About the Movie
A very varied group of people are in a precarious situation aboard a plane flying to Mexico City. A technical failure (a kind of justifiable negligence, even though it sounds contradictory, but that’s what human actions are) has endangered the lives of the passengers on Peninsula Flight 2549. The pilots, hardened, experienced professionals are striving, along with their colleagues in the Control Center, to find a solution. The flight attendants and the chief steward are atypical, baroque characters who, in the face of danger, try to forget their own personal problems and devote themselves body and soul to the task of making the flight as enjoyable as possible for the passengers, while they wait for a solution. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and for the same reasons, which could be summarized in two: sex and death. The travelers in Business Class consist of a pair of newlyweds, partygoers, worn out by their wedding celebration; a financier and embezzler; unscrupulous in business but also a father afflicted by his daughter’s estrangement; an inveterate Don Juan with an uneasy conscience who is trying to say goodbye to one of his women (girlfriends); a rural psychic; a queen of the gossip magazines and a Mexican with an important secret. Each of them has a project in Mexico City, either to work or to escape. They all have some kind of secret, not just the Mexican. Their defenselessness in the face of danger provokes a general catharsis among the passengers and the crew, and this ends up becoming the best way to escape from the idea of death. This catharsis, developed in the tone of a riotous, moral comedy, fills the time with sensational confessions that help them forget the anguish of the moment.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: To throw caution to the winds is one thing, but to jettison control of tone at the same time seems a liberty too far.
Fresh: Almodovar is grabbing you by the lapels and talking into your face and making you see the life that's around you. "I'm So Excited" is frivolous, but it's the frivolity of a passionate and thinking person.
Fresh: It's broad, occasionally uproarious, a little wheezy, and every so often inspired.
Rotten: Too broad for the tarmac.
for lovers of Pedro
This is quirky and really enjoyable, it's very sexy in scenes, don't watch with kids or your mum! I recommend, definitely.
You call this a comedy?
I wasted my money renting this movie. Expecting a comedy instead it was soft porn. Fluent in Spanish for the life of me I did not laugh once.
Worst Almodovar Film Ever
I am a huge Almodovar fan. I was looking forward to this movie and was so disappointed when I saw it. He is trying to re-create the slap stick off the wall comedy of days past ( Think Dirty Habits, High Heels, etc) and misses by a mile. I love off the wall dark humor and found this Almodovar film to be just tasteless.
