight for this guy's attention with increasing severity.

"The Layover" is charming and fun. The two women fight for the same guy, and the tactics they use get increasingly mean and horrible. As a result, there are a lot of hilarious and unintended consequences. Alexandra Daddario is really fun and charming in this film, she just makes you want her to succeed in her quest for the guy. I enjoyed watching this bubble gum romantic comedy.

An Abomination
It's hard to believe one of the screen's fine talents, William H.Macy, directed this abomination of a movie. I don't care if it's raunchy and crude which it certainly is, but it's also horribly unfunny and that's a deadly combination in my book. To add insult to injury, I found the film to be terribly demeaning of women.

All in all, save yourself the pain and run far far away from this stinker!

Not 'that' bad
The truth is it isn't but there are caveats. Forgetting everything else, if you take one look at the cover image used to portray this movie, you should get a pretty good indication of what your letting yourself in for. Unless you get dragged to it, or just wonder into the cinema complex and randomly choose a film to watch, you can't really be forgiven for having any lofty expectations on what your going too see.

Baring all that in mind, it mostly delivers on exactly what it promises, which is a slightly (or overly) ridiculous comedy about two women that have the hot's (definitely not love) for the same guy. It's simply a progression of dire events on this theme till conclusion where they all live happily ever after, and actually it's done quite well considering the plot they're working with.

Unfortunately it wasn't really my kind of film but I still found it moderately entertaining though somewhat cringe-worthy in certain places. It's funny, but not hilarious. I did have a handful of 'laugh out loud' moments which for me is always a good indication that the writers are doing a half decent job. When watching films like this you really have to keep things in context. Saying the acting/directing/production is terrible because the film is silly, even ridiculous, or just not 'you cup of tea' isn't always a fair assessment or worse, an accurate one. Here, the acting is actually quite good. Our main characters work well and produce pretty competent performances with what they are working with. There is good on-screen chemistry between them and at no point was I anything but utterly convinced I was immersed in this truly dire situation with them (god help me). In fact I'm probably being conservative when I say that the acting was just 'good'. The directing is also pretty good, as is production the comedic value and pretty much all else.

If you've gone to see something engaging with a well developed story that you get drawn into and can reflect on I will forgive your disappointment because this film isn't it. For the what its trying to achieve and the audience I believe it's aimed at, I think this one does quite well. I think it would be unfair of me to make a judgement on it outside of these constraints so this is why I have given it the score I have.

I probably wouldn't go see it on my own, but it wasn't a waste of my time doing so. I would recommend it though, because as a lighthearted flick it's OK and I know there are those of us who like this kind of film and would enjoy what this one has to offer.

very good film, immersive, fun and interesting watch
let me first say. maybe i am biased because every other review is pretty negative about this film and rating's also low and because of that i had really low expectations. on the other hand, i watched this film because i know that Dadario plays in good films(except Baywatch, everyone can be excused once i guess) so i expected this film to be also good

but i did really liked this movie. no one dragged me to watch it, i watched it on my own free will, for the reasons mentioned above and i enjoyed every moment of it. i emphasized every moment because it immerses you in itself quite well and you don't find any time to get bored. that is becoming more difficult in todays attention deficit world and not many films achieve it anymore, even ones with big names

also its fair to say that i didn't expect film to be super funny or comedic, so that was not an issue when not every scene tried to have comedic effect, although i think too much of them still did. usually i enjoy as much realism as you can put in the movie without loosing amusement. realism is very important, thats why i like GOT even though its fantasy, it has more realism than most of dramas these days. so this movie has lot of realism too, i believed in the journey that characters took throughout the movie. problems that they had were very real and relatable. how they approached them were very real, something like this can totally happen in real life. so in the end one can really see that writers did their jobs on this one

i cant really criticize this film that much, probably there were some flaws but i didn't notice them. only thing i can say is that some scenes were a bit exaggerated but thats not much of a criticism. so go see this movie, i recommend

A nice experience for home theater
There was a lot of natural acting done in this movie, and by natural i mean not over enhanced for viewing experience, by that i am saying that Kate Upton and Alexandra Daddario are very good actors, the only problem was that their acting was too real in a sort of way that puts the viewing experience off at times, but i had a lot of laughs and reactions to scenes so it was a good experience.

With that being said ill have to say that yes the scripting was really bad, they could have done a lot more to make this a good movie, the camera shots were good most times, and there is a fair amount of fan service as you may expect.

So its not really a cinema worthy movie for everyone, but i would still recommend it to be watched for the experience.

Two best friends find themselves fighting over a handsome man that they meet on a flight.
Okay, this movie is definitely not one of the best movies I've ever seen. But it also isn't as bad as some of the other reviews are trying to make it seem.

I watched The Layover on a boring afternoon because of Matt Barr (Gotta love Psycho Derek), Kate Upton, and Alexandra Daddario. With a cast like that, how could I resist? I loved Kate Upton in The Other Woman and hoped that this movie would be similar and even though it wasn't, I still liked it.

I enjoyed watching this movie very much. It's obviously crazy unrealistic. I mean, Meg and Kate are literally the worst best friends ever. And I kinda figured out that it would be Ryan's wedding in the end. It was still fun to watch though.

In conclusion, if you're bored and want something to make you laugh, watch this movie.
