Good Actors/Bad Movies
Why do good actors make bad movies?
Granted, "View From the Top" is a few years old. But did Gwyneth Paltrow, Mike Myers and Candice Bergen REALLY need a paycheck that badly? Or did they read the script and REALLY think that watching small-town Donna Jensen chase her dream of becoming a flight attendant was funny?
Mark Ruffalo gets special dispensation. In 2003, co-starring with Paltrow was reason enough for him to make this stinker.
Note: the DVD extra about the history of flight attendants was totally engaging.
