  1. A third of the way into Soul Plane, maybe earlier if you're in the right mood or with the wrong company, you might actually start to enjoy disliking the movie. Like, say, Prince's "Purple Rain," certain Joan Crawford movies, and Leslie Nielsen at his best worst, the film inspires cathartic ridicule.

    A better- than-average comedy that is raunchy and tasteless but ultimately funny from beginning to end.
  3. A raunchy spoof of the disaster-movie lampoon Airplane! - does everything to get the laugh. And in the way that a broken watch is right twice a day, a shotgun comedy like this one occasionally hits its target.
  4. Starts out as an exuberant romp but soon gets trapped in a holding pattern of dumb sex and toilet jokes.

    This one-joke comedy vehicle is flying through a laugh-free zone.

    An hour and a half of real airplane turbulence is better than sitting through the bad, offensive material that makes up Soul Plane.

    Excruciating in the extreme, this is the nadir of urban comedies thus far: a trashy, crass, and painfully unfunny airline disaster of a film.

It tells the tale of Nashawn Wayne and his brand new airline, NWA. Be ready to hold your sides while Snoop Dogg, Method Man, and the whole gang take you to new, unparalleled, comedic heights.
