EP. 317 — View From The Top

Paul, June, and Jason break down the 2003 Gwyneth Paltrow rom-com View From The Top, a movie with all the pieces to a film that works but inexplicably doesn’t. They discuss Gwyneth’s perplexing choice to become a pilot, Mark Ruffalo ordering “a cheese pizza with everything on it,” the bonkers blooper reel, and Mike Myers’ attention-stealing performance. Plus, June regales us with the tale of Paul’s trashy drink order at the Lake Havasu Chili’s.

Paul Scheer [00:00:00] Stanley Kubrick made Full Metal Jacket. But if he had the guts to tell the true story of America’s militia and the aviation industry, he would have made this movie. We saw A View From the Top. So you know what that means.  Music [00:00:22] [Intro Song] Paul Scheer [00:00:33] Hello, people of Earth and welcome to How Did This Get Made? I am Paul Scheer and today we are talking about the 2003 Gwyneth Paltrow film, A View From the Top, a movie that she has said is terrible. And what do you need to know about this film? It’s got a bunch of celebrities in it from Mark Ruffalo, Christina Applegate, Candice Bergen, Rob Lowe. The list goes on and on. Mike Myers. And it is about a small town girl who grew up in a trailer park outside of Nevada who decides to chase her dreams into the sky and become a stewardess. That’s about it. She falls in love along the way. But we’ll get into it all. As soon as I introduce my two co-hosts, please welcome Jason
