QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Various passengers and crew members take the inaugural flight on the first black-themed airline.
PLOT:
After winning $100 million in a court case against an airline, unsuccessful entrepreneur Nashawn Wade (KEVIN HART) suddenly decides that he's going to open the world's first black-themed airline. With the help of his cousin Muggsy (METHOD MAN) who hires laidback pilot Captain Mack (SNOOP DOGG) and his more uptight African co-pilot, Gaeman (GODFREY), as well as flight attendants Blanca (SOFIA VERGARA), Flame (GARY ANTHONY WILLIAMS) and Tamika (ANGELL CONWELL), and bathroom attendant Johnny (D.L. HUGHLEY), the group prepares for their inaugural flight.

Among their passengers is Mr. Hunkee (TOM ARNOLD), his girlfriend Barbara (MISSI PYLE) and his two kids Heather (ARIELLE KEBBEL) and Billy (RYAN PINKSTON), who comprise the only white people on board. Then there's amorous couple Cherry (SOMMORE) and DJ (BRIAN HOOKS) who want to have sex everywhere in the plane, and security guard Jamiqua (MO'NIQUE) who earlier frisked well-endowed model Jerome (DWAYNE ADWAY). Also on board is an older blind man (JOHN WITHERSPOON) who claims to be a player, as well as Giselle (K.D. AUBERT), Nashawn's ex-girlfriend.

With plenty of black themed amenities for both the upper and lower class passengers, the plane lifts off on its inaugural flight and the partying and assorted shenanigans soon begin.

    HOW OTHERS RATED THIS MOVIE


    Curious if this title is entertaining, any good, and/or has any artistic merit?
    Then read OUR TAKE of this film.


    (Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


    OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
    Here's a quick look at the content found in this R-rated comedy. Profanity consists of at least 56 "f" words, while other expletives and colorful phrases are also uttered. Sexually related dialogue (some of it explicit) occurs throughout the film, as does a running gag about an adult couple having or trying to have sex everywhere on the plane (we see movement and hear related sounds regarding intercourse and oral sex). Other sexually related humor and visuals are present (including those related to a gay man), while various women are seen in various states of revealing attire (some of which show a lot of cleavage).

    Various characters have varying degrees of bad attitudes, while the film is an equal opportunity offender as it trots out potentially offensive stereotypes for various races, genders and more (and a dog is accidentally killed just off screen - for attempted laughs). Several instances of crude humor are present, while characters drink and/or use drugs (pot and hallucinogenic mushrooms) and one has an unlit cigar. Other imitative behavior occurs.

    If you're still concerned about the film and its appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home who may be interested in seeing it, we suggest that you take a closer look at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content.


