Product Description

A comic look at the world of air-hostesses. Donna (Gwyneth Paltrow) lives in smalltown Nevada but has big dreams of seeing the world by becoming a first-class flight attendant. However, lacking in some of the finer skills to become one, she finds a mentor in Sally (Candice Bergen), a retired veteran turned best-selling author. Donna finds the going tough and when she falls for a law student (Mark Ruffalo) she has to make a hard decision; give up and follow him to Ohio or continue with her dream.

From Amazon.co.uk

An ingeniously campy and enormously entertaining piece of fluff, View from the Top stars the impossibly lithe Gwyneth Paltrow as Donna, a white-trash girl with dreams of escaping her dead-end life by becoming an international flight attendant. Her destiny is complicated by a sweet guy (Mark Ruffalo) who just wants to live with his family in Cleveland and by a sister stewardess (Christina Applegate) who stabs Donna in the back. View from the Top doesn't take itself seriously, yet takes itself just seriously enough--Donna and the rest of the characters treat their absurdly candy-coloured world as if it mattered. As Donna experiences the world and improves her fashion sense, the result is both hilarious and hilariously touching. It also features Mike Myers, Kelly Preston, and Candice Bergen as Donna's visionary mentor. --Bret Fetzer

I like a good comedy film that has a point to it and this movie delivers that. Gwyneth Paltrow is perfect as usual and her character reminded me a little of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde.

The concept of a woman pursuing a career as a flight attendant seemed funny to me in itself but it actually had me thinking of a career change myself!

I was sorry to see the last of Kelly Preston's character in the film, they could have at least included her in the ending.

And speaking of the ending, I liked the fact that we were given a warm fuzzy happily ever after, but was not so sure that Donna ended up sacrificing everything she had ever wanted and Ted did not have to give up anything.

They have lawyers in New York as well as Cleveland, i felt there should have been a compromise on both parts.

However, this is a good movie to watch if you're on your own and feeling a bit lonely and in need of a funny watch.

Special mentions go to Mike Myers and Candice Bergen who seems to make elegence and class look effortless in her movies.

Highly recommend this movie.

Aside fom the obvious yumminess of him, Ms. Paltrow always delights no matter what her role. This is a charming film. I especially liked Joshua Malina as the male flight attendant. I don't know if my laughter was genuine but I know my enjoyment was.

This is one of those films that you'd like to see released on blu-ray but hasn't yet, but nonetheless good quality for a DVD.

I think this film was absoultely fab! I didn't expect it to be brilliant as i had never heard of it before and there hadn't been any advertising. I actually watched it in desperation as there were no other films but it ended up being one of my favourite films ever! Gwenyth Paltrow acts brilliantly giving the film a classy edge and Mike Myers, freaky as he may be definitely brings in the laughs! I would reccomend this film to anyone and would like to say that it is way under stated and is worth the watch!

WOW. i've gotta say, i've just watched this film for the third time and i love it. It is such an amazing film. it's so funny and it's a real feel good movie.
the only not good things i've gotta say are that Mike Myers, strange as it may be' is not that good in this film. it's almost like he's trying so hard to be funny that he acctually just comes accross as boring. the other thing is some scenes i've seen on trailers for the film arnt acctually in the movie.
deffinatly bye this movie if you like movies that make you feel happy

I quite like to film. but I believe it had so much more potential. finished too abruptly I think. If I remember rightly the picture of the box does not even show up on the film.

I wouldn't watch this film again so it is very average.Having said that if you're thinking of becoming an air hostess or like seeing sexy women wearing colourful costumes or you like Mike Meyers sense of humour ( I don't - he was austin powers - I didn't like that either! )then perhaps The View From The Top is for you.
Overall an average film with above average actors in it:gwyneth paltrow,candice bergen,mark ruffalo, christina applegate and others.
Plane spotters will love the photography of the planes flying above the wilderness.
