Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Soul Plane's concept is a pretty simple one -- an urbanized take on Airplane! featuring some of the hottest rappers, stars, or rappers-turned-stars than any airline ever had seating for! Well, as this movie proves, concept can only take you so far in the world of comedy. There are definitely some laughs in this sucker, but far and wide, the majority of the gags fall flat rather than actually sticking. Plenty of talent was obviously gathered, with each King or Queen of Comedy throwing their back out with their deliveries, it's just that they deserve better material than what they're given. Also obvious is that director Jessy Terrero needs more time behind the camera and in front of the classics before he truly understands how to pull off even the smallest of gags from the anemic script. There are a few points where it's shocking how bad the staging and pacing of certain jokes are -- and this is physical comedy, folks! You either do it right or don't do it at all. What genius that's there lies mostly in the production design and set decoration of the Soul Plane itself. From the ghetto overhead locker compartments in the low-class section to the outrageous club on the top floor, the plane deserves every laugh that it will surely get. Yes, it's a breezy time at the movies and you will laugh from time to time -- the fact still remains that Soul Plane has more missed opportunities than slam-dunks. With a tighter script, less wandering ad-libbing, and a stronger focus on exactly what the film was before it was cast, this could've been a laugh riot. If you buy a ticket, just don't be surprised if it's a bumpy flight.

Kept me laughing, and the ladies are smokin.

I liked this movie. It's worth a see maybe twice in your life. The unrated version is pretty funny, too. It is so predictable, though. And the way it is set up-a purple airplane, only one white family aboard on the plane- is also predictable. I mean, right when those white people got on the plane, I knew they were about to say something about being the only white people on it. The purple airplane going up and down like a car would do, was pretty stupid. That plane looked fake, but other than that, it is pretty good. I wasted & dolllars to see it, I might as well waste 20 to buy it.

'Soul Plane' was a really good movie to just laugh at and have fun watching while your in whatever mood.

I would recommend this movie for adults only to enjoy when you just want a good belly aching laugh. The content and cast where thought thru well and I would enjoy this time and time again.

Careless, shoddy filmmaking. Unfunny and crass with no hint of wit.

Ow ow ow, it hurts so bad. Look at all of these people on a purple plane, some of whom are naked. I watched this film while trying to be happy. It did not work. In fact, I had a Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome Flashback of Vietnam. Snoop Dogg was my copilot. If you enjoy this film, kill yourself. I kid, I kid. No I don't. Do it. Your car's exhaust fumes are calling your name......
