  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.
  2. Has moments of inspiration, but the scattershot spoofing never achieves enough momentum to get this flight airborne.
  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.

    With its excessive sleaze and gross-out gags, Soul Plane overshoots effective spoofery. Mostly it's a foul, eye-rolling experience.

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

    This raucous comedy has fun for the whole family, as long as the whole family is 18 or older. 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.
    But at heart, this film is a classic love story. Young Nashawn has been kicked down his whole life. When he finally gets a chance to have everything heâ
