Pedro Almodóvar returns to his roots in this outrageous sex farce whose sheer campiness almost obscures its subversive political barbs. Filmed in rainbow colours with bitching, back-biting, and bj's all around this certainly is comedy at its most gay, and the three diva flight attendants (played to perfection by Javier Cámara, Raúl Arévalo, and Carlos Areces) do their best to stoke the flames with one diligently praying to his cardboard saints, one preying on the copilot, and one unable to tell a lie no matter how terrible the truth is. But delve beneath the hilariously tacky surface features and the state of the plane suddenly mirrors the state of the nation: the pampered elite in First Class include a swindler, a cheat, a murderer, and a nymphomaniac or two while the peasants in Economy remain blissfully unaware of any impending doom thanks to a well-meaning stewardess and a bottle of sedatives. Furthermore, the plane is forced to stay aloft because every airport is either holed up with security concerns or facing bankruptcy. Written and directed by Almodóvar this is also a wry tribute to himself with a cast of former mainstays (Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas are handed laughably minor roles) and a few in-jokes sure to make his fans chuckle. A tasteless and delightfully vulgar mash-up of 1980’s "Airplane" and all those oh-so serious "Airport" movies, shaken and served up like a Valencia cocktail.

It has it moments, but the preview makes you think that it will be much more outrageous and comedic than it really was. Maybe something was lost in translation and I'm not familiar with this director's work but I found it just plain strange and I don't know that I will be going back for a second look.

Almadovar goes from the absurd to the poignant when you look at the realm of all of his movies.. This movie is farcical and as usual he is on the lookout to shock you... Not one of his best ones but has its funny moments ...and I have not seen any of his movies without sexual content...

I really liked Almodovar's Talk To Her, so this was a disappointment. It's hard to imagine anyone watching the whole thing.

Almodovar says that this is his 'gayest film yet'. while it appears to be a romp it is also being said that is it a critique of the current state of the Spain - a populace anesthetized while their leaders live profligate lives.
