Why just fly when you can soar with soul? Take a ride on the Soul Plane.
After a humiliating and horrific experience on a commercial flight, Nashawn Wade (Kevin Hart) sues and is awarded a $100 million settlement. Determined to make good with his newfound wealth he decides to create the airline of his dreams. With the help of his cousin Muggsy (Method Man), Nashawn creates NWA Airlines, the first full-service carrier designed to cater to the urban traveler.
A one-of-a-kind airliner, NWA's metallic purple and chrome-colored plane comes complete with a hot onboard dance club, live DJs and funky music, its own sassy security crew (including Mo'nique), sexy flight attendants (including Sofia Vergara), a bathroom attendant named Johnny (D L Hughley), and a first class section where the Cristal flows like the flightpath non-stop.
Departing on its maiden voyage out of Los Angeles, NWA flight #O-69 leaves the ground en route to New York City with a full passenger roster and Capitan Mack (Snoop Dogg) behind the controls in the tricked-out cockpit. The passengers include Nashawn's furious ex-girlfriend, Giselle (K D Aubert), as well as Elvis Hunkee (Tom Arnold), his girlfriend, Barbara (Missi Pyle), and his two kids (Ryan Pinkston and Arielle Kebbel). As the onboard party gets more outrageous, the customers get wilder, and chaos reigns throughout the aircraft, Nashawn is forced to land the plane himself and save his airline. With the help of Muggsy, his crew, and Mr. Hunkee, Nashawn brings the plane down in a climax that gives "flying the friendly skies" a whole new meaning.
The film boasts numerous cameos, including NBA star Karl Malone, rappers Lil John and The Ying Yang Twins, Big Boy, MTV Veejay La La and music video director Chris Robinson. The music supervisor was Melodee Sutton with music by The RZA.
