Editorial Reviews

Academy Award®-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow (Shakespeare In Love, Best Actress, 1998; Shallow Hal ) stars in this hilarious comedy hit 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!

I read a review of this movie when it came to the theaters that just completely tore it apart from oepning frame to closing. Thus, I avoided seeing it for all of the right reasons. However, the genre of film is one of my boyfriend's favorites, and as a favor to him, rented this little movie for a quick Saturday afternoon's entertainment. What I found was a quirky, fun, funny movie that, if you don't take it all too seriously, you can seriously warm to.
Gwyneth Paltrow plays Donna, a girl with stars and the skies in her eyes. Donna longs for a better life than her small town girlhood in Silver Springs. Hooking up with a small commuter airline, Donna starts her career in the air. In one short but pivotal scene, she is dissed by a trio of snooty flight atttendants, which fires her upward. Soon, she moves up to a major airlines, but first, has to endure the training process, run by the ever funny Mike Meyers.
Complication besets complication, but no worries, this is a film whose plot is secondary to the likabillity of its characters. You know about the ending, but the time spent with these people is entertaining. Turning in great performances is the hugely underused Kelly Preston, Christina Applegate as a ditsy coworker, wonderful Candice Bergan as a flight attendant extraordinaire, and the lovable Mark Ruffalo, playing a has-it-together guy, finally.
Much disdain has been heaped on this movie, perhaps by people intending to take it much more seriously than was its intention. Citizen Kane its not, but a lighthearted time spent in the skies. As we follow Donna on her journey of self-revelation, we root for her and all of her friends as well. So sit back, make sure your tray table is locked, and this time, you don't have to locate your nearest exits, with a View from the Top.

View From the Top is not as bad a many people would have you believe. In fact, it's quite entertaining. First of all, don't take it seriously, because it's just a fluff romantic comedy. If you keep that in perspective, you'll really enjoy this film.

The story is centered around Donna, a woman from the trailer parks of Nevada who hopes to escape from the type of life her mother leads. She thinks she has found the ticket in the high school quarterback who promises to take her places, but in the end, he dumps her. In a fit of depression, she ends up watching daytime TV in a bar, and she sees the interview of a famous flight attendant. Her dreams take off from there as she struggles to make her dreams come true.

The only weak point in this film is Mike Meyers who places the flight attendant trainer. Some of his jokes fall flat and at times it seems he is recycling some of his Dr. Evil character. Other than that, I think you'll enjoy this. Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Gwyneth Paltrow was great as Donna, the main character who dreams of one day being an international flight attendant. Maybe this wasn't her best role, but I certainly enjoyed her performance. The other characters were all good too: Christina Applegate, Candice Bergen, Kelly Preston, Mark Ruffalo (Donna's future boyfriend), and Rob Lowe (although he was only in a few scenes). The characters I liked the best were the gay flight attendant and Mike Myers (that was a nice surprise after being tired of his "Austin Powers" gags). The weakest part about this movie was probably the script, which could have been better. Still the actors made the most of what material they were given, and I was pleasantly surprised by the movie in general. I laughed and felt good walking out of the theater. Who could ask for anything more?

Format: DVD
How this movie adds up to more than the sum of its parts is difficult to explain without seeing it, but suspend disbelief (and pocket that cineaste elitism for a mo') and read on ...

First, Gwyneth Paltrow can do white trash girl with a heart of gold really, really well, as she's proven in other films (Duets comes to mind). She's got a great range. The woman won an Oscar, remember? She didn't grab the statue for this movie, but she's got the chops and she runs away with the role of Donna, the trailer park girl from Nevada with big dreams.

Second, Christina Applegate is deliciously duplicitious in the role of her friend and protege, and is proof that trash in Chanel's clothing is still ... well, trash. Then again, standing next to Gwyneth Paltrow, who isn't going to look somewhat less-than? (OK, so I'm biased. This is my disclaimer).

Third, Mike Meyers as flight attendant trainer? How funny is this? Do you love Mike Meyers? Why haven't you seen this movie yet? Not optional. A MUST OWN. He is high-larious, and the bloopers at the end of the movie are worth the price of a rental alone. ("I am a kitten ... ")

Fourth: The writing. No, not the plot, which is predictably formulaic and fairly predictable. What makes this movie pop like Jiffy is the way these actors take it and make it their own. What comes through loud and clear is how much fun these folks were having making this film. It is a romp! View From The Top could well have been called "Over The Top" because in some ways it is.

If the Farrelly Brothers has been Farrelly Sisters and made a kinder, gentler romantic comedy, I think this is precisely the kind of movie they'd have made.

I love it. So sue me. It's a riot, and it's heart warming to boot.
