My friend says that View From The Top is a terrible movie. He is right, it is a piece of junk. Not even Hong Kong commercial movie legend Jing Wong could make a film as bad as this. But this doesn't mean that we should ignore it. Having seen many films of 'high artistic quality' recently, watching a movie as trashy as View From The Top helps us remaster the definition of ultimate screen rubbish. The genre is difficult to fathom. It takes off as a drama about Donna Jensen (Gwyneth Paltrow, above), who aims to be an uptown girl by becoming an international flight attendant. Then, just as we are settling into a career-girl movie, it switches to a cheesy romance when she falls in love with law school drop-out Ted (Mark Ruffalo). Director Bruno Barreto is totally lost, not just in the plot, but also the time frame. You cannot tell when the story is set - the outfits come from the 60s but the movie is scattered with scenes from Ghost (1990) and songs from the 80s by the fun-loving Cyndi Lauper. Then comes a song by Sixpence None The Richer, released last year. And there are other mysteries too. One of the screenplay writers, Eric Wald, allegedly wrote this script as a university assignment. So how did he get such a dull drama onto the big screen? And more importantly, how did Miramax lure Oscar winner Paltrow to get involved? And what is Mike Myers (Austin Powers) doing in the trivial role of flight attendant trainer? Even the trusty Sherlock Holmes might be baffled.
