A View From the Top

If you can buy prizewinning rose Gwyneth Paltrow as a girl raised in a trailer park, you'll probably enjoy this mild romantic comedy. On the rebound after being dumped by her high school sweetheart, Paltrow picks up a motivational book penned by a jet-setting stewardess (Candice Bergen) and winds up as a flight attendant in training. Mike Myers plays her walleyed instructor, who has framed pictures of himself with Peter Falk, Sammy Davis Jr., and Marty Feldman; goofy hunk Mark Ruffalo (You Can Count on Me) complements Paltrow nicely as her new beau, a bright law student whose ties to Cleveland conflict with her career ambitions. The tone seesaws between comic wackiness and romantic sincerity, with Paltrow better suited to the latter. Bruno Barreto (Doña Flor and Her Two Husbands) directed. 87 min.
