I really like this movie. I thought it would be a lot like Pan Am but it isnt. I am happy about that because I thought this movie was better. It shows people that there isnt anything they cant do if they put they put their minds to it. It teaches studying for the dream of what you want to do in your life. I give it a 2 thumbs up.

Lighter than air? Yes. Unrealistic and sugar-coated? That too. Can't decide which decade it's supposed to be set in? True enough. A bit offensive to anyone with an ounce of feminist sensibility? I'm afraid so.
Here's the thing: I went to the theater expecting an hour and a half of so-bad-it's-good fluffball comedy, and really enjoyed "View From the Top" in spite of myself. The whole movie all but begs not to be taken seriously, which is probably the reason why it works as well as it does. Appropriately for a movie about the airline industry, this is pure escapism, in the well-worn motif of a trailer-park kid who decides she wants more out of life and, after a few mildly hard knocks, gets it. Donna, a store clerk somewhere in rural Nevada, decides on a career as a flight attendant on a lark after her boyfriend dumps her, and promptly sets her sights on the New York-to-Paris route despite a hilariously bumpy start in the business. Of course, this is America, and all Donna has to do is work hard, be patient and persistent, and look like Gwyneth Paltrow. (Casting Paltrow as trailer trash is about as convincing as you'd expect it to be, but her acting is great as usual.)
While the movie never really tries to be very serious, it will probably elicit a knowing nod or two from anyone who has suffered an unfair setback at work or felt like it was taking too long to climb the professional ladder. (In other words, it's the perfect comedy for today's job market!) The corollary plot about Donna's on again, off again relationship with her law-student boyfriend is a bit too treacly and old-fashioned to be really enjoyable, but the story's final twist resolves this in a cute, if utterly unconvincing, way.

This film wasn't realised in the UK (I think) so I had seen no trailers or promos for it. My mother simply brought home as a fun bit of fluff for a Saturday night, and that was pretty much what we got.
I was unable to work out whether the film was actually taking itself seriously, or whether it was a gigantic satire on the whole follow-your-dream/romantic comedy genre. At times it was really funny or enjoyably wacky - for instance, quite a few parts of the flight attendant training; Mike Myers's character, in general; the fight scene between Donna and Christina; but at other times it was sickly-sweet (nearly everything about following your dreams) or very, very sincere (Donna's relationship with Ted). So it was really hard to understand how you were meant to react.
Personally, I found the morals of the story cliched and irritating, and the Sally Weston character just another strong-mentor-person-thing; and Donna did come across as just a bit too smug/perfect at times. Also the plot was quite annoying, with characters fading out leaving you wondering what the point was of putting them in in the first place. I would have liked the movie better if it had been more focused on Donna's career and less on her romance, which was extremely predictable.
However, I'd recommend renting it if you're in the mood for something totally fluffy and silly; you like air hostesses in movies; you're a fan of Paltrow (who was very good) or Mike Myers; or you just want to see a movie that seems more than a little separated from reality...

View from the top is not too bad a movie.it's about a small town girl who dreams of leaving small town life behind and seeing the world.she eventually becomes a stewardess and lives her dream(sort of).i won't say anything more about the plot.i guess you call this movie a sort comedy/romance.i didn't find the movie wildly funny but it does have some amusing moments.Gwyneth Paltrow plays Donna,the main character.Mike Myers has a small,but pretty amusing role.Christina Applegate and Candice Bergen are also in the movie.Mark Ruffalo provides the romantic interest.i wouldn't go into this movie expecting to pee your pants laughing.if you do,you might be disappointed.but if you go in expecting some mildly amusing moments,and a fairly enetertaining story,then this movie should meet your expectations.my vote for View From The Top: 3/5