    ALCOHOL OR DRUG USE
  • A song has a lyric about fly and get high (a double meaning).
  • Muggsy asks Mack if he brought (what sounded like) the bong and the pilot says he did.
  • We see a Colt 45 ad on the plane.
  • We see champagne by a woman on the plane.
  • A blind passenger orders a quadruple cognac and something else.
  • Muggsy asks for a drink and Blanca says there's no drink down where he's looking (her cleavage), prompting him to say, "The hell it ain't."
  • We see Mack rolling a joint.
  • Mack says that he's afraid of heights and then adds that they're higher than a certain rapper at an awards show.
  • Passengers are offered champagne and wine on the plane in one class, while those in low are offered Colt 45 (that's described) and something else.
  • The blind man orders cognac.
  • Miscellaneous people have drinks and the bartender makes a special drink for Heather.
  • A man states that they're going to keep going until everyone is passed out.
  • Mack complains that he's had 15 of Gaeman's mushrooms and that they've had no effect.
  • Mr. Hunkee has a drink and then another.
  • Mack and Muggsy share a joint. The latter leaves and Mack smokes more pot and takes another mushroom. He then begins to hallucinate and then passes out (some believe he's dead, but we later see him alive).
  • The blind man has a drink.
  • BLOOD/GORE
  • Nashawn belches and then suffers from intestinal problems following an in-flight meal. He then races to the bathroom, pulls down his pants and sits on the toilet where we hear many diarrhea-related sounds. After flushing, he ends up getting partially sucked into the toilet.
  • Mr. Hunkee has to use the plane's bathroom, but Johnny won't leave (he's the attendant). We hear Mr. Hunkee fart and Johnny then sprays air deodorizer. He then plays a song with the repeated lyric, "Push it" as motivation for Mr. Hunkee who we see straining. We then see an exterior shot of the plane that drops down (the joke being Mr. Hunkee has been successful in defecating).
  • We hear Mack vomiting into an air sickness bag.
  • DISRESPECTFUL/BAD ATTITUDE
  • Although all of it's played for comedy, the film is an equal opportunity offender, portraying stereotypes for various races (white, black, Latino, Arabic, etc.), sexual orientations (gays), genders (women) and other groups (Catholic priests) that some may find offensive.
  • Those sensitive to violence against animals used for comedy, might not like the following: An airline worker says that Nashawn's dog is too big to go onboard the plane, so he puts it into a cage. The worker then tosses the cage (with the dog inside it) out the jet way door (we don't see any impact). Later, a flight attendant hits the wrong button and the cargo bay door opens, with luggage and the dog cage being sucked out of the plane. Nashawn then sees all of that (including the cage presumably with the dog inside) being sucked into the jet engine.
  • Various men refer to women as "bitches."
  • A defense lawyer in a court case has a bad attitude toward Nashawn.
  • Billy tells his older sister, "You're such a whore."
  • Barbara is a snob and is uncomfortable that she and her boyfriend's family are the only white people in the gate and then on the plane (although she later changes her tune when she meets a well-endowed black man).
  • A blind passenger purposefully gropes various women's butts (one in a short skirt) on the plane while trying to find his seat.
  • We see everyone reacting in fear or anger at a new passenger on the plane who we eventually see is Arabic.
  • We hear that Gaeman has crabs (sexual), and Mack and another man laugh at that.
  • FRIGHTENING SCENES
  • Those with a fear of flying or who've had a bad experience might find the "no pilot" and other such scenes (including a brief dive) as a little tense (although they're played solely for comedy).
  • GUNS/WEAPONS
  • None.
  • IMITATIVE BEHAVIOR
  • Phrases: "What the f*ck?" "I'm just f*cking with you," "Get the f*ck out (of here)," "F*cked up," "Hold the f*ck on," "Oh f*ck," "Shut the f*ck up," "Sit the f*ck back," "We are so f*cked," "F*ck that," "I don't give a f*ck," "Sh*t was genius," "Bullsh*t," "Oh sh*t," "I love that freaky sh*t," "G*ddamn sh*t," "Sh*t-head," "It's the sh*t," "Get their freak on" (sexual), "Bitch" (said various times for women and other things), "What in the hell?" "You're such a whore," "Short ass," "(That's my) Nigger" (said various times), "Sucked," "I don't give a damn," "Dawg," "Nut" and "Balls" (testicle), "Hell yeah," "The hell it ain't," "What the hell is wrong with you?" "You crazy bitch," "Cool as hell," "Gotta drain my monster" (urinate), "Funny as hell," "Big black ass," "Ain't this a bitch?" "Pissing," "Hell no," "Big ass," "Short ass nigger" and "Cheap ass."
  • Muggsy has various tattoos and a gold-capped tooth.
  • Heather wears a midriff-revealing top, as do other young women.
  • We see young Billy dressed and acting like a stereotypical rapper/player.
  • Giselle wears a midriff-revealing top that also shows cleavage.
  • Rather than saying, "Test one two" into a headset, Mack says, "Testicle one two, testicle one two."
  • Some sexual style dancing occurs on the dance floor (suggestive moves and close contact, etc.).
  • JUMP SCENES
  • None.
  • MUSIC (SCARY/TENSE)
  • A tiny bit of suspenseful music plays in the film (and for comedy).
  • MUSIC (INAPPROPRIATE)
  • A song has a lyric about fly and get high (a double meaning).
  • A song has the "f" word in it.
  • We hear Billy singing along to the lyrics, "Hit her with a bat."
  • Other songs had lyrics that we couldn't understand or hear, thus offering the possibility of them potentially containing additional objectionable material.
  • PROFANITY
  • At least 56 "f" words (20 used with "mother" and 1 used sexually), 56 "s" words, 4 slang terms for male genitals ("d*ck" and "monster"), 1 for female ones ("p*ssy"), 1 for breasts ("t*t"), 32 asses (1 used with "hole"), 15 hells, 10 damns, 1 S.O.B., 5 uses of "G-damn," 2 of "Oh my God" and 1 use each of "Oh my sweet black Jesus" and "Swear to God."

