Storyline

A typical 80's teen pseudo-sex comedy. A group of varied misfits (including a former prostitute/stripper and a bumbler who can't see more than 6 inches in front of his face) enter a school to become flight attendants. Somehow, the group makes it through to the final test: a cross-country flight. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Soars like a turkey...
3 August 1999 | by Mister-6See all my reviews

Judy Landers - Stewardess.

No, her career hasn't finally upturned. But it should have, thanks in no small part to "Stewardess School", which tries to be the "Police Academy" of airline training movies.

I'll let that sink in for a minute.

Ready? Okay, let's go on.

Not only does the bustier of the Landers sisters have a part in this fiasco, but so does Don "Donny" Most (Ralph Malph from "Happy Days"), Wendie Jo Sperber (Amy from "Bosom Buddies") and Mary Cadorette (Whatever-her-Name-Was from that "Three's Company" spinoff...you didn't know there was a "Three's Company" spinoff? All the sadder). It even had Sherman Helmsley (George Jefferson from "The Jeffersons"). If not for the nudity, crudity and language, this could have been one of those movies NBC makes for sweeps week. It had the talent (long, drawn-out throat clearing).

If you've seen any "Police Academy", you've seen "Stewardess School". And it ain't as funny, either. You didn't think "Police Academy" was funny? Then you may want to rent something a little funnier than this film. Like, say, "Platoon"?

One star. No redeeming laughs. No funny situations. No wonder Mary Cadorette hasn't done more films.

When are they going to learn you don't do these films without Leslie Nielsen?
