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, Nashawn creates the full service airline of his dreams, complete with sexy stewardesses, funky music, a hot onboard dance club, and a bathroom attendant. Departing from all-new Terminal X in Los Angeles, Soul Plane gives "fly" a whole new meaning taking its passengers on a maiden voyage full of comedy.

Did You Know?

Tom Arnold tells everybody that notices his daughter yelling in the airport that they were "punked". Arnold helped out in a "punking" on the first season of the show Punk'd. Ryan Pinkston, who plays Billy Hunkee on Soul Plane, is a regular field agent on Punk'd, as well.

Revealing mistakes: The supposed Worldwide Airlines jet has no airline markings of any kind when Nashawn is being hauled away on the stretcher.

Flame: [calmly, after a stewardess has whispered something into his ear] I'll handle this.
Flame: [screams] THE CAPTAIN'S DEAD!

User Review

Which Way to the Emergency Exit?

Rating: 2/10

Somebody decided to make a "black version" of Airplane.

Somebody decided to make a really, really bad "black version" of Airplane.

Somebody decided to make a really, really bad "black version" of Airplane that ran out of humor after the first twenty minutes.

Somebody decided to make a really, really bad "black version" of Airplane that ran out of humor after the first twenty minutes and instead spent all of its time insulting the intelligence of the audience and the cast.

This movie managed to violate the laws of physics by sucking and blowing at the same time. If nothing else, it deserves to be remembered for that accomplishment.

It's not a black thing, it's not a white thing, it's just a bad thing. A really, really bad thing. Picking it apart point-by-point would be a waste of time. The best thing that can be said about the movie is that there was a purple airplane in it. Do yourself a favor... go buy a picture of a purple airplane, and you will have gotten the best of what this movie had to offer.

This one definitely goes under the category of "What the !^@@&*! were they thinking????"
