The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
A third of the way into Soul Plane, maybe earlier if you're in the right mood or with the wrong company, you might actually start to enjoy disliking the movie. Like, say, Prince's "Purple Rain," certain Joan Crawford movies, and Leslie Nielsen at his best worst, the film inspires cathartic ridicule.

San Francisco Chronicle
A better- than-average comedy that is raunchy and tasteless but ultimately funny from beginning to end.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A raunchy spoof of the disaster-movie lampoon Airplane! - does everything to get the laugh. And in the way that a broken watch is right twice a day, a shotgun comedy like this one occasionally hits its target.

Miami Herald
An idea whose time is long overdue, a tricked-out jumbo jet custom fit to meet the needs of today's savvy black traveler.

Premiere
Snoop's subtle performance in the captain's chair flips all the right switches, and Ryan Pinkston's timing as Arnold's "straight out of Malibu" son is perfect, but these two aren't enough to salvage the film.

Entertainment Weekly
If you're looking for comic insights beyond the well-documented ass differential between whites and blacks, well, golly, you ought to try another carrier.

The Hollywood Reporter
Starts out as an exuberant romp but soon gets trapped in a holding pattern of dumb sex and toilet jokes.
38
With its excessive sleaze and gross-out gags, Soul Plane overshoots effective spoofery. Mostly it's a foul, eye-rolling experience.

New York Post
This one-joke comedy vehicle is flying through a laugh-free zone.
38
When it's funny it's uproarious. Otherwise, you're crestfallen to discover that the movie is a relentless sucker punch to black entrepreneurship.

New York Daily News
Gross, nearly unwatchable comedy.
