Critics and Reviews
The Layover is content to reduce women to predatory, conniving shrews who’re more concerned with how strangers view them than they are with treating their best friends with a bare minimum of respect. But a film like this isn’t really concerned with respecting women in the first place, which at least its makers are honest about. “Testes before besties” goes one of the taglines in the film’s theatrical trailer Full reviewDEREK SMITH
The Layover is an appalling movie – a reworked version of the essential plot elements of 2011’s Something Borrowed with everything worthwhile (and there wasn’t much to begin with) removed. The result is an unpleasant, unwatchable example of why people no longer love romantic comedies. Full reviewJames Berardinelli
Clueless and insipid, a paralyzing bore called The Layover is more girls-behaving-badly dreck about foxy, broke and recently unemployed bimbos trying to get laid. Maxing out their credit cards and cashing in their frequent flyer miles, roommates Kate (Alexandra Daddario) and Meg (Kate Upton) head for Fort Lauderdale looking for action, when a Category 4 hurricane detours their plane to St. Louis.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long should a layover be?
For peace of mind, particularly when connecting in a large city, try to schedule a layover of at least 60 minutes. If you have gate-checked items or are traveling with someone with special needs, extend your connection time to 90 minutes if possible.
Can you leave the airport on a layover on a domestic flight?
If you leave the airport on your layover, you’ll have to go through security to get to your second flight, but that should be the only long line you have to deal with. But if your layover is in another country, you will have to go through customs and immigration if you want to leave the airport.
What is the difference between a layover and a stop?
A layover typically refers to a connection point between cities, sometimes as short as 30 minutes or as long as 23 hours, whereas a stopover refers to staying longer than 24 hours in any given city when traveling internationally (on domestic itineraries, the limit is reduced to four hours).
