After an unpleasant ride on the not-so-friendly-skies, Nashawn Wade (Kevin Hart) wins a multimillion dollar lawsuit and starts his own airline where minority travelers can feel welcome.
"Soul Plane" lands in stores this week from MGM (DVD $26.98). A "Mile High" unrated version, including scenes omitted from the theatrical release, is available for the same price.
Both versions include deleted scenes, outtakes, a photo gallery and commentaries from the cast members and director Jessy Terrero.
Instead of first class and coach, riders on the fictional NWA airline sit in first class -- where they're served filet mignon and Cristal -- or low class -- where chicken and Colt 45 are offered.
Post movie critic Ann Hornaday described the movie as "only fitfully funny" and wrote, "It makes up for what it lacks in genuine humor by overdosing viewers with outrageous sexuality and outsize stereotypes."
Rap artists Snoop Dogg and Method Man, Mo'Nique, John Witherspoon, D.L. Hughley and Tom Arnold co-star.
