Storyline

Donna Jensen was raised literally and figuratively on the wrong side of the trailer park in Silver Springs, Nevada. She always believed it was her destiny to get out of Silver Springs. After reading Sally Weston's book, Sally who is arguably the most famous now ex-flight attendant in the world, Donna believes the path to leaving Silver Springs is to become a flight attendant despite never having been on an airplane. After an initial bumpy start to this career, Donna shows a natural flair for the job, so much so that she applies to work for world class Royal Airlines, where Sally Weston mentors. After meeting Donna, Sally believes Donna is destined for flight attendant greatness, namely working first class in the New York-Paris flights. Donna believes in herself as a flight attendant, but has to overcome some obstacles, including flight attendant trainer John Witney, who has some hidden anger issues, and her friend Christine Montgomery who also wants to be a great flight attendant ...

Goofs

At the time when Christine and Donna are fighting in the forward cabin of the aircraft, Donna is apparently the only member of the cabin crew onboard. The first passengers can be seen ready to board the aircraft at this point, and during the boarding stage all members of the cabin crew would be in the cabin. See more »

great looking Paltrow.
3 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie cant decide what it wants to be.It's not a Mike Myers comedy but spends an awful lot of time with Myers.It doesn't bother to develop any decent kind of romance for its main character but then takes too much time worrying about her romantic needs.It spends most of the script have the girls do stupid things and the rest has super glamorous Paltrow run around super glamorous hotels and European locations.I think this was meant to be a chic romantic comedy but the script revolted and tried for three stooges.If one likes Gwyneth its a must,she absolutely looks stunning here.Thats about the only reason to watch this.
