Overview

Brazilian filmmaker Bruno Barreto directs this comic look at the world of flight attendants starring Gwyneth Paltrow as Donna, a small town Nevada woman who dreams of seeing the world by becoming a first class international stewardess. Lacking the requisite poise and class, Donna finds a mentor in retired trade veteran Sally Candice Bergen, a wealthy, best-selling author who assists with advice and her considerable influence. Despite Sally's help, Donna finds the process of fulfilling her career ambitions more difficult than she imagined when she's betrayed by a trusted friend Christina Applegate during flight training, a daunting course taught by the bitter John Whitney Mike Myers, a once-aspiring steward whose eye condition kept him forever out of the friendly skies. Donna also faces a romantic crisis when she falls for a handsome law student Mark Ruffalo whose education consigns him to Ohio, far away from the major urban hubs Donna dreams of working. A View from the Top 2002 costars Rob Lowe, Josh Malina, Kelly Preston and Jon Polito.

    Best Mike Myers movie ever.

    I never thought Myers would top Austin Powers 2 or Waynes World but he managed too in this acting Tour De Force known as View from the Top. I did have one problem tough. If your going to have a movie about being on the top it should show how lonely it is. I am on the top of everything and Im lonely all the time but thats the price you pay for being so awesome. OH YEAH that part where Meyers goes on about emphasizing the worng sylable is over the top. Pun intended.

    Great Movie!

    This movie is so great! At first, I didn't want to see it, but my parents told me that I would like it. I DID!! it would make the top 5 on my favorite movie list. It is about Donna Jensen, a girl from Nevada, who doesn't discover her dream until she sees Sally Weston, the best flight attendent. This inspired Donna to become a flight attendent. Perfect songs that fit the movie great, comedy here and there, and a girl trying to achieve her dream! This is definatley on my Christmas list.
