Movie Info

After an excruciatingly humiliating in-flight experience that culminated in a messy breakup and the untimely death of a dog, Nashawn Wade (Kevin Hart) sues the airline for all it's worth. This turns out to be a more than profitable move on his part; the lawsuit brings him a settlement in the hefty amount of 600 million dollars. Eager to prevent his experience from happening to another -- and perfectly willing to reap the financial benefits of the cash cow he believes his plan to be -- Nashawn

Long before landing, the movie's tireless minstrel-show mentality sends it into a nosedive.

This nearly plotless movie follows the maiden voyage of NWA (a moniker that seems to be the extent of the film's wit) through a torrent of stale ghetto jokes in the vein exhausted years ago by the Wayans brothers.

An hour and a half of real airplane turbulence is better than sitting through the bad, offensive material that makes up Soul Plane.

Makes up for what it lacks in genuine humor by overdosing viewers with outrageous sexuality and outsize stereotypes.

Sloppy, uneven, vulgar, lowbrow and often very funny, Jessy Terrero's debut movie might be called Airport Car Wash Scary Movie.

No doubt Soul Plane sounds more offensive than it is when seen. That doesn't make it more than passable burlesque, but burlesque has its place, too.

Raunchy comedy for adults only.

Soul Plane is like seeing an uncomfortably unfunny stand-up comedy routine acted out and stretched to a feature-length film.

September 29, 2006 Full Review Source:

Surprisingly enough (in fact, I am shocked), this film gets a lot of laughs.

June 26, 2005 Full Review Source: FromTheBalcony's hard not to be offended by a sequence in which an Arab man boards the airplane - much to the shock and horror of everyone around him.

How best to explain a film this mean-spirited, this unfunny--this dispiriting?

A s******ing style of humour that might have seemed funny in theory, but virtually nothing sparks on screen.

Nothing more than racial stereotype after racial stereotype.

Come back the Wayans Brothers, all is forgiven. Even Scary Movie 2.

August 19, 2004 Full Review Source: BBC

Cries out for the guiding hand of one of the Zucker Brothers or, even better, a genuine satirist like John Ridley, who wrote the subversive Undercover Brother.

The Airplane! formula gets reworked as a raunchy sendup of black racial stereotypes, but the movie has an aura of bad sketch comedy.

June 16, 2004 Full Review

Uneven, but often very funny.... When it spoofs black culture, the movie connects solidly.

Outrageous and sporadically funny [but] just wait for video.

The lesson of Soul Plane: Being white is so much less fun than being black.

Stoners will enjoy; everyone else should stay home and watch "Chappelle's Show".

...a hideous hip hop spoof of the most disposable kind. This is the worst kind of racial rubbish suited appropriately for the barf bag.

The makers of Soul Plane simply have no taste -- and they try to make up for it by demonstrating that they also have no talent.

The writers should be ashamed of themselves, not only for a lazy script that staggers between brain dead crudity and cheap sentiment but for reinforcing infinite stereotypes.

Audience Reviews for Soul Plane

one of the stupidest movies i've seen in my life but oddly entertaining.
June 7, 2007

Super Reviewer

One of the more ridiculous films I've ever seen. When it comes to "airplane comedies", the original "Airplane" from the 70's comes to mind. This to me is the industry standard and any aviation comedy that is released will be judged in comparison. "Soul Plane" has some entertaining moments and the idea of a tripped out plane is cool at first, but it wears out its welcome quickly. I did like watching Sofia Vergara...what man wouldn't? :)

I had the extreme misfortune to watch this. It is in my list of the worst 5 movies ever (Juno tops it). It is not funny at all and is boring as hell. My brother and mum think it's hilarious, but they're idiots.
