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: 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.
Rotten: The characters have no wit or charm, the plot has no conflict or development, nothing happens for any reason other than script requirements.
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.
lost it's humor in the editing
I watched this movie ages ago, and remember thinking that it really fell flat. The out takes show that there were some really funny scenes- but they all seemed to get cut from the movie. So it was a completely uninteresting drama.
No action movie where everything is blasted to get a thrill. This is just a good light hearted, dreamer, determination, somewhat comedy movie. Highly recommend for those who want spontaneous life style.
