Comedy
From serving bologna and cheese in a form-fitting fluorescent lyrcra suit to serving champagne and caviar in chic poly-blend attire, the stewardess from Hole in the Wall, USA takes to the skies in this screwball comedy by the film’s pilot, Bruno Barreto. Gwyneth Paltrow stars as the former trailer-trash trick who follows her dreams with some turbulence when she befriends a back-stabbing flirt with kleptomaniac tendencies and a cross-eyed drill sergeant from flight attendant school. But soon the naïve small-town girl realizes she can’t always go through life with her seatbelt fastened low and tight across her lap, so she compromises her superficial service with a smile to stand up for herself and become the poised prima donna of First-Class International of her fantasies. With the foot-stomping ’80s soundtrack, Mike Myers' zany off-the-wall comedy, the entertaining retro look and Paltrow’s captivating on-screen presence, View From the Top manages to maintain its cruising altitude without making an emergency crash landing.
