The surprising success of POLICE ACADEMY, a rip-off of AIRPLANE!, inspired several look-alike projects, including STEWARDESS SCHOOL, which technically brings the rip-off cycle full circle. STEWARDESS SCHOOL takes a look at some would-be airline attendants who get involved in sky-high hijinx. Philo (Brett Cullen) is a student at pilots' school who gets thrown out thanks to the antics of his party-animal pal George (Donald Most). George and Philo then set off to become flight attendants. STEWARDESS SCHOOL runs down the plot trail like a checklist, making sure each expected scene is in its proper slot. It's never funny, merely sophomoric and dull.
