Critics Consensus

Uneven in tone and badly edited, A View From the Top wastes the talents of its cast and condescends to its characters.

    It's like someone wrote my True LIfe story, except in my story, the airlines wouldn't hire me. Because I failed the personality test. Whatever, United! I would have been great! A movie for wanna-be flight attendants who should have been pilots.

    I thought this movie was so much fun to watch. You get to know about the lives of three stewardesses who work for a low budget company. One of the stewardesses wants more and struggles to get to top of the business. The movie is very easy going and funny.

    A bad movie that's not without its good moments, but one that just clunks along from head-scratcher to head-scratcher. Mike Myers's character is quite funny, and Gwyneth Paltrow does ok, but they have nothing to work with.

    I never knew how bitchy Applegate could get, but her portrayal of a true frenemy to Paltrow definitely became the acting highlight of the film.
