Obvious cash grab

First off all I would like to say that people who complain about things being offensive are the worst . Everything can be turned into comedy gold . This movie isn't offensive , it's just lazy . It's 90 minutes of product placement occasionally joined by overused jokes about race , sex and of course farts .

Not Ready For Takeoff

While putting in the efforts of spoofing the 1970 film classic "Airport", "Soul Plane" freely utilizes stereotypical jive lingo as an homage to 1970's blaxploitation films has its share of slightly amusing moments, but the final product falls flat and is quite tedious in terms of detail. The story tells the tale of sadly unlucky airplane passenger Nashawn Wade (Kevin Hart) who's had the worst airplane flight of his lifetime. His dog was regarded as checkout baggage, the food on the flight was gross, plus his behind was stuck in the crapper during turbulence and if that's not enough, his dog gets sucked into the jet engine due to a stewardesses carelessness. Nashawn sues the the airline with a whopping amount of money of close to $100 million and it was granted to him. With that amount of restitution, he establishes his own airline company, the NWA (Nashawn Wade Airlines). The abbreviations have a certain wink to something straight out of Compton. The airline caters to African-Americans and the hip-hop lifestyle. Even the terminal is named Malcolm X and the airlines come complete with hydraulics, spinners and a dance club. Surely Nashawn shouldn't have another troubled airplane ride. Right? And don't call him Shirley.

In the spoof of disaster film "Airport", "Airplane!" went all in in lampooning all the seriousness that "Airport" possessed. They showed no apologies to its audience who felt offended by saying you can't be serious all the time. Fun should play an important role in life and I couldn't agree more. What made "Soul Plane" irksome was that it was lampooning a a film that' already a parody of another film which makes everything seem odd and really out of place. The sentiments in this film is handled with a superficial texture in the script that is only manifested by its insensitive approach which seems very accepted in its delivery.

The gratingly long scene in "Soul Plane" deals with Nashawn's awkward moment while he's stuck on the toilet and the loss of his dog plus the overlong court case settlement. At first glance, screenwriters Chuck Wilson and Bo Zenga seem to be aiming towards a human emotional comedy where we do take pity for Nashawn and his misfortunes. But this scene is only just a small detour for "Soul Plane" to fall into an array of politically incorrect humour and scenes that truly generate laugh out loud moments. Even though Nashawn's misfortunes tend to go on for too long, it's easily one of the funniest scenes in the movie. Once the NWA gets under fruition, everything is just over-the-top and tedious.

What differs "Soul Plane" from "Airplane!" is that the focal characters are around the passengers as opposed to the crew. The only exception is around NWA flight Captain Antoine Mack (Snoop Dogg) as he's trying to overcome his fear of heights. A stewardess named Blanca (Sofia Vergara) get into the melee where one of the more famous tropes to the disaster film has to have a civilian to eventually save the day. Most of the film's plot seems to veer vaguely into the lives of the other people on the plane. The only Caucasian family on the flight are the Hunkees (racist humour right?). Any film that stars are more calmer Tom Arnold character (who plays Elvis Hunkee) does get some credit for doing a very good deed.

Though he he has starred in bigger and better things in his career, Kevin Hart has claimed that "Soul Plane" was pivotal in the jump-start of his career and to his credit he does deliver a serviceable acting job. Sadly the film was just poorly submitted that it just wastes the talent here who poured their heart out in making the film work. This is one film that wasn't ready for takeoff.

soulless

This is a disgraceful movie. I'm black and I couldn't believe what I was watching. The plot, acting, direction & jokes are horrendous. And the stereotypes...The least said about them the better.

At the beginning of this film, despite it being boring, I was actually hoping that it would pick up a bit of momentum. Kevin Hart doesn't play the typical small guy that starts trouble type role in this movie like how he does nowadays. His character gets a load of money and starts his own airline, NWA. Yeah, that's what it's called(!) Anyway, all was going good for me until the white family were introduced as the "Hunkie Family". It was then I knew what kind of film I was going to watch.

I only joke I laughed at was the Malcolm X Terminal. That was it. I can't believe such an abomination was allowed to put out to the world. Black movies shouldn't only just be serious and powerful stuff like "Boyz N The Hood", "Juice" & "Menace II Society". There should be funny stuff but not this! I advise everyone to stay away from this movie. You're gonna waste sweet precious time of your life that you'll never get back.
