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

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 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.

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

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.

This sweet little comedy is a coming-of-age, small-town-girl-makes-good saga. ... Rooting for an underdog that you expect will win is always satisfying even if the result is never really in doubt.

A light airplane comedy that's actually funny.

Not everything about this movie worked for me, but I loved its colorful costumes as well as Paltrow's appealing performance.

The heart of it is Paltrow. She plays a regular gal with the witty panache of a star.

Paltrow is lovable in the right roles, and here she's joined by two others who are sunny on the screen: Candice Bergen, as the best-selling flight attendant who becomes her mentor, and Mark Ruffalo.

Will there be setbacks for her to be plucky about? Will there be a dreamboat to make it hard to take that dream job when it does come through? Will there be comic relief? Oh, so you've seen this movie before? Me, too.
| Original Score: C+

View From the Top" is a lightweight low-calorie after-dinner comedy eliciting smiles rather than belly laughs.