  • We see the side of Nashawn's bare butt as he sits on an airplane toilet.
  • Billy tells his older sister, "You're such a whore."
  • Barbara shows some cleavage.
  • To be defiant, Heather tells her father that when she turns 18 later that day, she's going to have sex and then lists the various positions and techniques such as "missionary," "doggy style," "getting tea-bagged" and more.
  • Jamiqua tells another security checker that if she saw Denzel, she'd be "getting straight down with the get down."
  • DJ tells Cherry that he spotted some dirty magazines in the terminal and she then hands him her balled up panties that he then unfolds and smells.
  • We see Mr. Hunkee's point of view as he leers at various women's clothed butts.
  • Jamiqua feels and gropes Jerome while checking him at the security gate. As she wands his crotch, she comments on something being in his pants. She then makes him go into a private room to be searched and suggestively licks her tongue. We then see him in his open shirt with his pants down (he's in his jockeys). She then tells him to drop them (he does, but we don't see anything) and to turn around (saying, "Show me that ass"), mentioning a cavity check (as she puts on a glove), but we don't see anything else.
  • Blanca and Flame talk about some sexual position, with her saying that a guy she had sex with was missing a "nut" and then adds that it's "still up there" (meaning in her body).
  • Flame says that he likes men in uniform, but likes them even better out of uniform.
  • Gaeman explains that his name is not "gay man" meaning, "Not like two men f*cking each other." He then tells Mack that he "likes p*ssy" and then says that everyone will be pregnant by the end of the flight.
  • DJ and Cherry fool around beneath a large blanket on the plane (we can't see anything beyond unspecified movement).
  • A blind passenger purposefully gropes various women's butts (one in a short skirt) on the plane while trying to find his seat.
  • We hear Flame telling the end of a story and saying, "He tasted like chocolate."
  • Blanca shakes her clothed chest (we see cleavage) during a music/security video.
  • Giselle wears a midriff-revealing top that also shows cleavage.
  • A magazine has the phrase "great in the sack" on it.
  • The camera goes up Blanca's body in her short and tight-fitting outfit (representing Muggsy's point of view and stopping at her cleavage). He asks for a drink and she says there's no drink down there, prompting him to say, "The hell it ain't."
  • Blanca puts down Muggsy (in Spanish with English subtitles) by saying, "I bet you have the tiniest penis."
  • The flight number is 69 (presumably a sexual joke).
  • Barbara spots a photo of Jerome on the cover of a magazine and notes the shape of a huge penis in his pants (that first amazes and then excites her). She later meets him, he says it was freezing on the day of that photo shoot and she says that you can't tell. He then says that he's usually hanging out of his boxers (which only excites her even more). When Mr. Hunkee returns, he comments (about the penis), "That thing's got a face on it." Barbara says that it doesn't, but that it's going to (an oral sex reference).
  • A man says "t*t" when looking at a flight attendant's cleavage (as he tries to say something else).
  • Flame says that something make one want to have sex (he uses a slang term for that).
  • The above blind man tells a woman (whose leg he tries to touch) that some woman bounced off a trampoline and landed on his lap where she stayed for 15 years. He then thinks that he's manually stimulating her genitals (he makes related comments and sounds, but we only see him and part of his outreached arm). He then apparently climaxes from the excitement of it all, but we then see that he has his hand in an opened baked potato. He then goes into the bathroom where he encounters Johnny (who's looking through a magazine with a scantly clad woman on the front) and tells him that he has stinky fingers (from what he thinks he was doing).
  • Flame talks to Nashawn about some old romance of his that led to heartache and stomach pumping (an oral sex reference). Nashawn then asks Flame if he was just grinding on him (from behind) and Flame replies that he was a little.
  • DJ and Cherry prepare to have sex in the bathroom. He pulls out a small table and puts her on it, getting between her legs. There's some thrusting and related sounds, but she then says that she can't feel his "d*ck," adding that she isn't complaining. During this, she has a belt tight around his neck, claiming it's something she saw on TV's "Real Sex." He apparently has erection issues as she states that's not how it happened on that show and leaves. He's then mad at his unseen genitals.
