About the Movie
Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow (SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, Best Actress, 1998; SHALLOW HAL) stars in this hilarious comedy, about a small-town girl who's about to get a taste of the big-time world! No one thought Donna (Paltrow) would go very far. But when she sets her sights on becoming a first-class international flight attendant, Donna throws caution to the wind and takes off in pursuit of her dream! The ride is anything but smooth, however, and Donna's laugh-packed journey of a lifetime is rocked by more turbulence than she bargained for! Also starring Christina Applegate (TV's "Married With Children"), Rob Lowe (AUSTIN POWERS TRILOGY, TOMMY BOY), Kelly Preston (WHAT A GIRL WANTS, JERRY MAGUIRE) and Candice Bergen (SWEET HOME ALABAMA, MISS CONGENIALITY), this charmingly funny treat will send your spirits soaring!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: What might fly as a skit on SNL never leaves the runway on the screen as Brazilian director Bruno Barreto and first-time screenwriter Eric Wald set the cast on a desperate search for laughs.
Rotten: Given that its wings have been severely clipped since it finished lensing two years ago, View From the Top flubs nearly every opportunity to be the comedy it wanted to be.
Rotten: A flat, superficial comedy that never establishes a tone.
Rotten: Eventually, the exhaust roar of condescending affirmation drowns all else out.
Surprisingly funny, feel good movie
This movie was bashed by all the critics out there I had a low expectation when I first saw this movie.
But I found myself enjoying its light hearted comedy, feel good/fuzzy story about a girl who seemingly had no future getting to travel all over the world.

A small town girl with a trashy trailer mom wants more from life and one day after breaking up with her boyfriend she decided to pursue her dreams. She decided to left town and apply to a Flight attendant job at a local airline, and that open the gateway to true success and true love. Great movie!!
I have to agree for once with the critics. The whole entire movie you waited for something interesting to happen but nothing ever did. there was no plot development what so ever. You could never really relate with any of the characters ever. It makes you wonder who had the guts to actually make this movie!
