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.

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

You keep wanting to dismiss "View from the Top" as a total fluff piece, but then something keeps happening to make you think that it is not that bad. After all, at the heart of this movie is Gwyneth Paltrow, and we might not really believe that she is a white trash trailer park girl, but we never forget this is Gwyneth Paltrow. More importantly, this is not Gwyneth Paltrow the drama queen, but one who gets to spend most of the film being adorable (without an English accent), and she can be pretty adorable (especially without an English accent).
"View from the Top" walks a fine line, because on the one hand we have some over the top scenes courtesy of Mike Myers as Flight Attendant Guru John Whitney, Josh Malina as Randy Jones male Flight Attendant, and Rob Lowe as co-pilot Steve Bench. Then we get back to Gwyneth as Donna, the girl with a dream, and it is almost like being in another movie. So there is a comic side and a serious side to this movie, just like there is the career plot line and the romance plot line between Donna and Ted (Mark Ruffalo), and just like Donna has her good friend Sherry (Kelly Preston) and her not so good friend Christine (Christina Applegate).
But the person who ends up being the lynch pin of this film is Donna's mentor and flight attendant godmother, Sally Weston, played by Candice Bergen. You keeping thinking Murphy Brown is going to make an appearance at any moment, but Sally Weston is exactly who she seems to be and as good as gold. She might be perky and the queen of stewardesses, but the lady is not stupid. You keep thinking this movie is going to turn into some sort of mindless romp about flight attendants, but it never sinks to that level.

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.

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.
