Why just fly when you can soar with soul? After a humiliating experience on an airplane, Nashawn Wade sues the airline and is awarded a huge settlement. Determined to make good with the money, he creates the full service airline of his dreams--complete with sexy stewardesses, funky music and a hot onboard dance club. Departing from the all new Terminal X in Los Angeles, this voyage gives "Fly" a whole new meaning, taking its passengers on its comical maiden voyage.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Long before landing, the movie's tireless minstrel-show mentality sends it into a nosedive."
‑ Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly
"Makes up for what it lacks in genuine humor by overdosing viewers with outrageous sexuality and outsize stereotypes."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Raunchy comedy for adults only."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"'s hard not to be offended by a sequence in which an Arab man boards the airplane - much to the shock and horror of everyone around him."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Nothing more than racial stereotype after racial stereotype."
‑ Bill Beyrer,
"This nearly plotless movie follows the maiden voyage of NWA (a moniker that seems to be the extent of the film's wit) through a torrent of stale ghetto jokes in the vein exhausted years ago by the Wayans brothers."
‑ Joshua Land, Village Voice
"Sloppy, uneven, vulgar, lowbrow and often very funny, Jessy Terrero's debut movie might be called Airport Car Wash Scary Movie."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Soul Plane is like seeing an uncomfortably unfunny stand-up comedy routine acted out and stretched to a feature-length film."
‑ Eric Melin,
"How best to explain a film this mean-spirited, this unfunny--this dispiriting?"
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Come back the Wayans Brothers, all is forgiven. Even Scary Movie 2."
‑ Jamie Russell,
"An hour and a half of real airplane turbulence is better than sitting through the bad, offensive material that makes up Soul Plane."
‑ Sara Gebhardt, Washington Post
"No doubt Soul Plane sounds more offensive than it is when seen. That doesn't make it more than passable burlesque, but burlesque has its place, too."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"Surprisingly enough (in fact, I am shocked), this film gets a lot of laughs."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"A s******ing style of humour that might have seemed funny in theory, but virtually nothing sparks on screen."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Cries out for the guiding hand of one of the Zucker Brothers or, even better, a genuine satirist like John Ridley, who wrote the subversive Undercover Brother."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
