How do travelers unwind when jetting off for vacation? By tuning into a couple hours of cheesy comedies. Super cheesy comedies.
A recent study by Hawaiian Airlines showed that passengers flying on their North American routes to and from Hawaii preferred watching “The Other Woman” (starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton) over any other title.
The chick flick — which earned a mere 23 percent on Rotten Tomatoes — beat out Oscar-nominations like “Boyhood” on Hawaiian Airlines’ selection of in-flight entertainment.
Out of Hawaiian Airlines’ top five most-watched movies (listed below) only one was an action flick. Apparently, most travelers prefer to start and end their trip to paradise with a laugh.
