Donna Jensen was raised literally and figuratively on the wrong side of the trailer park in Silver Springs, Nevada. She always believed it was her destiny to get out of Silver Springs. After reading Sally Weston's book, Sally who is arguably the most famous now ex-flight attendant in the world, Donna believes the path to leaving Silver Springs is to become a flight attendant despite never having been on an airplane. After an initial bumpy start to this career, Donna shows a natural flair for the job, so much so that she applies to work for world class Royal Airlines, where Sally Weston mentors. After meeting Donna, Sally believes Donna is destined for flight attendant greatness, namely working first class in the New York-Paris flights. Donna believes in herself as a flight attendant, but has to overcome some obstacles, including flight attendant trainer John Witney, who has some hidden anger issues, and her friend Christine Montgomery who also wants to be a great flight attendant ...

could have been one of the funniest, interesting movies of the year
i liked the premise - small-town girl makes it big as an airline
the costuming and set design suggested this could be a hip, trend-setting
movie. i love seeing women and men who seem different and invite
i like watching
Gwyneth Paltrow acting out the sincerity in her character.
but it sure seemed this script wasn't rewritten enough times - even
redirected. most of the other characters were introduced as a little
or sexy, but after that they became uninteresting, the tension or romance
between them didn't seem real. why introduce characters that never recur
mean anything in the end? why go to Paris or New York, and see it from the
inside of a room? it's as if the budget was being cut as each page of the
script was discovered to be unworkable material! by the end of the film,
felt sorry for most of stars who appeared in this. i think it could have
been one of the funniest, interesting movies of the year - i would love to
remake it as a real insight into the world of the airline
