Soul Plane is a 2004 American comedy film directed by Jessy Terrero, written by Chuck Wilson and Bo Zenga and starring Tom Arnold, Kevin Hart, Method Man and Snoop Dogg. Supporting actors include Mo'Nique, Loni Love, K.D. Aubert, D.L. Hughley, Godfrey and Sofia Vergara. The film revolves around multiple characters in different scenarios on-board an airplane. Soul Plane garnered negative reviews from critics and was a box office bomb, grossing $14 million worldwide against a $16 million budget.


Nashawn Wade (Kevin Hart) claims that he has loved planes since he was a baby, but he has a horrible experience with a typical airline: his dog Dre was classified as a checked baggage instead of a carry-on, he eats a horrible airline meal, his buttocks gets stuck in the toilet while he has diarrhea (due to his meal) during turbulence, and Dre is fatally sucked through a jet engine (after a stewardess accidentally opens the cargo door). In response to the torture he has, he sues the airline and is awarded $100,000,000 by the jury. He decides to use the money to start his own airline, called N.W.A. (Nashawn Wade Airlines), whose acronym and logo are a pop culture reference to rap group N.W.A. The airline specifically caters to African Americans and hip hop culture. The terminal at the airport is called the Malcolm X terminal, where two non-working TSA Agents, Jamiqua (Mo'Nique) and Shaniece (Loni Love), are goofing off instead of checking belongings. The plane is a heavily modified Boeing 747SP, customized with low-rider hydraulics, spinners, blended winglets to compensate for the drag from the decorations, and a dance club. The safety video is also a parody of the Destiny's Child song "Survivor".
