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 ...

Donna Jensen: I just worry if I really fall in love with Ted, what's going to happen to everything I've worked so hard for?
Randy: OK, fine, don't fall in love with him.
Donna Jensen: That's kinda where I'm having the problem.
Randy: It just takes willpower, is all. I mean, you didn't fall in love with me, did you?

A nice romantic comedy in 2003...
6 October 2003 | by kayabaySee all my reviews

I do not agree with the Imdb people on giving a 5 out of ten for this beautiful movie of romance. One of the best in 2003. Actually I do not like soap operas & avarage romantic comedies, but this one stunned me. Both the movie, the soundtrack is soft and fun. Gwyneth Paltrow is successful and on her good days again. I've watched the movie twice in DVD and though I don't like Mike Myers a lot ( he's been in some silly comedies for sure. ) he is also very good in the movie. He's found his way out. I advise this movie to everyone who likes romance. 7 out of 10.
