It never comes to life. It rarely even reaches the level of cute.

The Christina Applegate renaissance is in serious jeopardy.

A mediocre diversion -- a movie better watched at home where the remote control can be used (if necessary) to fast forward to the film's best part: the obligatory end credit outtakes.

Even though there are funny people like Mike Myers making cameos (payback for Paltrow's brilliant cameo in "Goldmember") this comedy about a budding stewardess just doesn't take off.

A flat, superficial comedy that never establishes a tone.

A mild, genial comedy that nobody will love and nobody will hate.

Quite empty with hardly any laughs, a terribly cliched romance subplot, and just plain nothing going on.

Stinks like it was made by rank amateurs, and particularly incompetent ones, at that.

Bruno Barreto's lead pipe comedy. Gwyneth, why?

It's meant to be funny. It's not, or not particularly. It's meant to be cute. Maybe it is, but I hate cute. It's meant to be harmless fluff. It is. All of this isn't terribly interesting.

Worth commenting on only for its shocking ineptitude.

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.

Somewhere in the midst of Mike Meyers' outrageously floaty eye is a grown up satire waiting to get out.

Such a godawful mess that you honestly can't tell if it was meant to be a comedy or not.

...as tasty as two-day old stale airline cuisine and just as imaginative...this fuel-injected ruse leaves its inherent frothy perkiness on the runway...this particular plane trip is missing its creative turbulence.

The new Bruno Barreto film, "View from the Top," is a light yet bruising comedy about flight attendants, which should stand as an immediate warning to them and also to anyone planning to fly in the coming weeks. Indeed, just try getting some warm nuts and

Another comedy that is instantly forgotten about on arrival. Something seen time after time that isn't close to a near-miss, will land on video soon enough and is barely worthy of a pick-up.

The one scene of interviews with aspiring stewardesses in last year's Catch Me If You Can is exponentially funnier than every little laugh in this entire movie all put together.
