    View from the Top is a (supposed) comedy about a smalltown girl who was always told that she was nothing and that she deserved nothing. Instead of doing nothing, however, she instead overcame these setbacks and became a first class, international flight attendant for a leading airline, Royalty Airlines. In the process of serving for the airline, she met the famous retired flight attendant that inspired her to achieve her goals in life, Sally Mason; encountered some difficulties with the people that she thought were her friends; and fell in love with one of her previous flight attendant friends\' boyfriend, Ted. Even though the 2003 comedy scored a 14% on Rotten Tomatoes, I thought that this was an excellent film and a great attestment to the message, \"Don\'t let anything stand in the way of your dreams.\"
