Miss Paltrow? We're gonna need that Oscar back.

[A]n airy bit of fluff, a soap bubble of a movie.

Teeters on the edge of lightweight, bland fare more associated with what's on airline menus. But the cast adds flavor and energy to the otherwise unremarkable itinerary.

Not even cameos by Rob Lowe as a copilot, Chad Everett as Sally's Weston's husband, or George Kennedy as an airline passenger can rev up this plummeting plane wreck.

A flat, superficial comedy that never establishes a tone.

O filme pode até não ser uma obra-de-arte, mas está longe de ser o desastre que muitos anunciaram. Ao menos, ele diverte.

It's a pity...that such a first-class cast is forced to fly economy in this aimless exercise that never knows its destination.

It aggressively browbeats you into enjoying it while it's on, even if it's the sort of movie that evaporates from memory once the lights come up.

If you're looking to spend a couple of hours in first class, View from the Top is definitely not the ticket.

The Christina Applegate renaissance is in serious jeopardy.

Paltrow cannot begin to save this unfunny flight attendant comedy that should have gone direct to video.

The experience of watching this movie is a lot like commercial air travel: the flight attendants try to make your experience as pleasant as possible, but it's still a long, dull ride in a small seat.

There's really nothing in any of it worth dwelling on, so flat is the writing, so plastic are the performances. . . as it flails for a substance that it will never achieve.

The characters have no wit or charm, the plot has no conflict or development, nothing happens for any reason other than script requirements.

Barreto concentrates on character development over cutesy shtick, and his cast rewards him with a fleet of charming performances.

Sometimes it's fun to see a movie that doesn't require any thought.

It's just sweet and light, but it's got kind of giddy charm to it ...

The perfect kind of escapist movie to see in a time of war and terrorist attacks.

Mike Myers tries to save this "View..." but, to this task, even Austin Powers would fail.