  • Mack makes an announcement to all of the players out there that Heather has just turned 18. We then see a line of football players (in uniform) rushing up the aisle.
  • The comment "Get their freak on" is used sexually.
  • Some sexual style dancing occurs on the dance floor (suggestive moves and close contact, etc.).
  • We hear that Gaeman has crabs (sexual), and Mack and another man laugh at that.
  • After a man says that he has to "drain his monster" (urinate), other men (including some Catholic priests) excitedly run down the aisle toward him.
  • We see scantly clad women including women in very small bikinis who are dancing in a music video being filmed on the plane (the camera pans up one such woman's body in such attire). A bartender also wears a bikini top.
  • Commenting on what his daughter earlier said, Mr. Hunkee asks Nashawn what "tea-bagging is." Nashawn then explains that it's repeatedly dipping one's testicles into a woman's mouth.
  • Mr. Hunkee then complains that Barbara is interested in Jerome. Nashawn asks if that's the guy with the "d*ck like a fire hose." When Mr. Hunkee says it is, Nashawn says that he's lost her.
  • Heather tells her dad that she's upset that he and her mom are not together anymore. Mr. Hunkee then says that his wife is now with a woman, but wishes he could be with her as well as both of them (meaning a threesome).
  • Heather asks her dad what "tea-bagging" is and he starts to explain (including some movement) but doesn't finish the demonstration.
  • DJ walks in and asks Mack if it's okay if he and Cherry have sex in the cockpit. Mack is passed out but his head and arms flail about, signaling to the two that it's fine. They then start fooling around and he apparently begins to perform oral sex on her. She acts all excited, but then stifles a yawn. He then pulls down his pants and she's on top with movement until they see Mack and think he's dead.
  • We see Gaeman with three women in bikinis in a hot tub (and one playfully pulls on his nipple).
  • Muggsy is prepared to parachute out of the plane and then complains that Nashawn is going to cause his chute to shoot out prematurely (a sex joke).
  • Blanca states that she made love once in a cockpit and thus knows how to land a plane (saying you haven't had an orgasm until you've done so in descent). She then gets into various positions there to demonstrate what needs to be done next (and suggesting what she was doing). During this, she spreads her legs as wide as possible in front of Nashawn and Muggsy, and then bends over, allowing us to see her small panties as her skirt rides up.
  • We see an exterior shot of DJ and Cherry having sex on the landing gear (her on top with movement, but no nudity) as the plane prepares to land.
  • The blind man unknowingly comes on to Flame, but after learning it's a man says that while he's a player, he doesn't play that way.
  • The term "horny ass" is used to describe Jamiqua.
  • We see some strippers doing their thing around dance poles (in thong bottoms, thus showing most of their bare butts).
  • SMOKING
  • Most every time we see Johnny he has an unlit cigar in his mouth.
  • TENSE FAMILY SCENES
  • Heather tells her dad that she's upset that he and her mom are not together anymore. Mr. Hunkee then says that his wife is now with a woman, but wishes he could be with her as well as both of them (meaning a threesome).
  • TOPICS TO TALK ABOUT
  • Racial, gender, ethnic, and sexual orientation stereotypes used for comedy.
  • The film's portrayal of drug use.
  • Fear of flying.
  • VIOLENCE
  • An airline worker says that Nashawn's dog is too big to go onboard the plane, so he puts it into a cage. The worker then tosses the cage (with the dog inside it) out the jet way door (we don't see any impact). Later, a flight attendant hits the wrong button and the cargo bay door opens, with luggage and the dog cage being sucked out of the plane. Nashawn then sees all of that (including the cage presumably with the dog inside) being sucked into the jet engine.
  • We briefly see video game violence (a character striking others).
  • Barbara hits Mr. Hunkee on the head with a rolled up magazine (after catching him starring at other women's clothed butts).
  • Mr. Hunkee prepares to get in a fight with a bouncer, but it never occurs.
  • A man slips and falls getting out of a hot tub, presumably knocking himself out (or he's dead).
