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 ...

For the number of big stars in this movie, I'm surprised more care wasn't taken to ensure it wasn't so horrible.
The movie starts out promising, with kind of a campy nostaligic feel, but soon progresses into crapland. The script is awful, and it seems like the actors know it. Hearing Gwyneth Paltrow say "what about your hickeys?" in any context is just wrong. And Christina Applegate's acting style fit in on Married with Children, but that's because she was SUPPOSED to act poorly. On a feature film, that approach doesn't work. Mike Myers just should not be in this movie. His character is poorly thought out, and he just pulls out the same old shtick to compensate for a stupid character.
This movie gave me that same sinking feeling I got when watching "Cellular". I knew it was just going to get worse and worse, that's what bad movies do.
I gave this movie 3 stars. I don't know why I gave it that many. Maybe because Gwyneth looks good.
